Spooky Ways to Decorate White Pumpkins!
I am loving white pumpkins this year!  In the past I have resisted buying them, but this year there are so many around that I just couldn’t pass them up!  I adore how they add such a glamorous touch to Halloween!  And why can’t Halloween be glamorous?  Plus I’ve always wanted to try this quick pumpkin decoration that I saw in Martha Stewart a few years back.  Martha never seems to go out of style, in fact dressed up pumpkins are all the rage this year!

This is such a simple little DIY.  Inexpensive.  Easy.  Gorgeous!  
What’s not to love about that?!

Spooky Ways to Decorate White Pumpkins!

Here’s How To:

  • All you need are: white pumpkins, sassy black stockings, and black velvet ribbon.
  • Stretch your sassy stockings over your pumpkin, tying knots at the top and bottom of the pumpkin.  Finish off with a velvet ribbon.
  • Voila!  A glamorous and spooky Halloween decoration.

So easy it’s scary.

    How funny that the first 2 pics I click on show and tell Friday were yours! Guess I am drawn to your pics. I think this is a super cute idea! Never would have thought of it, and it’s so easy to do. I think it adds a little glam/gothic look to the pumpkin. Nice 🙂

    This is such a great idea!! I was looking for something to use in the center of my DR table to go along with my Halloween Decor Dining Room and this would fit my Victorian style of decorating. Thanks for the inspiration!
