The All Things Creative Group is back with a bonus edition of All Things Pumpkins and Gourds! We’ve looked into our archives and found over 50 decorating ideas, recipes, and crafts involving pumpkins and gourds, and we’ve put them all together here so you can find them easily.
But first, let me introduce you to my team.
On Sutton Place, me, and Tried & True.
You guys know that we grow both pumpkins and gourds in our garden, right? Well, in case you didn’t, here’s a post I did last year about our little experiment in growing white pumpkins.
And you can see how I used some of those white pumpkins in decorating last year in our post White Pumpkin Reflections. Some of the pumpkins were used at a wedding, and some of the seeds that I saved are growing in the garden right now.
Now, I know we can’t all grow our own pumpkins and gourds, but we sure can make those cheap plastic gourds and pumpkins look a lot better by painting them. See how to get this finish by reading my post How to Burnish Cheap Plastic Gourds and Pumpkins.
Over the summer, some decorative gourds grew in our garden, and I tucked them into these window boxes to give them some fall flair. You can read all about it in the post Using Gourds in Fall Window Boxes.
And just recently, I polished these up and used these Gourds on Our Fall Mantel.
