DIY: Faux Flower Pumpkins

fall 3

I love all things fall and Halloween. Haunted houses, scary movies, ghost stories and decorating, but I am a true girly girl! Sometimes spooky isn’t pretty. I wanted to come up with a way to decorate faux pumpkins pretty enough to keep up through Thanksgiving. This is a super easy DIY to make you feel bright and cheerful even during this dreary scary time of year. I’ve put together a step by step tutorial to make decorating stress free!
