3. Drill holes with a power drill all around the pumpkin. This creates a spooky effect when lit with a candle at night.
4. Use a linoleum cutter to create fun grid patterns along the outside of your pumpkin.
We used both real and artificial pumpkins. Can you tell the difference? Reusing the artificial pumpkins year after year is a helpful timesaver. Also, I love mixing traditional orange pumpkins with white “ghost” pumpkins and all kinds of gourds. Consider using a collage of pumpkins and gourds as inexpensive wedding decorations if you’re having a fall wedding. They’re easy, cheap and perfect for the season!
Shop our other wedding reception decorations to add the finishing touches.
Tip: Growing your own pumpkins? Try deeply scratching a name or spooky saying into the pumpkin as it is on the vine. A sharp pointed tool like a linoleum cutter works best. The pumpkin will scar over leaving your words or name.
