12+ Easy Ideas for Pumpkins

OK…so am I the only one waiting for those big cardboard boxes of pumpkins to arrive at the stores? Where are they? There’s not a pumpkin in sight here…yet! So just in case you are in the same fix I am, I am sharing 12+ ways you can get your pumpkin on…without a single real pumpkin! There’s a little bit of everything… pillows, wreaths, planters, candles and more! And if you know me, it’s all easy to do! Who needs real pumpkins when this kind lasts from year to year? ;-)

  1. YOU are one very creative lady, great line-up! My favorite is the Country Living pumpkins! So fun!
    Happy Saturday, Deb!

  2. I have not seen any pumpkins yet either :-( I suppose we in blogland get a bit too excited for Fall to begin. C'est dommage. However, you have given me the inspiration to plow forward (ha ha) and make some of my own. Your pumpkins are too cute! Merci!!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  4. Your pumpkins are great and so many ideas. thanks so much for sharing this with us. Some really pretty pumpkins.
    I saw some the other day at Walmart. They were pretty big and $4.99 for any in the big display.
    Good luck on finding pumpkins. I don't know if you have Sprouts there, but they always have great pumpkins and are priced very good. Happy Hunting.
