Not Your Ordinary Pumpkin Decorations

Pumpkins are widely associated with Halloween and because of this, these such gourds are a popular item to decorate with. We are all familiar with the carved pumpkin option, creating Jack-O-Lanterns, but today I am showing some other creative options. I have seen painted designs on pumpkins, as well as tape or ribbon-wrapped pumpkins; both can look quite nice. But these ideas struck me because of the unique materials utilized, or the overall concept. Plus, many, if not all of these creations are easy to recreate for those following along at home!
