As we indulge in Halloween candy and count the Fridays left in the year (we don’t know about you, but we’re excited to say our goodbyes to 2020), fall orange hues and pumpkins have us feeling inspired. Aside from simply peppering pumpkins in and around your home, we have some easy pumpkin DIY ideas to cozy up your patio and get you in a spooky, sugary spirit.

Paint Pumpkins

For those of us who have no patience for gutting a gourd, painting pumpkins is an easy DIY that gives us a great way to decorate with minimal creative effort for maximum effect. Find your acrylic paints, some sponge brushes, and a stencil or two if you’d like and go wild. The creative folks at House Beautiful curated a variety of amazing no-carve ideas as starting point inspiration.

Carve Pumpkins

If you don’t mind getting a little messy, there’s nothing quite as seasonally nostalgic as carving pumpkins. Print a few simple stencils (Real Simple has some great ones) as guides for an easy pumpkin DIY, get out your carving kit and start hacking away at some unsuspecting pumpkins. Don’t forget to save the pumpkin seeds, dry them, and roast them for a delicious snack.

Wax Pumpkins  

A cool way to create some bright pumpkins for your patio is with some crayons in your favorite colors and a hairdryer. Melt the crayons over the top of some pumpkins and let the wax drip over the sides for an easy pumpkin DIY that will make an eclectic statement for your outdoor space.

Bake Pumpkins

Pumpkin bread for breakfast? Yes, please! One of the more satisfying easy pumpkin DIY ideas is to bake Jeanine and Jack’s delicious pumpkin bread. And don’t think you’ll have to gut a gourd for this one, because we’re not about that life. Simply mix in canned pumpkin purée for a light, yummy pumpkin loaf that’s actually on the healthier side. We’re convinced the best easy pumpkin DIY ideas are ones where you can eat the finished project.

Sip Pumpkins

Halloween happy hour at home wouldn’t be complete without a pumpkin cocktail. Leah at Freutcake has concocted the best pumpkin spice margarita that couldn’t be simpler. Pumpkin purée (canned for an easy DIY, of course) seasoned with all the fall flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and brown sugar and mixed with tequila is the base of this yummy fall drink. Shake well with Cointreau and a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and toast to the almost-end of 2020.

Patio Pumpkins

Once you’ve chosen which easy pumpkin DIY ideas to tackle, you’re probably ready to deck the deck with pumpkins and chill out on the patio. Is your outdoor space ready for fall, too, or is it time to replace your patio furniture? Our Graphic Outdoor Furniture Collection is available in brightly colored and durable aluminum (including a super festive orange color) and space-age Sunbrella® fabric. Soft yet sturdy, the removable cushions are fade- and mildew-resistant, so no matter what happens this Halloween they can be easily cleaned. Graphic was made to be seen, and it can’t help but command the room (or the patio).

Take a seat, eat your pumpkin bread, and sip your pumpkin spice margarita. There’s no telling where this Stori is headed.
