Creative DIY Pumpkin Decorations for Your Fall Wedding
Such creative ideas! We studied each one to see what makes it work. So you can then spin off your own decorations from the tips below.
Tip #1 – Turn them into stylish signs.
Great for writing on, pumpkins can actually serve as such cool things as a ‘3D menu’ or a truly unique ‘wedding guest book’! Just add calligraphy in a contrasting color.
Tip #2 – Carve them into something practical.
A pumpkin ‘wine bucket’ is a great way to add a colorful autumn touch to your drinks station. Or use hollowed-out pumpkins as vases for bright floral centerpieces.
Tip #3 – Group pumpkins and gourds into a fall vignette.
Combine large and small ones in orange, green, white, even speckled! And you’ll have an eye-catching pathway display leading to the ceremony or reception.
Tip #4 – Use mini ones as cake adornments.
Moulded out of marzipan, these can transform a simple tiered cake into a delightful ‘pumpkin patch’ wedding cake!
Tip #5 – Add wire or ribbon to make escort and place cards.
With petite pumpkins as a base, simply fashion wire holders for escort cards or tie on satin ribbon as place cards.
