Last Minute Pumpkin Decoration Ideas

The most haunted day of the year is just around the corner and to help you prepare for the frightfest that is Halloween we’ve rounded up some last minute pumpkin decorating ideas courtesy of the legendary Martha Stewart you can use to transform your beautiful home into a house of horrors.

Pumpkin Party Cooler

Take a large and wide pumpkin, cut off the top third, line with a plastic bowl, and add ice and your favourite bottled drinks.

Pumpkin Balloons

A super quick way to brighten up a dull Halloween interior, simply draw facial features onto inflated orange balloons with a permanent marker.

Pumpkin Basket

A great use for lopsided pumpkins: flip it upside down, hollow out the top and add some fresh but spooky-looking dark flowers.

Pumpkin Treat Holder

The exact same idea as the pumpkin party cooler, except you fill this one with treats and sweets.
