It’s that time of year again... crunchy fall leaves, cute layers and leather boots, and let's not forget pumpkins! Visiting a local pumpkin patch is a tradition for many during the harvest season, but carving them up isn't as fun of a process.
For those who are looking for a less messy and more refined way to decorate for Halloween (like the "blinged out" pumpkin from SettingForFour.com, see above), check out these three styles that bring the bling to the classic pumpkin!

Take your old holiday decorations and give them a new life with pumpkins. This eye-catching design is not only fabulous but also super easy to make! Simply glue gold garland, or Mardi Gras necklaces, in a clockwise pattern. That’s it!
For more of a gold moment, you can spray paint a pumpkin gold before applying the beads. Aside from the Halloween mood, these would make great Fall wedding decorations!

While everyone is embracing spooky this Halloween, go glam! These designs are a literal definition of blinging out. More of a great party piece or outdoor porch accent, a glam pumpkin is a great conversation piece. Be the talk of Instagram and Pinterest once you finish your craft.
These sparkly stunners are really easy to recreate - all they take are some glue and rhinestones or . If you want less sparkle but want to keep the glam, opt for sequins. To amp up the look, try multicolored jewels.

A Touch of Lace
Lace isn’t just for a Halloween costume! This super easy and beautiful craft will give a feminine grace to the average pumpkin. Either with some lace appliques or even a pair of pantyhose, it can be simply applied with a touch of glue. This fancy decoration will have house guests awing over your festive creations instead of cringing in fear of a scary (and maybe smelly) carved pumpkin.
