Funky Fun Pumpkins

Every time, after the rush to finish a flip, I end up in what is, more or less, a flip hangover.  I'm still playing a bit of catch-up and trying to get into a non-flip routine (which always seems to be the toughest part).  Fall has snuck up on me fast and Halloween is a week away!  I'm still not sure where the summer went, let alone fall!  But I digress.  After a short, head-clearing blogging break, I'm back with my usual schedule of babbling and randomness.  Please enjoy. Aside from Christmas, I've never been much into seasonal decorating.  It's been about 6 years since I carved a pumpkin, however these super-fun, a little funky, and a little different pumpkins have me rethinking my stance a bit.

Looking at this floral pumpkin from Hunted Interior I was instantly intrigued about HOW.  It looks painted!  Turns out it's decoupaged and I wouldn't have guessed.

Speaking of decoupaged and painted....

How very Kate Spade.  I'm such a sucker for polka dots, so Sincerely Sara D had me at gold dot.

This little owl from a Modern Dame is so awesomely adorable.  Those eye 'feathers? Gorg.

Any decorating that also involves power tools and instructions that include "drill into pumpkin" I'm totally on board with!

Have you gotten creative on some gourds lately?  What's your favorite non-jack-o-lantern way to decorate them?  I'm taking notes!
