Gourds, pumpkins make festive fall decor

October 23, 2008


The variety and abundance of pumpkins, squashes and gourds make it easier than ever to decorate this fall. Try these quick ideas:

¢ For a small, seasonal candleholder, cut a hole to fit a votive or tea light, dry out the flesh and enjoy the quick pick-me-up.

¢ Festoon the top of the pumpkin, with berries, dried or silk flowers, beads or fruits for table or porch.

¢ Choose pumpkins of various shapes and sizes and stack to display.

¢ Create a jack-o'-lantern sans carving by attaching fruits and vegetables for facial features.

¢ Hide dead spots in the garden by piling the colorful bounty in empty beds or window boxes.
