Fall Decor: Five Pretty Ways to Decorate Your Home with Pumpkins


1. Stack The Up. If you can find a great "fairytale pumpkin", which gets its name from the flat, wide shape, you can stack them up in large pots on either side of your front door. Adorn the pumpkin stack with pine cones or fall leaves. Image via The Cottage Nest

5. Put Them on A Pedestal. If you have pillar candles on candle stands or pedestals, simply swap them out with mini pumpkins for fall. Pictured above: Four Beautiful Pumpkin Centerpieces - Chatelaine
