We love decorating for fall!
Is pumpkin decorating & carving a part of your fall festivities? This year, try this clever idea, use the stem for a nose! 🎃 It’ll be a frugal & fun way to spruce up your porch for fall! Read on to find out how I easily did mine!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but you’re actually not cutting off the stem from your pumpkin like the traditional way of carving pumpkins. Rather, turn it on its side and plan out the rest of the face around the stem.
Easy peasy, right?!
There are so many creative designs you can play around with when decorating your pumpkin. We even listed below a few ideas to give you some inspiration, but, no matter which you choose, your clever pumpkin nose will be the star of your spooky display.
Here are some ideas for creating a pumpkin nose using the stem:
- Place decorative pebbles for the eyes.
- Paint the outside to give it a different color.
- Use construction paper for the facial features.
- Use an old Halloween wig or silly headband for hair.
