Celebrate Outdoors! - We usually decorate inside for the holidays for our families. Why not spice the holidays up for your neighbors and show everyone your holiday spirit with these super cute outdoor decor ideas? One cute idea is metallic pumpkins. Start by picking out your favorite metallic spray paint. Lay some newspaper out under the pumpkin. Start spraying and let dry completely. You can create some cool affects by taping some items to the pumpkin before spraying the paint. This will leave an imprint of the item on it. You can also create a nice composition using spray painted gourds! http://sarahscoop.com/diy-pumpkins/
Dining Table - Wow your dinner guests by creating some fabulous pumpkin place settings. You can paint small pumpkins and add sequins or cute rhine stones. To add some extra sparkle to the event, cover your pumpkin in glitter! You can also decorate a medium pumpkin with some ribbons and bows and glitter glue. Use some puff paint to give the pumpkin some texture! http://sarahscoop.com/diy-pumpkins/
