Sweet and spooky: DIY pumpkin ideas

I'm sure by now you have all found your Halloween outfit and decor inspiration, but none the less, I'd like to offer a few versions here with a more feminine touch.

If you know how to crochet (it does require a certain skill), Flax & Twine show you a Crochet Pumpkin tutorial here. Paint your pumpkin any base colour you want, and then crochet away.

Poppytalk keeps it seasonal, with a Fall inspired leafy decoupage. Skill required is minimal, and this is something you can definitely get all little hands involved with and fun for kids.
If you're a Graphic designer, or Scandinavian, you're more than likely to be drawn to this minimalist version, with a simple colour palette and Aztec graphic lines. Homey Oh My shows you how it's done here, although it's not rocket science.
Last, but definitely not least, my favourite pumpkin of the lost is The Merrythought's Fresh floral pumpkin. This one is just the right mix of spooky and sweet. Have a browse at all your options, and if you have some great links to share, please comment below.
