35+ Upcycling Ideas and Projects for Fall Pumpkin Decorations

Now, I think we are all aware that my love of fall pumpkin decorations is no secret. I’ve made oodles of upcycled pumpkins over the years. And even though I’m done making them for this year (I think…), perhaps you might still be looking for a few ideas.

Maybe you’re just looking for some general fall or harvest decor. Or perhaps you’re already thinking ahead to Thanksgiving home decor.

OR…maybe you just think pumpkins are cute and plump and you can’t get enough of them! No matter how you feel, there is definitely an upcycled pumpkin idea out there for you.

For instance, my glass bottle pumpkins are always a crowd pleaser. And they started right from our recycling bin!

  1. Great roundup, thank you for including my rusty paint can lid pumpkins!!


  2. Yhanx for collecting all these blogs. I have only made a few of them! Been making upcycled clothing ones for several weeks. One of my personal faves was made by one of “my” vets when I worked at the local VA hospital. He connected two ends of a section of clothes drier hose, painted it orange and added a real pumpkin stem. One more adorable one!

  3. Great post!!! Just what I needed to get me started….thanks.
