Ideas on Using Gourds, Squash, and Pumpkins in Fall Decor
1. Table runner
Clustering pumpkins and gourds in the center of your table creates a beautiful table runner. Make sure you have varying sizes of the gourds and pumpkins so there is visual interest.
Other things you can add are greenery and berries, leaves and candle pillars for a beautiful table.
Here’s another view of the pumpkin and gourd table runner.
2. Pumpkin Vase
Pumpkins become even more beautiful when they are used as a vase for your fall flowers.
Use decorative cutouts and create a one-of-a-kind lantern to light the path to your door.
4. Window box dressing with pumpkins and gourds
Use your window boxes as a way to add fall color to the exterior of your home.
Adding other elements like mums and leaves will add color to the display.

Wheelbarrows are such a handy tool. Why not put it to work in the fall by making it part of your decorating scheme?
