Now on to how I styled the velvet pumpkins!
Velvet pumpkins are such a pretty and fun way to decorate during the fall because unlike real pumpkins, velvet pumpkins will last forever. I especially love the HotSkwash pumpkins because their pumpkins have real stems, which is such a beautiful combination next to the velvet!
There are so many creative ways to layer and style velvet pumpkins! The possibilities are endless as you guys will see on this blogger tour! I decided to use my velvet pumpkins on my living room mantle mixed with white pumpkins, pine cones and seeded eucalyptus.
I wanted white pumpkins for my mantle but here in East Texas, it’s too early for pumpkins, so I painted pie pumpkins with gesso and I think they turned out so pretty!
The HotSkwash velvet pumpkins that I used for my mantle are the large coastal set in the LoveFeast Shop. It was so hard for me to choose which colors I wanted to order and but I thought the coastal set would work best on my mantle with the shades of blue painting over my fireplace. 🙂
I also ordered a large ivory one with feathers!
The cool thing about decorating a mantle with pumpkins is you can use various size candles holders to elevate pumpkins and if you slide another pumpkin in front of the candle base and fill with greenery and you won’t see the candle holder.
I like to mix and match the angles that I layer the pumpkins just to give interest.
Wherever you decide to style pumpkins for the fall, you can incorporate pinecones, greenery and branches from your yard, pinecones and even dried flowers!
So many fun possibilities!
