Here's the truth: I really don't care about Halloween. I didn't grow up with this holiday, and other than the dark chocolate candy that goes on sale after Halloween, I could not care less for it. Ok, I do like seeing adorable costumes my friends get for their kids.
What I do love, though, is fall. And pumpkins, even though they appear in too many desserts and even coffee during fall, are cute and fun to use as decorations.
Yesterday I bought a pumpkin to decorate for my condo, but did not want to carve it. So I used a pretty wrapping paper that reminded me of Orla Kiely designs as my inspiration, and permanent markers and sparkly nail polish as my tools.

And here it is making friends with one of my orchids.
Have you decorated or carved pumpkins this year? What design did you use?
