You've never seen pumpkins look this cute. 🎃

We've got a lot to celebrate come fall. For one, we have the season itself to cherish! Who doesn't love flannels, cozy sweaters, and the beautiful fall foliage?! Then we have holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. One is a bit sinister and ghostly (aside from the candy), while the other is cheerful and reminds us to feel grateful! All of these things, however, can use pumpkins as a form of decoration. And speaking of pumpkin decorations, they also make beautiful fall centerpieces! In fact, there's so much related content out there, that we curated a list pumpkin centerpieces created by reliable bloggers and crafty-hands.

Turkey Day obviously calls for a gorgeous DIY Thanksgiving centerpiece. But Halloween and other fall occasions could use one, too! Whether you have a fall birthday party to attend, a Friendsgiving, or any other fun event, these pumpkin centerpieces are a great way to decorate for the occasion! Scroll through this list, and you'll surely find something to match the vibe that you're going for. Whether it's a disco ball pumpkin, a carved pumpkin, or a painted pumpkin in your favorite colors, there's something for everyone on the list ahead. You'll also find both easy and more elaborate projects depending on your preferences. When you're done, be sure to comment below on which one you liked the most.

A little Mod Podge can go a long way! Add some gold confetti and colorful paint into the mix, and you've got yourself a flashy pumpkin centerpiece. Arrange the pumpkins as a stack, horizontal line, or any way you want to for the look you desire.

Okay Disney fans, this one is for you. Elevate your table scene by incorporating a pumpkin replica of Mickey Mouse himself as your centerpiece this fall. Like-minded friends will absolutely love this idea, and it only takes three pumpkins (real or fake), and some steady hands as you make your cutout.

No carve = no problem! For this one, you could either grab faux mini white pumpkins or buy a fresh mini pumpkin and paint it yourself. Then, you'll need a gold paint pen to draw the geometric shapes on it.

Put your DIY pumpkin into practical use by using it as a succulent holder! Carve a round pumpkin from the top, stuff inside with a plastic bowl or container, then place your succulents inside! You could add spiders on and around the centerpiece for a spooky touch, or any miscellaneous decor that fits the vibe of your occasion.

Yes, Halloween can still call for a crafty centerpiece! Carve a jack-o'-lantern however you normally would, and just plop them on your table! A table runner and some candles can help add to the eerie factor.

Find yourself a hollow, plastic pumpkin and get your power tools ready! Drill a bunch of small holes all throughout the body of the pumpkin, then carve a hole at the bottom big enough to fit a light of your choice. The result is this show-stopping, glowing pumpkin!

This one is as simple as it looks! Grab a basket and fill it with lots of pumpkins and other fall, harvest items. Your table will feel so warm afterwards!


Okay, so this one requires a bit of work, but the results are absolutely stunning. The velvet, vibrant green pumpkins laid across a charming table cloth (with some leaves and gold dinnerware to complement) will really sell the look.

If you're looking for an easy graceful look that still embodies autumn, place a few pumpkins on a standing glass tray. You could garnish it with some fake moss, too.

Snag a smaller-sized tray, and stack it with mini pumpkins (whatever color, really). Then, DIY a fabric tag that reads the word "blessed" to attach to the piece. Perfect for a Thanksgiving dinner!

If you think you have decent penmanship, then write a couple of seasonal phrases on a few colored pumpkins. Centering them on a table, either stacked or in a line, is the only thing left to do.

Throwing a '70s themed disco party in the fall? What better to incorporate both themes than by making your centerpiece a pumpkin disco ball? Lots of tape, glitter, and silver paint are necessary. Plus, you could even get mini disco-balls to surround your centerpiece for some flare.
