Looking for faux pumpkins? Here are some of my favorite faux pumpkins with textures like metal and wood and glitter and straw and so much more.

Just in case you were wondering?

I’m sitting here in 105-degree weather and going all Anne of Green Gables today because I’m extra thankful.

Thankful I live in a world where there are Septembers just around the corner.

And Octobers.

And faux pumpkins.

Now don’t get me wrong. I love a real pumpkin. Here’s my proof. Here’s a link to my front steps from several years ago. These are the pumpkins that you could see from outer space.

I couldn’t help myself. I was in the middle of the grocery store and they were having a giant pumpkin sale and somehow all those pumpkins just jumped into my cart.

Or three carts actually.

This year I’m going to have real pumpkins for outside, but inside?

I’m all about the faux.

Here are some of my favorite pumpkins (and where you can get them and 21 ideas for decorating with them) of all time.

And now?

Let’s discuss faux pumpkins, starting with these blue and white pumpkins.

I just ordered them from Marshall’s. If your local store doesn’t have them? You can easily order them online. They are SO CUTE.

They are 7″ in diameter and they are from the Martha Stewart collection.

They are only $12.99.

You can see them here.

And look at these other blue and white pumpkins I just ordered.

(total aside: are you noticing a theme here?)

They come in a set of six and the patterns are all different.

They are smaller than the other blue and white pumpkins I shared so they are perfect to mix in together.

You can see them here.

favorite faux pumpkins straw

I pull out these straw pumpkins every year.

And this year? I found SUPER SIMILAR ONES.

You can see them here.

For a couple of more affordable options check out this woven pumpkin here.

And this cornhusk pumpkin here.

(total aside: at the risk of stating the obvious, 2023 has an amazing pumpkin selection this year.)

favorite faux pumpkins wood

This wood pumpkin is my most asked about pumpkin.

I bought them years ago and every year when I meet them again I fall in love.

I found super similar ones here.

And then? 

In my search, I found this pumpkin that looks hand-carved.

It’s so different.

favorite faux pumpkins grapevine

// corn husk pumpkin // grapevine pumpkins //

These grapevine pumpkins are the best.

I use them inside and outside and they only get better with each year.

I found some super similar here.

And they look so cute with a woven pumpkin like this.

favorite faux pumpkins metal

These metal pumpkins have been on my porch for five years and counting.

They have the prettiest rusted tops and the metal makes them look antique.

You can see a super similar version here.

I also found the cutest white ceramic pumpkin with white vines.

Yes please to these toile pumpkins.

I got these pumpkins years ago from Hobby Lobby and I never saw them there again.

I found these that are similar except green.

I pull out these glitter pumpkins every year.

I just found some that are similar on Etsy (that I think are prettier).

They come in tons of glitter colors and you can see them here.

I love pumpkins with texture.

These white chenille pumpkins are my favorite every year.

And these white chenille pumpkins are super similar.

I also thought this set of black pumpkins with brushed gold was so cute.

And in case you wanted to make your own faux pumpkin?

I have a few ideas.

Here’s the project that I talked about yesterday at Channel 5 Studios in Dallas.

It’s a twig pumpkin you can make yourself.

See the project here.

Here are these simple blue and white pumpkins I made last year.

All you need are paint and scrapbook paper.

These chalkboard word-find pumpkins are so fun and easy to make.

All you need are stickers and chalk.

You can make these sweater wool pumpkins.

It’s super easy once you felt the wool in your washing machine.

See the entire pumpkin craft here.

If you find any other pumpkins you want me to source for you?

I’d be more than happy to help.

Here’s to Septembers everywhere.

And the pumpkins that love them.

    The price of the green leaf pumpkins is crazy. I receive that companies magazines and everything they have comes with a hefty price tag. I just look at it. Lol. But one could stencil their own toile or leaf print pumpkins and then just seal it. But I love how many pumpkins you have. Such the decorator. Fall..bah hum bag..maybe I will get there some day. 😉

    Wow! What a treasure trove! I think my favorite is the corn husk pumpkin. Is that the one that looks like little bits of tree bark? I tried that link but it took me to a braided straw pumpkin. If you get a chance--I know you are busy decorating and sourcing cool things for us--would you send the link to the one that looks like tree bark? Thank you!

    It is hard to think bout decorating for fall when the weatherman is calling for 97 on Friday this week but looking at all your ideas for pumpkins certainly an inspiration. Good time to stay inside and do some crafting. I have already white washed a large resin pumpkin I snatched up at our local thrift store for under $3 and spray painted some faux acorns with hammered copper . Look great Next project is to decoupage some faux pumpkins with some pretty paper fall napkins I have just for this purpose. Take that you 90 degree temps and horrible humidity here in N.C.

    One of these days I'm going to follow through on knitting some pumpkins. Not sure this is the year, though. I'm not quite at the stage of decorating with pumpkins yet, but I have been veering into somewhat more muted, autumnal colors indoors lately.

    Hi KariAnne, I love all of your pumpkins and I’m already decorating with them for fall! Many of mine are lanterns, so they light up! The pumpkin pillows are already relaxing in my living room! Another source for great pumpkin and fall items us the At Home store. They ship too. So you might check that store for your post. And, another idea, take 3 white pumpkins that can stack on top of each other, use faux ones if you’d like, add a scarf, a hat, and a face, and you have a snowman for the winter holidays.

    And so it begins... I'm decorating with late summer ideas. Sunflowers, baskets, marigolds and more! I start adding leaves, grapevines, gourds and pumpkins after labor day. I look forward to seeing your new ideas every day. Happy hump day! 🤗😉
