Eager to embrace fall, but not about that jack-o-lantern life? Not a problem. Enter: studded pumpkins—the coolest fall trend in home décor maybe ever—and as far as DIY pursuits go, definitely among the easiest.

First, find an assortment of pumpkins (as if you weren’t already searching for an excuse to head to the pumpkin patch). Once you have the perfect one(s), it’s time to paint. You can choose any color you like, though we tend to gravitate toward a neutral palate with gold accents.

After the pumpkins have dried, grab a pack of thumb tacks of your choosing (these, perhaps) and go to town!

Voila! Your oh-so trendy home is now primed for some seasonal cheer. Watch the video at top for a guided how-to.
