These super fun and easy DIY modern painted pumpkins would be perfect to place outside your doorstep, welcoming trick-or-treaters near and far.

Splattering/speckling designs are very popular for ceramics, particularly the messier and streakier ones where you can sense the force and direction of the splatter. While the less premeditated the better, this technique takes practice to get those messy but still defined results. Why not use this cool idea for pumpkins? Make some cool splatter pieces for your modern Halloween decor!
Try something fun and cute and kinda whimsical with your pumpkins without much labor or skill. These two eucalyptus branches look like antlers, or bunny ears, and then the face just has to be added on. I don’t know what animals or creatures are these but they look super cute and adorable. Take a couple of minutes to make them!
We’ve just shared some constellation pumpkins for trendy galaxy-inspired decor, and this idea is related to them. These are cool moon phase pumpkins in black and white, great for modern decor. The moon phases are painted, and painting pumpkins is far superior to carving them: there’s virtually no mess, and there’s no danger of cutting one’s finger on those stupid little serrated blades that come in pumpkin-carving kits. Plus, the possibilities are endless. Read how to paint the moon phases on your pumpkins in the tutorial.
This idea is super modern, simple and awesome! This a chalkboard pumpkin, which works not only as a decoration but also as a place card: you may chalk the names right on the pumpkins. You may also leave some messages on these pumpkins for your guests or just write something like ‘spooky’, ‘boo’, ‘eek’ – an ideal option for modern Halloween decor.
Here’s another simple and modern tutorial to go for: these are modern pumpkins that are painted and then spruced up with usual paint pens in black and white. After the pumpkins fully dry, use the paint paints to draw on the designs. Make sure the pen tip is fully loaded with paint and don’t press too hard or else the layers of paint might scratch off. The patterns are totally up to you – geometric or any other that are associated with modern decor.
These pumpkin decorations aren’t messy – you won’t have to carve or drill anything. They are spray painted in traditional fall colors – mint and terracotta after attaching letters to them. The idea is about spray painting the whole – a pumpkin with letters to make it look unified. They are really unique and bold modern decorations for Halloween.
