About Plastic Pumpkins
Leave the cutting and carving to Edward Scissorhands, because when it comes to using knives, you can cause disaster and destruction instead of delightful decorations. Fortunately, you can ditch the tools this Halloween and decorate with plastic pumpkins instead. These versatile pumpkins make great additions to indoor and outdoor Halloween scenes. Find them in classic orange, crimson red, dark brown, and every color in between. Some mirror the size, shape, and color of real pumpkins; they might even have glossy finishes too. Place these vintage plastic pumpkins on bales of hay or pair them with gourds, squash, and cornstalks for a beautiful fall scene. Create a contemporary scene by decorating pumpkins with materials like markers, glitter, and cut-out shapes. You can dress them up even more with lights in strings of miniature white or color bulbs. Some plastic pumpkins come with removable tops, so you can fill them with candy and goodies for trick-or-treaters or set them aglow by inserting fake burning candles. On eBay, you can find a festive gourd among the large patch of new and used pumpkins, so you need not trek to the fields to get the perfect one.
