A pumpkin display on your deck or front stoop isn’t complete unless it is centered around full and bushy cornstalks picked from the area’s surrounding cornfields.
It’s a must to have the cobs still on the stalks, and opened-up, for added dimension. Don’t forget to add a whimsical scarecrow to keep the squirrels and chipmunks from munching.
Try arranging the plants and pumpkins at different levels by using bales of straw strategically placed near the cornstalks. Carve some spooky faces and burn a candle in your pumpkin every night. Why wait until Halloween? Enjoy the season as long as you can.
Tie together a bunch of colorful Indian corn with broom corn to hang on your door in lieu of a wreath. It’s a nice change and makes an eye-catching display.
Toss various sizes and shapes of gourds and mini pumpkins together in an interesting basket or container. This can be placed by your display, or brought indoors for added color on your kitchen table or fireplace hearth.
