Skip the pumpkin guts this year. Pull out your paintbrushes and have your Pinterest boards at the ready. Friends, I present to you 14 of the prettiest, most pin-worthy pumpkins I have ever laid eyes on. Some are so beautiful, it's scary. Which is kind of the whole point of Halloween, no?

Complete Copper Crush

These copper-foiled pumpkins have surpassed any and all of my expectations for vegetable glamour. We are not worthy of their pumpkin beauty.

Indigo is the Way to Go

This group of gourds take the shibori trend to a whole new level of gorgeousness. I mean, can we all agree that these are pumpkin perfection? Dying. 

Floral + Fab

Free-handed, rosy blooms contrast against the navy background for an overall look that will instantly brighten even the gloomiest autumn day. 

Psyched for Spikes

These punky, spunky pumpkins are stand-outs from the rest of the basic pumpkins found on the neighbors' porches. Matte chalk paint makes for a totally cool backdrop to the gilded spikes.

Aztec Obsession

All you need is some chalk paint, black-and-white paint pens and a steady hand to create some seriously chic, aztec-patterned pumpkins.

Shock to the Heart

This trio sports bright pink and white hues to bring your fall tablescape back to life.

Green Gourds

These stormy lookers are effortlessly hip, am I right? Teach me your ways, little pumpkins!

Mod + Metallic

Who knew pumpkins could pull off this mod, minimalist look so well?

Southern Hospitality

A creamy, white pumpkin with a curly copper "hello" and an ivory magnolia bloom on top? Well, that's just the proper way to greet a season down South.

Just Creep It Real

These perky pumpkins are taking the words right out of our heads and spelling it out for the world to see. Just in the prettiest pastel form imaginable.

Porcelain or Pumpkin?

Mimic your favorite blue and white porcelain plates to keep that cohesive, fancy feeling all year long. 

Monogram Moment

A personalized painted pumpkin is a pretty way to dress up your porch without painting for hours on end. That's a win-win in my book.

Parade of Pastels

Pale and perfectly posh, this pumpkin patch will be the center of attention at your next fall fiesta.

Graphic + Ghoulish

Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me these pumpkins i-mmed-i-ate-ly! (No, but really.)
