Make a dramatic change from the classic orange pumpkin with a bit of black and silver spray paint. Grab some big pumpkins for your doorway and the smaller pumpkins for a table centerpiece. The black and silver gives a modern, creepy look to the average pumpkin.
For a black matte look, try some chalkboard paint, available at most paint and home improvement stores, like Home Depot.
