Getting Started with No Carve Pumpkins & Pumpkin Painting
No carving skills? No problem.
I’ve found 20 of the best no-carve pumpkin ideas and pumpkin painting ideas perfect for families.
Sometimes it’s best to keep the sharp knives out of reach or away all together, and without having to carve anything, you can still create festive, fun and silly Halloween decoration with paint, washi tape, goggly eyes, and other creative accessories.
Plus, no carve pumpkins last much longer than their carved counterparts, and don’t rot or collect bugs on your doorstep. Plus, no huge mess or big clean-up afterwards.
Give your jack-o-lanterns a fun makeover or spooky disguise with a few coats of paint, accessories, stencils, cut out shapes or supplies from your trip to the craft store.
The sky really is the limit with what you can create without carving a single pumpkin.
Painting pumpkins and using craft materials to decorate your jack-o-lantern, is a fun way to turn your average pumpkin into a Halloween masterpiece.
