Every October we have a tradition where my brother comes over and with my husband and the kids, they have a ton of fun carving pumpkins! Two is our limit when it comes to carving. However, we always end up with a lot more pumpkins because of school field trips to the pumpkin patch and excited family members who want to buy the kids pumpkins. So a couple years back, we tried some Pumpkin Decorating Ideas instead of carving.
The pumpkin decorating ideas were a hit and they don’t require carving! Last year we even had a fun Halloween party at our house where everyone got to get creative and make their own special pumpkin.
If you’re in the same boat as us when it comes to the number of pumpkins you end up with, or you prefer not carving them, here are 5 Fun Pumpkin Decorating Ideas for you to try.
5 Fun Pumpkin Decorating Ideas
1. Mummy Pumpkins
These are my favourite. The mummy pumpkins are cute and scary at the same time as well as being simple to make.
2. Emoji Pumpkins
We all love a good emoji 🙂 And here’s a great tutorial on how to turn your Halloween pumpkin into one!
3. Potato Head Pumpkins
If you have any of the Mr & Mrs Potato Head collections, use them to make a really simple and fun no carve jack-o-lantern.
4. Googly Eyed Pumpkins
This no-carve pumpkins will be super easy for the kids to do and it’s also kind of creepy for Halloween.
