my sons school is having a pumpkin decorating contest..the rules are no carvings. i have a couple of ideas but i'm wondering if anyone has any other ideas i could use..or crafts that would work good with the pumpkin?Answer Question
We are doing the same kind of thing with our Girl Scout troop, except they can carve them as well. I have thought of doing a scarecrow with a real hat, straw or raffia hair, the face painted on and a fake crow perched next to him. Another thought was to get one of the greenish pumpkins and wrap it in cheese cloth strips for a mummy. My thought was to carve out the eyes so they would glow, but you could also hot glue on a couple of the flat glass marbles or for a goofy mummy large wiggle eyes. Another fun idea would be the purple people eater - paint your pumpkin purple with a large cartroony eye and a big toothy grin. Use fun foam to cut out wings (make two sets and glue them together with skewers between them to insert into the sides of the pumpkin). For the horn I would look at the Halloween supplies, I'm sure you could find one there.
