6 Super Cool No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas

Posted by Gabrielle Blair on October 8, 2012 

Let's face it, carving pumpkins isn't the most convenient (or clean) of fall activities, so I thought it might be fun to gather together a few fun pumpkin decorating alternatives like those beautifully patterned painted pumpkins from Alisa Burke pictured above. 

Click through to see 5 more great ideas below!

White paint and rick rack, I'm so in. Love these pretties from Eddie Ross

 

Break out the ModPodge, it's time to get crazy! This fun idea was spotted over at Make and Takes

 

I love monograms and the idea of putting one on pumpkin is pure inspiration. See the tutorial here from The Butlers

 

Don't these remind you of Faberge eggs? So delicate and beautiful! See more here from Alisa Burke

 

A swarm of paper bats, ahhhh!! I think it looks so cool, what a great idea from No Biggie!

I like it, but so far with our son we've stuck to pumpkin painting

We love carving pumpkins. I do wish there was an easier way to clean them out and get the pumpkin seeds, but it's all worth it in the end :)

My 6 year old just carved his first pumpkin last night. He was overjoyed and very proud. Why would I complain about the mess?
