6 Super Cool No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas

Posted by Gabrielle Blair

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!


How do you feel about pumpkin carving? Love the tradition or can't stand the mess?

Would you try any of these non carving options or something similiar?

I love the tradition of carving pumpkins, but I can't carve one to save my life.  I have fake pumpkins as decorations.

Super cute!
I carve the big pumpkins and paint the little ones, maybe I'll try and make some like these. ;)

Those are pretty cool pumpkins! I love them all. We usually carve them because my son who is 5 loves all that. So right now we are waiting for him to come back from seeing his grandparents in Miami to go pick out some pumpkins and carve them and put a little candle inside of the.

We love carving!! You can always clean up a mess but the memories and the kids having fun carving stays there. I would love to try the first option and make a more elaborate painting on a pumpkin, I usually do simple halloween themes on them.
