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?

I think I would do these ideas on fake pumpkins so I could use them every year. I don't enjoy pumpkin carving but the kids love it and the roasted seeds.

All our kids are grown and gone, but we still do it. And we don't even have trick-or-treaters! haha

I love these ideas!!!!

I feel good about pumpkin carving but I find it hard to get into the swing of it.

CUTE! Thanks for the ideas!

I hate how fast carved pumkins start to wither and mold. My boys painted these 2 years ago (I outlined, they colored in the lines).
