No Carving Halloween Pumpkin Decorating – DIY Crafts

ID-10038558Don’t want all the mess of carving a pumpkin this year? Have fun with the entire family by painting, adding decals and more for a funny or scary pumpkin.

Pick Your Pumpkin

Pumpkins are easy to get this time of year, whether it is a fresh found in grocery stores to farmers market. You could also opt to get a faux pumpkin and use it year after year. Check out your local craft stores for those.

Using Paint and Markers

For both the fresh pumpkin and the faux pumpkins, acrylic paint works best. Paint the entire pumpkin or just use the paint for a scary face or cartoon style. Use different size brushes and colors . You could also use markers either of the pumpkins and the best ones are Sharpies. The “Sharpie Markers”are able to stand up to the layer of wax that is on the fresh pumpkins.

Head on over to ThePumpkinLaday.com and choose from 700 Free Carving Patterns. While these can be used to draw on the pumpkin and then carve, why not trace and then paint or use markers to make the Halloween scene.

Skip The Paint – Go With Decals

For a fun and fast way to decorate your pumpkins, add decals and stickers. Sold in Craft stores.

Adding the Extra’s

Ribbons, hats, wigs and fuzzy accents bring out the creativity for your pumpkin. You could use yarn for hair, ribbon for bow ties and more.

Wishing you a Fun and Safe Halloween
