So Halloween is just two days away and you haven’t done a thing about those plain pumpkins on your front porch? No problem-o! Here are three easy, no-carve pumpkins that you can whip up in no time.
1. Picasso Pumpkin with Painter’s Tape
After cutting out eyes, a nose, and mouth with painter’s tape, I let my dude go to town with kid’s paint so that he could create his own master piece. He was quite proud of himself. Here he is studying which brush to use first:
Stencil pouncer sponges in different sizes are an easy way to create perfect polka-dots on your pumpkins. I used the Martha Stewart set.
String + left-over spider silhouettes from the feather boa wreath I shared yesterday = a slightly creepy pumpkin. Use hot glue to attach the string in a few key places, and stick the spiders on with the same glue or tape.
I love the pumpkin carving tradition but hate the mess and time it takes. We’ll definitely carve one, and my little girl will make her mark on her own pumpkin, but I’m quite glad we incorporated some no-carve versions this year.
Did you try any no-carve pumpkins this year? If you blogged about them, share your links in the comments!
