Classic jack-o-lanterns are great, but no-carve pumpkins have a special place in our hearts. Whether it’s paint, decoupage, glitter, or leaves there are lots of fun ways to decorate pumpkins without actually cutting into them! Not only is it a fun way to add some color to your Halloween decor, they’ll also last so much longer.
DIY Fingerprint Art Pumpkins
If you have little ones that aren’t quite old enough to carve or decorate pumpkins on their own yet, these thumbprint pumpkins are a great option. We used white pumpkins for this technique because they’re the perfect blank canvas.
Leaf Art Pumpkins
Collect orange leaves from your yard while they’re still soft and freshly fallen and then with just a pair of scissors and a glue stick, create a mini pumpkin patch on your pumpkins!
