13 No Carve Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Spread the love

‘Tis the weekend to be decorating! Next week is Halloween and I’ve been collecting no carve pumpkin decorating ideas from fellow creatives to come up with the perfect activity for the kids this weekend. We’ll probably carve too but the kids love to paint and stick at the moment so I wanted some alternative crafting ideas for Halloween.

13 No Carve Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

I’ve picked 13 no carve pumpkin decorating ideas because it’s the most spooky number I could think of. Ten of these pumpkins are actual pumpkins, while the final three are crafty artificial pumpkins which I just love. It’s been a while since I crocheted but the pumpkins featured near the end are making me want to get back into it!
