It’s the beginning of October and for many, this is without a doubt their favorite month of the year. The weather has transitioned into Autumn, the leaves begin to change colors, the weather starts to cool down a bit, and most importantly, the count down to Halloween begins!
I wanted to take a moment and share 10 ideas for decorating pumpkins that does NOT involve cutting into them at all. I’ve seen some pretty amazing things that professional pumpkin carvers can do, but I really like not having to carve into them. Sure, there is something traditional about laying out the newspaper, slicing it open, scooping out all the slimy guts, then having to shoo away the pet who wants to inspect it, while monitoring the kids so they don’t cut off a finger, while making sure seeds don’t go flying around the kitchen… you get the idea.
So here are 10 pumpkin decorating ideas that do not involving cutting the pumpkin. Feel free to share links to any sources you have too.
