Do you love Halloween as much as we do? Are you excited for pumpkin carving and apple cider? Well get even more excited because we’re calling all pumpkin decorating fanatics to put on your thinking caps and gather your best pumpkin carving designs and pumpkin decorating ideas and enter our Pumpkinpalooza pumpkin decorating contest!
We want to see your most creative pumpkin decorating ideas! Not planning on carving a real pumpkin this year? That’s not a problem because we want to see you use all your crafty skills and that includes pumpkin decorating without carving. So put on your thinking caps and get out the scissors, Mod Podge, yarn, or paint and get crafty!
We’ve pulled together an amazing prize package and a panel of craft-lebrity judges to help us pick the winner in our pumpkin decorating contest! After submissions are over, your pumpkin will be judged by Kathy Cano-Murillo aka The Crafty Chica, Mark Montano, and Margot Potter, a Craft Wars alumni.
The judges will be picking the top 10 pumpkin designs and then YOU, our readers, will be choosing the winners. So be sure to check back and vote on your favorite or get your friends to vote if you’re in the finals!
