Link Love: No Carve Pumpkin Decorations

Whether you’re living with little kids or you just like your pumpkins to last a little longer in the fall, these no carve pumpkin ideas are great for Halloween and beyond!

The great thing about not carving your pumpkins is that they can be displayed outdoors and indoors.  They last much longer than carved pumpkins and open the door for endless possibilities for crafty minds of all ages.  You could also use fake pumpkins so they’ll last year after year!

I love these Bedazzled Pumpkins.  They’re perfectly classy for Halloween parties and even weddings!  You could paint a few of them white for an elegant and sparkly black and white party.  This is a great project for kids since there’s no carving involved.

For the more advanced crafter, this Owl Pumpkin is a great project to have on display in the fall.  He can sit outside your home and guard your house or you can keep him inside to set the mood for Halloween!

    One year, when I was little my brother and I wanted to carve our own pumpkins. Everywhere you go and every television show and movie has these elegantly designed carved pumpkins and they looked so cool. So my mom caved in and bought us basic carving sets and we set out to make our own awesome pumpkins. Needless to say they ended up being a disaster. Pitting the pumpkins was a mess and the actual carving turned out horribly. That was the last year we ever tried to carve our own pumpkins. I’m sure most people feel the same way as I do about carving pumpkins and these suggestions are excellent. I wish I had these when I was younger!
