10 non-carving decorative ideas for your pumpkin!

Hey readers,

Looking for simple and effective pumpkin decorating ideas without carving then look no further as I have 10 ideas to get you feeling creative. 

10 non-carving decorative ideas for your pumpkin!  

1. Black. 

A cute idea from Lovely Indeed with small pumpkins is to paint black and write words such as boo, or even someone's name to give a personal touch. What is even better is you don't have to carve the pumpkin so super easy to do at home.

2. Confetti. 

Check out these confetti pumpkins by Mod Podge Rocks which are perfect for a Halloween party decoration perfect for children, no glue gun and uses modge podge which is suitable to use with children.

3. Mummy.

A simple but this idea looks really good are these mummy pumpkins. All you need is a cheesecloth, a glue gun, and googly eyes. Check out Mother's Niche who tells you step by step how to make this masterpiece. 

4. Dotty.

Go dotty with this pumpkin and all you need is a black sharpie and draw dots all over the pumpkin. 

5. Flirty.

This next idea comes from Hadley Court with this flirty pumpkin. You need to draw some eyelashes with a sharpie pen and spray paint the stork with glittery silver paint and there you have a fun pumpkin on your hands. 

6. Witch.

Inspired by The Craft Patch with this spooktacular idea with simply getting the old black sharpie out draw eyes and put a witch hat on, boom no stress!

7. Eyes on you. 

A very straightforward idea you paint the pumpkin black, then get different shaped googly eyes and glue them onto the pumpkin and you have this spooky pumpkin. 

8.  White.

Idea from Oopsey Daisy Blog where you either buy a white pumpkin or spray paint the pumpkin white. Then buy a spider jewel sticker and place it on the pumpkin. Next, you will need some black jewels you can stick on above the spider to indicate it's a trail.

9. Jack Skellington. 

Spray paint the pumpkin white and then paint the stork black. Next, get the trusted black sharpie pen and drawn the big circles for the eyes, little ones for the nose, and then copy the mouth. There you have your own Jack from Nightmare Before Christmas. 

10. Gold. 

A simple but effective one is to spray paint your pumpkin with gold spray paint and looks really effective I think.

  1. I've never actually thought of covering the pumpkin, how clever! #KCACOLS

  2. What fun ideas. I love the confetti one's and the mummy one is so cute. x

  3. So much easier and yet much prettier than the time-consuming carving! Great ideas.

  4. When my sons were small my husband used to carve our pumpkins in a traditional manner but I think your suggestions are much more fun and creative! #pocolo

  5. Brilliant ideas! I love the Jack Skellington and the witch, they are awesome. xx

  6. These are great!! Love the Kusama one and Jack Skellington. Alas for us, the carving is the craft fun, so not necessarily the finished product that matters #MischiefandMemories

  7. These are such fantastic ideas. We have melted wax crayons over pumpkins in previous years. That looked really effective too. #MischiefAndMemories

  8. Great ideas! I have only ever carved a pumpkin once and it was hard work! Thanks for linking up with #MischiefAndMemories (we are taking a break this week but hope to see you next Sunday)
