Pumpkins are one of the greatest parts of Halloween! They’re so much fun to decorate, carve and let’s not get started on all the yummy pumpkins seed you can eat! We are big fans of the traditional pumpkin carving, it’s kind of a Halloween must, but sometimes you want to try a new approach and there’s nothing wrong with that. Mixing it up a little bit makes life fun! In this post we’re looking at 3 different ways to decorate your pumpkin this Halloween and we’re pretty excited to see what everyone comes up with season! So scroll down and get the creative juices flowing!
1. Carve without carving.
Carve without carving? Yes, you read that right. We’re talking about carving into the surface and taking a little bit of it off the top. Pick out a fun design and go at it!
2. Slap some stickers!
Not looking to make a mess this Halloween season? What about using stickers? Put your favorite Halloween expressions or poems on your pumpkins! Maybe even channel your inner Edgar Allen Poe this season. The darker the better!
3. Lace up
Looking to get fancy this Halloween? Then cover those pumpkins in lace! Cover them in fun, lacy patterns to give them a fantastic and festive look! Want to ramp it up? Try painting the pumpkins first, like pictured above!

Halloween is right around the corner, so why not have some fun this weekend with the family? It’s time to get ready for crafts! We found two crafts that we thought would be great for the family, especially the kids! The first project is from Pretty Handy Girl and shows you how to make some fun and decorative pumpkins using fabric and toilet paper. These are great for Halloween decor and home decor. The best part is they can easily be used for Thanksgiving decorations as well. They’re pretty easy to make and look great! Check them out here!
The second project we found will give your house that spooky, festive look on Halloween night. This project is brought to us by eighteen25. This is another simple halloween project that only requires a few milk jugs, a marker, a string of Christmas lights and some creative drawing. Grab some markers and let the kids go to town! They’ll be excited to put them outside and when Halloween night comes the neighbors will know you’re ready for some trick-or-treaters. Get the guide by going here!
Have some family fun this weekend and give yourself those last minute Halloween decorations! Have fun and happy friday!
