Every year when Halloween is approaching I get really excited for pumpkin carving. I get myself all psyched up, dream up beautiful designs, and make a day out of picking out the best ones before trucking them home with visions of masterpieces in my head.
And every year, when I'm finally finished hacking away and I step back to take in my creation, with orange goo all over me, I am met with a pumpkin that looks like a drunk two year old went to town on it with a pair of pliers.
And I don't even like pumpkin seeds.
So this year when I started seeing no-carve alternatives pop-up I was intrigued. A can of paint and a glue gun? Now those crafting projects I can handle. Even better, these gorgeous d.i.y's have upped Halloween's girly quotient by a million, and you know I'm on board with that!
So here's a little round-up of awesome pumpkin projects that don't require any carving (and only a couple even need scooping). Almost all of these would make gorgeous halloween party decor, so if you're throwing one I hope these'll help! Make sure to click on the links at the bottom of the post for step by step instructions for each and every one.
My faves are 2, 4 and 20. How about you?
