As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!
no carve pumpkins
Decorate Halloween pumpkins without carving! Not only is it easy (and not messy!), but your pumpkins will last longer! Our boys get so excited about Halloween each year that we typically buy our pumpkins in mid-September. So that we can enjoy our pumpkins longer, we outline a carving template on our pumpkins and then color them in with a black sharpie (we ran through two large ones last year).
Our neighbors and guests think they’re carved and marvel at how perfect they are. And since we can’t illuminate them from the inside, we use purple and orange lights all around our display so you can see our creations in the dark.
