10 Non Carving Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

I put together a list of 10 Non Carving Pumpkin Decorating Ideas because here in the desert our pumpkins don’t last very once you carve them.  So instead why not decorate your pumpkins without carving them.

Non Carving Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Here are 10 sites I found that I just love their non carving pumpkin decorating ideas.

Budget Wise Home – Use a few items around your yard and transform these no carve pumpkins into creepy crawlers. 

Alpha Mom — This idea really brings the pumpkin to “life”.

Swell Designer – Have loose and broken crayons around the house.  Grab those and create a masterpiece pumpkin.

Smith Family AZ – My daughter loves cheetah print — I’m posting this one especially for her.  Using tissue paper to create this design really opens up the possibilities of future design ideas.

If you live in warmer weather areas, you may want to consider a temporary design and carve your pumpkin the closer you get to Halloween.  This way you can get two uses out of your pumpkin.
