No Carve Pumpkins For Grown Ups

I thought you might enjoy some “no carve” pumpkin craft and decorating ideas. Some of us either don’t want to deal with the mess or simply are looking for a little something different. A grown up version is always fun!
The gold pumpkins are great because I use them for Thanksgiving decorating too. Place them on your fireplace mantel, on your table, or on your porch.
Decorate a pumpkin with sparkles, patterns, embellishments,designs. Use a dry erase marker to draw your pattern then just paint or hot glue your way to a grown up pumpkin. Use candies, beads,ribbon,buttons, etc. and adhere them to your pumpkins. I hope you find these ideas fun, they’re all very easy to do and only require a few supplies and patience. Remember if you are using paint to create, make sure you work in a well ventilated area.
What You Need
Spray Paint
Hot glue /glue gun
Dry erase marker
Candy, Sequins, beads, brick a brack, for decorating
Clean up supplies, newspaper, cloth, sponge.
Have Fun!You can always include the kids too ( wink)

Great ideas. I have my very first pumpkin growing in my yard and it's pretty small. Maybe I'll use one of your ideas. Thanks.

Some people are just down right CREATIVE. You are definitely one of those. What a neat idea. I have to show my daughter.

I'm only using "adult pumpkins" now too. And, like you, I have some bronzed ones I use through Thanksgiving. I did buy one large real pumpkin to put by the front door with my scarecrows. I hope it last until Halloween. We still get sooo much sun aimed right at our front door.

These are great ideas! We don't have a single kid in even the extended family younger than 18. A "grown up" craft sounds right up my alley.
