I’ve put together a list of 15 easy no carve pumpkin decorating ideas for those of us who want to create a beautiful looking pumpkin for Halloween, but don’t want to risk trying to carve!

Hands up who has either the spare time or the will to carve an amazing pumpkin amongst all the other weekly busy mother tasks?

No, me neither!

I love seeing beautifully carved pumpkins, but I just can’t get it together to create one.

Seriously, I can barely manage a toothless grin and some splodgy eyes without almost slicing one of my fingers off each Halloween.

Plus  I’m always put to shame by the neighbours.

One neighbour makes models for major movies.

The other neighbour studied fine art!!

Both of them produce fantastic carved pumpkins every Halloween.

I’ve got a pumpkin carving kit but even with the best kit in the world, I am not convinced my pumpkins won’t look like scary in all the wrong kind of ways.

So, I have been on the hunt for truly simple ways we can decorate our pumpkin this year.

Ways that we can create something amazing with no carving at all.

I’ve put a list together to share with you – because lists is what I do!!

Each no carve pumpkin decorating idea is super quick, super easy. Which means you’ll have plenty of time to focus on all the other aspects of what Halloween entails, like planning the Halloween food, trick or treat ideas and generally planning a brilliant party for Halloween.

The kind of pumpkin decorating that just can’t go wrong.

Loved this post, and it's perfect for the non crafters like me! The pink and orange polka dot one is my fave, and know my girls will adore it :) Thanks so much for sharing with #DiffLinky

I can't believe how clever some of these things are! The puff paint ones are intense. Pinning for sure. Stopping by from two cup Tuesday.

Thanks for this very interesting post! i am one of those "talentless" carver who can't carve pumpkins from scratch so these no-carve pumpkin carving ideas are pretty handy for me. I'm gonna try some of them this year. Happy Halloween!

So glad it is not just me who is rubbish at carving :-) We have had so much fun with these no carve ideas and it is great that they last longer uncarved. Happy Halloween!!
