Carve Free Pumpkin Decorating Ideas
Give your jack-o’-lanterns a spooky (or pretty!) makeover with these easy DIYs.
Don’t forget our tips for carving the perfect pumpkin and you’ll have a festive group of gourds in no time.
Using hot glue, place strings of sequins going about halfway down the pumpkin.
Next, go horizontal with curved lines to complete the cobweb. A spider is optional but encouraged!
Mask out the eyes, mouth, nose, ears (and whiskers!) on an orange pumpkin with blue painter’s tape.
Cover the rest with black acrylic paint. Let dry, then remove the tape to reveal
Swarm of Bats
Here’s a batty idea: Cut a four-inch piece of black satin ribbon.
Tie a loose knot in the middle, then cut the ends to resemble wings. Attach with sewing pins.
Fresh blooms transform a hollowed-out gourd into a wow-worthy centerpiece.
Just hide a vase filled with water inside for a long-lasting display. Add extra glam with shiny gold tacks.
