Year after year we try our best to carve pumpkins for Halloween, but more often than not, it doesn’t go as planned. Carving pumpkins takes lots of strength, patience, and skill and we don’t always have the time to create them. These no-carve pumpkins are just as festive and they don’t require any carving tools, making them family friendly. They’re super easy to make and they’ll put you in the spooky spirit this Halloween.

Lace Pumpkin

All you need for lace pumpkins are sheer stockings and place the pumpkin in the accessory and cover it with spray paint to create a lace design. It has a similar effect to carving, but it’s much less effort.

Bejeweled Pumpkin

Sketch a design with chalk and then go over it with whatever jewels or rhinestones you have lying around. Create fangs, pointy eyes, and other fun, spooky designs.

Chalk-Painted Pumpkins

Need another thing to do with chalk paint? Why not make chalk-painted pumpkins which are super trendy and eye-catching.

Glitter Pumpkins

Glitter makes everything better and to create glitter pumpkins, coat the pumpkin in paint and then create designs with glitter. You can make polka dots, stars, hearts—pretty much whatever your heart desires.

Chinoiserie Pumpkins

Chinoiserie pumpkins come together with laser-cut stencils and craft paint. They look really intricate, but they couldn’t be easier to create.
