no carve pumpkin

Less than a week until Halloween…and to celebrate {and prepare}, today’s post is all about pumpkins. We plan to carve pumpkins this week because my son loves it and it’s fun, but if it were up to me, I think I’d leave the knife out of it, and stick to non-carved pumpkin decor.

1. Read the full tutorial of how to create Witches Legs on your pumpkin at Better Homes and Gardens

2. Spray paint pumpkins white and wrap lengths of grapevine around and up and down the pumpkin in different patterns for a rustic pumpkin. Hold on to this idea for Thanksgiving as well.

3. With some glue, a jar of black buttons and an elegant bow, you will have a button pumpkin with a boo-tiful message in no time.

4. Even pumpkins like a little bling. Glue rhinestones and glitter on your pumpkin and top it off with a metallic spider friend.  
5. Add a band of beans around pumpkins or candles like the talented folks at HGTV show you how to do here. This is a great addition to a Thanksgiving tablescape too.
6. Use metallic spray paint for glowing gourds. Paint a pumpkin silver or gold in its entirety or add a metallic pattern using tape or stickers and spray paint.
7. For a no-fuss centerpiece with a rustic feel, Good Housekeeping recommends pumpkins, a little double-sided take and patterned ribbon in a wooden bowl.
8. For that ultimate glam pumpkin, cover it with black lace. BHG gives you the easy how-to tips here.
