Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

With a lot of communities eliminating trick-or-treating & harvest events due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s time to look at doing crafts and such at home to still celebrate the holiday & have fun!

This article from WhatMomsLove.com showcases 70 different ways to decorate a pumpkin without carving. It’s safe for little ones (depending on the decoration method), creative, and down-right fun!

  • Nail Art Pumpkins. All you need are nails/brads (depending on the size of the pumpkin) and some colored embroidery floss. Push the nails/brads in randomly into your pumpkin, leaving a bit of the nail exposed. Tie one end of the floss to a nail and go to town winding it around the various nails into a pattern. Painting or purchasing white pumpkins make the designs pop!
  • Melted Crayon Pumpkins. This one requires using the stove and hot wax, so be careful. Purchase a bunch of dollar store crayons, unwrap them, melt on the stove in a pot you won’t be cooking in anymore, and pour the melted crayons over a small pumpkin. Makes for a drippy tie-dye look!
  • Glitter Pumpkins. Using a foam brush & some non-toxic glue, paint a design or the entire pumpkin and sprinkle colored glitter onto the tacky surface. Spray with hairspray to keep the glitter on!
  • Tissue Paper Pumpkins. Using a foam brush, some Mod Podge, and colored tissue paper, cut the paper into shapes or crumple & tear. Paint the Mod Podge onto the pumkin and layer the tissue paper adding a coat of Mod Podge after each layer!
  • Candy Pumpkins. Using glue (either craft glue or hot glue), use candy from the dollar store to create scenes or funny faces. Don’t let the kids eat the candy after it has been attached to the pumpkin, however.
