This Halloween, mix it up a little. If you’re tired of the mess and labor involved with carving pumpkins year after year, we’ve got good news for you. Here are a few easy ways to make those pumpkins pop without carving your days away.

Paint a Pumpkin

Pick up a few cans of paint, some brushes and maybe a stencil or two. Then gather the kids and get down to business! See who can come up with the most creative, creepy, or spooktastic design.

Pumpkin Planters
