Spice Up Your Pumpkin Decorating This Year

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 Hardware

Craft yourself a FrankenPumpkin using hardware. Just grab a few nuts, washers and screws and get creative with your scary creature. See how many different faces you can make!


Pumpkin Planters

Who says Halloween can’t be elegant? Create a pumpkin succulent planter for a classy take on a creepy tradition. Once Halloween is over, replant your succulents in a pot and keep them for the fall.


Dremel Carver

Still want to go traditional? Grab a Dremel Pumpkin Carver Kit and create your masterpiece with precision and ease. Carve out the traditional spooky face, or get creative with scary designs or cute patterns.
