Pumpkin decorations, carving kit NOT needed!

My solution to pumpkin decorations

without having to use a carving kit.


    PUMPKINS, pumpkin decorating
Pumpkin decorations have been flying around Pinterest for weeks and local retail stores have Christmas displays on their main isles....calm down retailers!! Holy Holiday, one at a time, please!

Our front porch...the one with a few half dead mums and a couple of plain pumpkins needed some *life! And my solution was sooooo simple., pumpkin decorating

This past weekend we took off to the pumpkin patch to hunt down a select 359 pumpkins to decorate! Ok, it wasn't really 359 pumpkins it was only 15 but  hubby the man who had to carry them all would probably argue it was 359.

Now, really, it's too early to carve these beautiful Orange Balls. 
So we decided to {keep it simple} and get creative with Sharpie Markers and Pens
You can easily create art on your pumpkin -freehand or print-out fonts and trace!, pumpkins

If you're wondering "what if it rains" I've got you covered, it's been tested by 2 days of repeated rainfall. Nothing happens. No smearing, no disappearing., pumpkin, rain

Once you see how easy and fun this project is, you'll keep searching for more possibilities! Like, flower pots...., pumpkin, flower pot

And in the days closer to Halloween, when all the ghouls and ghosts come out to play, we'll carve our pumpkins and light the porch to keep them away! But for now we'll admire these beauties., pumpkins

Do your neighbors a favor. Get the kids involved. Decorate one side of your pumpkin and when Halloween nears carve the other side! 

I mean, really, who wants a rotting pumpkin on their front porch?

Like this idea? Be sure to do it and Pin It!
Pin It!
