8 No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas
Step aside Jack-o-Lanterns!
Fall is in the air and you know what that means – pumpkins galore! Pumpkins are pretty much the universal symbol of fall and we can’t get enough of them. We’ve all heard of pumpkin carving and we can’t deny that desire to have the spookiest porch on the block decked out with Jack-o-Lanterns, but we also know what happens shortly after those pumpkins are carved – they turn into rotten messes and start to smell pretty bad. That’s why we’re here to start a new tradition! There are tons of ways to decorate your pumpkins that don’t involve any knives or carving, and the best part is they’ll last much longer too (side note: they also require much less artistic talent than is required for pumpkin carving, and if that isn’t enough to steer you away from carving Jack-o-Lanterns then we don’t know what is!)
