Fun Ways to Decorate PumpkinsLooking for something different to do instead of carving your pumpkins this year? We compiled a list of other ways you can make your pumpkins gourd-eous.

 

Address Pumpkin: Cover your pumpkin in three layers of glow in the dark paint. Let it dry and then paint the number of your apartment inn black. You can view a tutorial here. The address pumpkin looks best when it has a couple of pumpkin friends. 

 

Donut Pumpkins: Turn your pumpkins into confections. This is a fun and easy painting project. Just don't eat them! Learn how to make them here.

 

Stocking Pumpkins: Want to skip the mess of carving AND painting? Buy some fun patterned stockings, put them on your pumpkin, tie it off with a fancy ribbon, and voila! Done. See how to do this project here.

 

Button Pumpkins: Do you have excess buttons in a drawer in your apartment? Put them to good use! You can use hot glue or hammer and small nails. Whatever you have on hand. Check out some examples here.

 

Ribbon Pumpkins: If you keep random buttons lying around the apartment, then there's a chance you have a stash of ribbon too. Break out the hot glue and place ribbons in the creases of the pumpkin. It's definitely OK to mix and match ribbons! Get some inspiration here.

 

Happy Halloween!
