Put. Down. The. Knife.
I’ve found the best no carve, painted pumpkins that Pinterest has to offer. No need to get covered in pumpkin innards, or wrestle the kids for the knife. Just get out the paint, glitter & Sharpies and have a go at some of these.
I’m really into metallics at the mo, we’re even introducing copper into our newly decorated kitchen so metallic painted pumpkins really caught my eye. I’m loving the Gold Confetti Pumpkins from Made In A Day
Or how about these stunning Copper Herringbone Pumpkins by Lovely Indeed
These Modern Metallic Pumpkins from D.D.D make a stunning centrepiece
And you’ve got to love some gold calligraphy. LH Calligraphy has some stunning designs for Calligraphy Pumpkins over on her Etsy shop.
How about some Day of the Dead inspired pumpkins. I’m loving this pearl finish from Vampy Varnish.
Or how about this brightly coloured one from Artelexis, with a detailed how to.
If Sugar Skulls are not your thing then how about a bit of monochrome, there’s some really fun and gorgeous designs.
How cute is this painted Jack O’ Totem from HGTV, pretty easy too using some paint and a marker pen!
These Graffiti/Calligraphy style monochrome pumpkins from Alisa Burke are gorgeous, and again really easy to do.
Or the BOO Painted Pumpkin from The Sweet Occasion. I love this one.
This spider web pumpkin is so simple, the kids could make this one themselves
Or invite the neighbours kids to come knocking with a set of Trick or Treat pumpkins
If you want to go for something a bit more fun there’s something out there for you too.
These colourful Confetti Pumkpins from Cloudy Day Gray make an impact and the kids would love sticking the confetti on.
These Melted Crayon Pumpkins from Crafty Morning are genious! Pop over to see exactly how they are made.
Or how about a Princess theme with a Cinderella Pumpkin from Craft Smile
One of my absolute fav’s, and one that I think I’ll be trying out this year is these gorgeous ‘pun-kins’ from Studio DIY.
‘Witch’ one of your favourite? Will you be carving or painting your pumpkins this year?
