7 No-Carve Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Decorating Pumpkin DIY CraftI just love pumpkins! My favorite season is upon us, and with it comes Halloween, providing lots of opportunities for creative holiday recipes and crafts. Making a jack-o-lanterns is the traditional way to decorate a pumpkin, but I'm not great at carving.

Plus, carving makes pumpkins rot quickly, and when you don't carve kids can get in on the crafting fun! To  keep your pumpkins around longer this season, decorate them in a way that requires no carving.  Here are a few stylish and fun ideas to inspire you. Follow the links to read the full tutorials:
