Once fall rolls around, I’m always looking for creative pumpkin ideas. I’m so excited to decorate for the season that it’s all I can do to keep from running out and buying every pumpkin I see! I just love the fall, and all of the traditions that come with it, including cozy sweaters, warm apple cider, and painted pumpkins decorating my front porch. Now that I’m a parent, I’m all about no-carve pumpkin ideas. There are so many very cool, very creative no-carve pumpkin decorating ideas that I’ve seen floating around. Plus, painting pumpkins with your kids is just plain fun…and you don’t have to worry about anyone getting hurt.

Here’s something else that I love about no-carve pumpkin ideas: They’re generally easy, fast, and, best of all, you don’t have to clean up those sticky pumpkin guts. Yes, paint is messy but nothing is as messy as the goop inside of pumpkins. So, I’ve rounding up some cool ideas to inspire you. From pumpkin painting ideas to pumpkin decorating ideas, here are some fun pumpkin ideas to try out stat. Have fun!
