28 No Carve Pumpkin Ideas You and Your Family Will Love

Pumpkins make great autumn decorations, but sometimes carving them can be a hassle. It takes some special skills and a sharp knife that not everyone may be comfortable with. Also, if you are looking to make pumpkins with your family, you might not want to give a knife to your kids! Carving also makes a mess, which some people want to avoid. Especially if you’re decorating inside!

This is why no-carve pumpkin ideas are so great. Instead of pulling out the knife you can just pull out the paint! Pumpkin decorating doesn’t have to mean dangerous tools or a mess. Now, you and your family can decorate safely and have a great time.

No carve pumpkins are also very creative and attract great attention. Some of them are perfect for Halloween, while some are great for all season long! Be sure to check out these pumpkins and see if you find one that will suit your household. Most of these are DIY with tools you might have in your house right now. If not, a quick trip to the craft store will get you what you need.
