Need a fun pumpkin decorating idea? I love to be a bearer of good news because I’ve got a few ideas that require little time, fewer effort and little to no creativity. Some of these ideas require no carving at all, which means you can turn your pumpkin time into a safe family activity and have your little ones help you. From hand-painted Gothic gourds to cute and grinning pumpkin faces, trick-or-treaters will definitely get a true hoot out of these totally glorious pumpkins.
1. Black and white gourds
If orange isn’t your new black, then black and white combo may be something you need to try this year. Halloween isn’t about orange only. Besides, no carving required here. A little time, black and white paints and your imagination are all you need to create these devilishly angelic gourds. Just paint your regular pumpkins matte white and black. When dry, grab the paint pens to add some spooky pictures or symbols, or whatever for creepier effect. Your boring orange pumpkins will be done in less than 20 minutes, I bet.
