Knives are scary

I’m a mom… and my internal safety alarm goes off randomly. When big sharp knives are involved I always have this BIG flashing red light go off in my head. DANGER! DANGER!

Yes, there are some safety tips you can follow… but most of the carving will need to be handled by mom and dad.



Here are Four Ways you can Decorate a Pumpkin WITHOUT carving!


1 – Paint!

When my girls were younger, this is the option we chose! It was fun, they got messy… but it was lots of fun to see what they created their painted pumpkins!

2- Stickers

Many moms have started using cute sticker sets to decorate their pumpkins

3 – Felt

This year, we used felt to decorate our pumpkin! It was really fun to draw out the face on the felt and then hot glue the pieces in place.



4 – Push in or Sticks


There are a lot of really cute “Push in” decorations or stick decorations that you push into your pumpkin to bring it to life.


– Plus, you can Melt Crayons on your pumpkin too!


However you decorate your pumpkin remember that you are creating lasting memories your family will cherish forever!
