Jamie Hoover, Staff Writer

With the leaves changing color and the weather cooling off we can only assume one thing, it’s Fall! So, with the start of fall, the craze to start carving pumpkins begins. Carving pumpkins is so much fun to do with your family and friends but can kind of be a let down when you work so hard on a design, and it comes out looking nothing like how you imagined. So, since actually carving a pumpkin can be a little tricky I thought I’d share some easy ideas that you can use to decorate your pumpkin.

If you’re not interested in pulling out your knives, painting is a really fun alternative! When using paint you can pretty much put whatever you want on your pumpkin such as, polka dots, stripes, cartoon characters, faces, and even Halloween sayings like “boo” or “trick or treat”. Painting is really simple and can look just as good as if you carved your pumpkin.

Another way to be creative is to use ribbon and wrap it around the pumpkin into cool designs. This is so simple and can look really cute to decorate your room with. This next idea can be kind of messy, but will look super cool when you’re finished. All you need is glue and glitter! Just coat your pumpkin in glue and roll it in glitter, then you’re done! So, for this upcoming Halloween if you don’t want to put in all the effort in actually carving a pumpkin try some of these easy decorating ideas.
