The No-Carve Pumpkin

A few days ago, I started remodeling my kitchen. Needless to say, my life (including house, dogs, clothes, furniture) is all a bit of a complete mess. So, when thinking of creating some pumpkin themed decor for Halloween next week, I'm wondering what's stylish but also super easy? Here are some ideas found around the web...

I first saw this chalkboard paint how-to on my favorite blog, Swiss Miss- which they found on Fair Goods. Here's the tutorial, which can be easy or elaborate...

 

This idea I love- if you have washi tape on hand, create an overlapping plaid pattern on your favorite pumpkin. As they share on the Good Housekeeping site, "Becuase you aren't cutting them, the pumpkins stay fresh much longer- working as a centerpiece throughout the fall." 

And if you have a fun design in your washi tape collection- like houndstooth, you can cover your entire pumpkin with it. 

Or, if you're patient, try your hand at decoupage. This may be my no-carve pumpkin of choice but I have a feeling I couldn't get it to look even half as good as these. But- I like the inspiration. It's stylish and fun, and helps me forget I'm surrounded by dust...
