DIY No Carve Pumpkins

DIY No Carve Pumpkins

This year, we’ve traded in our carving tools for some spray paint and bedazzle. We wanted to up our arts and crafts game with our Halloween pumpkins so we steered away from the traditional pumpkin carving and went in a different direction. Overall we’re very pleased with our results!

Pumpkin #1: The Golden Disco Ball

What you need:

  • 1 large pumpkin
  • 4 sheets of thick golden metallic paper
  • A square cutter
  • Tacky glue
  • Metallic gold spray paint
Start out by laying some newspaper or any towel on the floor. Place your pumpkin on the paper and spray away!
With a paper towel, grab the stem of the pumpkin and lift the sides to spray the bottom.
Start cutting the metallic gold paper with your square cutter. The bigger the pumpkin, the more squares you will need. We went through 3 1/2 sheets on a medium sized pumpkin.
Start gluing the little squares onto your pumpkin. And don’t worry, the spray paint dries fast.
Just remember, it doesn’t have to look perfect. It will look amazing once it’s all covered in the gold squares!
The finished product! Let it stand alone in a sea of regular pumpkins or bedazzle them all… Up to you!

Pumpkin #2: W I C K E D

What you need:

  • 6 small or large pumpkins (whatever you please)
  • Silver push pins
  • Black spray paint

Once again, always lay newspaper or paper towels flat on the ground on which to place your pumpkins. Spray away!

Once dry, start pushing your push pins through the pumpkins to form the letters W, I, C, K, E & D on each pumpkin.
The finished product! Looks amazing alone…
Or incredibly festive with the golden pumpkin!
