Love decorating pumpkins but hate making a mess? Check out these no-carve pumpkin decorating ideas that will leave your house festive without the mess of carving!

Every year, I come across the same problem in the fall. I want to decorate lots of pumpkins for Halloween, but I don’t want a mess on my hands. Plus, considering that I am not a fan of pumpkins as part of my diet, I feel like scooping out the seeds and flesh is such a waste of food.

Thank goodness that there are so many easy no-carve pumpkin decorating ideas out there! Some of these are genuinely creative beyond my imagination. You don’t even need to use a real pumpkin – just a cheap craft store pumpkin will do.

I hope you get to try at least some of these no-carve pumpkin decorating ideas this fall with your kids. I am especially excited about the glow in the dark one!
