No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas
- Decoupaged Paper Pumpkins - Among no carve pumpkin ideas, one of the easiest is to decoupage. Simply choose your paper of choice (tissue paper, newspaper, gift wrap, or what have you) and Mod Podge to complete.
- Chalkboard Pumpkins - Paint your pumpkin with chalkboard, allow to dry, and decorate with colored chalk. Change the decoration daily.
- Sharpie Zentangle Pumpkin - Grab your sharpie and use the zentangle technique to decorate your pumpkin. Zentangle is a pattern drawing technique that is easy enough for everyone to master. Use white pumpkins for a cool effect.
- Fabric Pumpkin - Instead of using paper and Mod Podge, use fabric instead. A Halloween patchwork pumpkin could be super cute.

- All the Trimmings - Grab a glue gun and fun fabric trims like rick rack, ribbon, lace, and more to make a sweet Halloween pumpkin.

- Stamped Pumpkin - Use stamps or acrylic stencils available at craft stores to create intricate patterns.
- Lace Doily Pumpkin - Either decoupage paper doilies on your pumpkins or use them as a stencil for spray painting on a delicate pattern.
