Quick and Easy No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas
We are already within days of Halloween but there's still time to create cute & creative last minute yard displays with the kids. This collection of fun and easy ideas I've found will certainly get your family in the Halloween spirit. Most of the supplies you will need can be found at Jo-Ann Fabrics and Craft stores and Target. In addition, I suggest shopping at 99 cent store and Dollar Tree for halloween specialties before hand to save a few dollars.
Supply lists will vary depending on which pumpkin you select, but here's a list of some of the things you may need:
-Water-based Paint Sharpies
-Stencils (Bats, Snakes, Lizards, Bugs, Witches etc.)
-Paint Brushes (in a variety of sizes)
-Crafting Glue Gun
These colorful pumkins are giving me Easter egg vibes. They will put a spin on the mood of the holiday and brighten up your yard. The use of narrow paint brushes and stencils will be essential in trying to match the detail seen above. Circle construction paper cutouts will complete the display.
"Swarm of Bats"
Simple enough and still eye-catching, this is a great one for the kids. It's as simple as painting the stem black and gluing on the bat cutouts. Be sure to mix and match this idea with a couple others spooky-themed pumkins.
These minion pumpkins are a little more on the advanced side but who's aiming for perfection anyhow? Make use of jar lids for the eyes, you'll also need white, yellow, blue, and black acrylic paints, as well as a variety of paint brush sizes including a cats tounge for details.
Another good idea that is so simple you may have the suplies lying around. For best results use a glue gun opposed to an everyday adhesive. Pairing this with a couple more pumkins with other spooky phrases you come up with will complete the look.
Everyone remembers candy corn, this Halloween tradition is one that is so old it takes most adults back to childhood. You only need yellow and white spray paint to give new life to those weird, long shaped pumkins no one ever chooses.
Sci-fi junkies and lovers of all things occult alike will love this eerie Halloween display. Not too difficult, you will need black and green acryilic paint, circle foam cutouts (in red, yellow, black and, white), glue, fuzzy wire, and googly eyes.
This one is so easy it can be done as late as Haloween day. You just need white thumb tacks, fake spider webs, and a black sharpie to draw in the eyes and mouth. Be sure to practice safety when working with children.
Another very cool yet surprisingly simple idea that kids will love. You just need blue and black acrylic paint, white foam balls, light brown construction paper, glue, scissors, and a black sharpie to draw in the eyes and chocolate chips.
This one will take a little more patience and time but the outcome is just a treasure to lovers of all things gold such as myself! You just need a couple 100 count gold thumb tack packs and gold spray paint. The layering effect can be accomplished by lining two side by side rows as close as possible from top to bottom then another row of tacks between those two filling in the gaps. Repeat untill completely covered and voila!
