The Halloween Pumpkin Uncarved

Updated on September 13, 2013

Festive Halloween Pumpkins Without Carving

Okay, maybe I'm a little lazy, but I love to find ways to decorate for Halloween without having to carve that pumpkin. I was delighted at the ideas I found from amazingly creative crafters. Each pumpkin decorating technique presented here is just the starting point for making your own original pumpkin creation. You'll find a picture of each pumpkin decorating idea with a link to the instructions. They're all quite simple, and you'll enjoy discovering new ways to make that Jack-o-lantern without the carving.


This first one is pretty obvious, but here is the link to the crafter: Martha Moments.

Polished Pumpkins & Gourds

We all know that pumpkins and gourds are just naturally beautiful, but look what happens when they are polished! Not only are they even more beautiful and elegant, but there are side benefits, like protecting from mold. Find out exactly what to use to clean and shine these elegant beauties at By Stephanie

Reverse Carving

This one had no instructions, but I just had to include it. It looks like the pumpkin is painted with several coats of thick glossy latex paint. When dry, use a stencil to remove the paint revealing the pumpkin inside. A very spooky, gothic effect.

Panty Hose Pumpkin

Pumpkins of the Night

I love this idea. Pumpkins dressed up in patterned panty hose! Super easy and dramatic pumpkin decorating. Also inexpensive if you have some old patterned hose to repurpose. I found this idea at

How easy and how fun. No instructions needed, but you can find this and many more pumpkin decorating ideas at Better Homes & Gardens Pumpkin Decorating pages.

The Basic Little Black Pumpkin

I love these black pumpkins. Apparently these were being prepped for another project, but don't you love them just the way they are? An Enchanted Cottage

Photo Display Pumpkins

This is actually the project the black pumpkins above were being prepped for. Same web site: An Enchanted Cottage

Polka Dot Pumpkin

Just plain fun for anyone young or old in any color scheme. Fave Crafts

Pumpkin Message Board

Chalkboard paint your pumpkin. Change the message, post a menu, or just plain Boo!

At Home

Boo! That's it.

Boo!  That's it.
Boo! That's it.

Country Bumpkin Pumpkins

Some of these country pumpkins are sporting gunny sacks. Any fabric will create something unique for your home. For something elegant, try retired lingerie with glitter or sequins and ribbon.

Glitzy Blingy Pumpkins

Glittery pumpkins will really shine at night reflecting off candles or porch lights. Complete tutorial for these is at A Glimpse Inside

Stenciled Pumpkins

So easy and so fun. Stencils can be recruited from everyday household items, or you can purchase some like these. How-to from Homemade Simple

Lacy Punctured Pumpkins

Okay, so these are very close to carving, the thing I was avoiding. But to me they're easier. I love the look of these, especially with the exotic pumpkin varieties in so many nontraditional colors. I couldn't resist including them. Yes, you still have to gut and clean the pumpkin, but using woodworking tools and punching out holes doesn't require the control you need with a sharp knive cutting through thick pumpkin skin. Pumpkins just run when they see me coming with a knife.

These are from, who else but Martha Stewart!

Thanks for visiting. Happy Halloween!

      Refreshing lens with original ideas. My sister and family have yearly tradition of the fancy carving of their pumpkins. Too dangerous for the young grand kids to do. But several of the ideas that you show can be done with the help of grand kids. I'm going to email your url to her. Especially as she sews a lot and has interesting ribbons she could use. Thanks for your neat lens.

      I love your collection of ideas you've found. There are so many levels of handiness needed to complete one. Being one to compost the aged pumpkins we use I'd have to opt out of any of the ideas used with glitter & paint products. But this leaves other ideas more environmental friendly. Lovely lens and congrats!

      I love these! Especially the ones I still cook after Halloween and make pumpkin puree to freeze for pumpkin pie. The net stockings are brilliant!

      Cool! Carved pumpkins don't last long here in Florida due to the heat and humidity, so I'm always looking for fun ways to decorate them without carving. Thanks for all the great ideas!
