Carving pumpkins is so 2013, am I right?
I kid. Carving up a real, live (dead) pumpkin will always hold a special place in my heart.
But as you’ve probably picked up from my DIY fake pumpkin decorating ideas, I just love a creative twist on a traditional idea.
Instead of a simple jack-o-lantern, you can paint a pumpkin any way you can imagine. This is such a great family craft idea to help the kids get into the Halloween spirit!
The nice thing about the ideas I’ve rounded up here is that you can use real pumpkins or fake ones.
