5 Spooktacular Pumpkin Decorating Ideas
When the month of October rolls around, there's nothing we love more than visiting our local pumpkin patch and plucking a few plump jack-o'-lanterns to bring home with us and get in the fall spirit! In celebration of National Pumpkin Day on October 26, we're sharing five fun, easy, and family-friendly ways to decorate pumpkins and create spooktacular decor for Halloween!
1. Melted Crayon Pumpkin
We love this cool, modern take on decorating pumpkins using melted crayons—no carving required! This hands-on activity is fun for kids and adults, and doesn't take much time to complete. Get the full DIY here.
2. Floral Pumpkin
This blooming jack-o'-lantern is easy to create and will add a dose of style to any Halloween soiree! Just spray paint your pumpkin the color of your choice, drill some small holes in a swag pattern across the front, and insert a few fresh blooms. Spritz the blooms with water to keep them hydrated.

5. Letterboard Pumpkin
Why not have your pumpkin double as a letterboard this fall season? We love this clever pumpkin decorating idea from a Girl and a Glue Gun. Get her DIY here.
