These Brilliant No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas Make Halloween Easy

No knife, no mess. 🔪🎃

From start to finish, jack-o’-lanterns are super fun to make, even if you’re making one look like Donald Trump. But they’re messy (especially Trumpkins)! Why not switch it up this year using a few tricks from Southern Living that save you from scooping out a single sticky seed? These are the no-carve pumpkins that keep your hands and kitchen clean.

In the video above, see how they use decoupage to turn a pumpkin into a pile of leaves, or nails and string to weave up a bat-kin. With just a few strokes of a paintbrush or spray can, a pumpkin becomes a blank canvas, ready for the limits of your imagination.

Nothing but treats here.
