18 Painted Pumpkins for A Carve-Free Halloween
Who said carving was the only way to decorate the pumpkins? There are times when we would rather skip the step that involves scraping out the mush inside of a pumpkin. We adore the silly faces that are skillfully carved into pumpkins, but let’s face it, painting is way easier. Painted pumpkins are eye-catching, delicate, and can make a bolder statement than carved pumpkins. We gathered an array of painted pumpkin ideas that truly capture the Halloween spirit. From brightly colored designs to notable neutrals, we have just what you need for a carve-free Halloween. The best part of painted pumpkins is that you can display these creations just about anywhere. From your front porch steps to a holiday table centerpiece, these pumpkins are ready to be the focal point in any room. So forget the mess and and grab a brush this season.
