Sick of scraping seeds and pulp out of your pumpkin each year? Skip the messy goop and celebrate the season without carving your pumpkin. Not only will it last a lot longer, but you'll probably have the most creative gourd on the block.
Trade your knife for a healthy helping of Mod Podge. Be sure to use the outdoor formula, as suggested by todayscreativeblog.net. Attach dried leaves, cutouts of eyeballs or anything Halloween-themed you've got around the house. You'll end up with a beautiful (or scary) decoupage pumpkin.
Wondering how to use that double-sided adhesive sitting in your craft drawer? Take a cue from UnoriginalMom.com and create a glitter monogrammed pumpkin with it. Cut out your letter of choice and apply it on a painted or plain pumpkin. Shake the glitter onto the sticky section, dusting off the excess to reveal your beautifully monogrammed pumpkin.
Use spray paint to turn your pumpkin into a piece of candy corn. You'll probably want a taller, oblong-shaped pumpkin as opposed to a plump, round gourd. Using white and yellow spray paint, transform your typical pumpkin into something sweet that will welcome trick-or-treaters. Get the full instructions at CraftProjectIdeas.com.
Glow in the Dark Puffy Paint
If you haven't played with puffy paints since you were in middle school here's an excuse to stock up once again. Grab some glow in the dark fabric paint in your favorite colors and dot on a design just like the example at club.ChicaCircle.com.
Shake up your traditional take on a jack-o-lantern by adding a bunch of glitter. Head to HGTV.com for the full instructions. You'll need some spray adhesive and a whole lot of glitter. Who doesn't need a little more sparkle in their life?
