5 Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Every October we have a tradition where my brother comes over and with my husband and the kids, they  have a ton of fun carving pumpkins! Two is our limit when it comes to carving. However, we always end up with a lot more pumpkins because of school field trips to the pumpkin patch and excited family members who want to buy the kids pumpkins. So a couple years back, we tried some Pumpkin Decorating Ideas instead of carving.

The pumpkin decorating ideas were a hit and they don’t require carving! Last year we even had a fun Halloween party at our house where everyone got to get creative and make their own special pumpkin.
