Pumpkin Pizazz: No-Carve Pumpkin Decorating

The season of pumpkin everything is in full swing! When decorating this year, I decided to go the no-carve route. Partly because my carving skills are less than extraordinary, but also to switch it up and try something new. I loved the idea of using three dimensional embellishments to add extra pumpkin pizzaz. The result? A black and gold coordinating family of three.

I enjoyed taking a new approach this year, more pretty and less messy!

    I’ve never celebrated Halloween much, so never had much of the pumpkin-carving, etc. But I love the lace, chevron, and distressed versions! I never thought of spray-painting them…but it’s great :D
