Decorating a pumpkin doesn’t have to involve a sharp knife. We haven’t carved a pumpkin for several years at our house. We paint them! Painted pumpkins will last longer than carved pumpkins do, and you can get very creative with paint. Here are some cute and fun painted pumpkins for inspiration.
You can use any acrylic paint, and top it with a coat of polyurethane to give the pumpkin a shiny finish.

Dress them up like your favorite character, better yet make a pumpkin look alike for everyone in your family.
