No Knife? No Problem: Check Out Our Favorite No-Carve Pumpkin Design Ideas

Jack-'o-Lanterns are a traditional and quintessential Halloween decoration, but if you want to mix up your spooky decor (or are just sick of carving up a big squash), opt for a creative non-carving pumpkin design. 

In fact, crafting up non-carving pumpkin designs can be even more fun. We love the idea of getting creative with your pumpkins this year. Cutting into the large squash is not only messy, but also time-consuming and potentially dangerous, especially for small children. And cleaning out all of the gunk inside? No thanks. 

Make sure your designs stand out this year with some of these clever non-carved designs. Take some glow-in-the-dark paint for a quick, but spooky decoration. Or grab a variety of candy with your kids and make some clever designs with just the sweet treats and toothpicks. 

You can even add a touch of chic pumpkin design with a silhoutte painted on, which is a simple and family-friendly craft. The best part? The kiddos can get involved, since there aren't any sharp or dangerous tools involved.

Take a look at our non-carved pumpkin designs and let us know: do you prefer carving up pumpkins? Or will you try a non-carved design this year?
