17.) The Eyeball Halloween Pumpkin
If your kids love a little creepy in their Halloween, this is a cute idea, yet not super scary! With white, red, blue and black acrylic paint you can make this one for yourself!
18.) Spray Paint Pumpkins
If you want to avoid carving pumpkins and like some glitter, this is the perfect easy idea for sprucing up some plain pumpkins! Just choose the color you want your pumpkin to be and purchase that color of spray paint. The glitter spray is so fun to add over a solid or just use by itself!
19.) Thumbtack Pumpkin
This idea is perfect if you want to use a faux pumpkin and don’t want to carve a real one. Using a styrofoam pumpkin, push thumbtacks into the pumpkin in whatever design you like and then add glitter glue over the thumbtacks for a little bling!
20.) Simple No Carve Spider Web Pumpkin
With some hot glue and glitter, this one is simple! It’s also a great idea if you want to do a book themed pumpkin, any guesses what book this represents?
