Pumpkin carving is probably one of the most popular activities on Halloween. We carve those pumpkins to create faces, patterns and designs. While some find it fun to do, there are some people, like me, who find this burdensome. Yeah, I really don’t have any talent in carving those pumpkins. Although I find them cool and I’d love to have one on my yard or porch on Halloween, it’s just too bad that I don’t have the skill to carve those holes (even with patterns) The solution? I’ll just got for no-carve pumpkins! Yes, you don’t have to drill or carve, just decorate. Here are some of the coolest no-carve pumpkin decorating ideas I’ve found.
