Did Halloween sneak up on you? It did for me. I actually managed to buy two pumpkins a few days ago but they’ve yet to be carved. Every year we usually do some pretty elaborate carvings and have three or four nice jack-o-lanterns lit up on the front porch but I don’t think that’s going to happen this year.
If you don’t have the time to carve your pumpkin the old fashioned way or just don’t feel like making a monstrous mess, it’s not too late! Here are a few quick and easy decorating ideas that I’ve come across.
To get the kids to join in on the fun, just give them some paints or markers, glue and glitter and let them be creative in making their own punkin’ faces!
Or find some cute funny face stickers that they can just stick right on. These are actually printable stickers from Family Fun.
Here’s an idea from Martha Stewart on how to decorate your pumpkin Halloween faces with a variety of candies.
Whatever your plans are for this year, we wish you safe and Happy Halloween!
