You had me at “no carve!” Well, I don’t hide the fact around here that Halloween isn’t my favorite of holidays, but I love me a good pretty pumpkin, don’t you? Not to mention, I’m always at the 11th hour around here, and these all seem very in-an-hour doable. Now, if I only had more hours!
(1) The Doily Pumpkin may be my favorite pretty pumpkin of all time. It is a beauty from Allyson Baker, which was featured next to my glitter place cards on Creature Comforts – such good company!
(2) The dried foliage mod-podged on to these white pumpkins aren’t far behind on my pretty-meter. Maybe I just like pumpkins shot from overhead? So lovely. These were featured as part of a Country Living pumpkin decorating slide show.
(3) Gold oak leaves on a white pumpkin? Yes, please. I love the golden gourd accompaniment, too. This beauty was on a Better Homes and Garden pumpkin slide show.
Well, can you guess what I’m doing this weekend? The kids won’t take anything but a traditional carved pumpkin, so breaking out the newspaper and knives with my 8, 9 and 10 year old this weekend (who thought this was a good idea, anyway!?) Couldn’t we all just pull out a paint pen and be happy?? Hope you all have a lovely, warm, PRETTY fall weekend.
Lovely! I LOVE Halloween, and I always go a bit crazy with all the pumpkins, but then of course they need carving. This year, I drilled for the first time and it was amazing! Drilling is the new Carving! So much fun, but you still have to scoop out the insides… Have fun!
Hi Katie! Yes, I’ve seen so many awesome drilled pumpkin designs out there – amazing stuff. And then the laser-cut ones, too – wow! Thanks so much for your comment.
