Fun ways to display a pumpkin, including easy no-carve pumpkins, painted pumpkins, etched and stenciled pumpkins, and more! For more ideas…
Here's an easy way to create a striking display that works especially well with smaller pumpkins. Just put an inch of crafts paint in the bottom of a paper bowl, and mix in a little water until the paint is fluid but not watery. Dip the pumpkin and gently rotate. Set your pumpkins on waxed paper to dry.
Tissue paper cutouts create a colorful stained-glass effect on pumpkins. Start with a white pumpkin (either real or faux). Cut a variety of large geometric shapes from tissue paper in the colors of your choice. Paint the pumpkin with a 2:1 blend of Mod Podge (or a similar product) and water, then apply tissue paper shapes so they are close but do not overlap.
