It’s that time of year again! I love Halloween because it’s when I spend all my spare time making cute no carve pumpkins. I may be a little terrified (okay, more than a little) to cut into a real pumpkin. I’m all about decorating pumpkins without knives involved and plus, who wants to deal with messy pumpkin guts, right?
That’s because I’ve discovered these cool styrofoam craft pumpkins. There are so many fun ideas that you can create and I’m always trying to outdo the pumpkin designs from the previous year. As soon as these hit the stores, I totally stock up! (You can get them on Amazon but they’re only $1 at Dollar Tree.)
For the past several years, I’ve even been sharing my fun pumpkin creations on our local morning show, Suncoast View. It’s always a great time but I always feel the pressure to make TV worthy pumpkins (though I’m totally up to the challenge).
This year I have a new favorite, my Baby Yoda pumpkin. I mean, how can you not love this little guy, right?
There are plenty more to choose from though, whether you’re into Harry Potter or Jack Skellington. Just grab a pumpkin and click the link for the full tutorial. The whole family will have a blast creating these cute pumpkin projects.
Cute Pumpkin Ideas For Halloween
Are you as obsessed with Baby Yoda as we are? This Baby Yoda pumpkin was so much fun to make and may just be our new favorite no-carve pumpkin!
We are equally obsessed with Harry Potter! I made a Golden Snitch pumpkin a couple years ago but thought it was high time I made a Harry Potter pumpkin to go along with it!
Technically I guess this isn’t a no carve pumpkin since I did cut it. I was actually trying to carve Spookley The Square Pumpkin but didn’t realize it was hollow. At first I was going to toss it but then thought I’d try making a Halloween diorama. My girls LOVED this cute idea and had a great time making their own!
I had a blast making these emoji pumpkins, though I’m still trying to figure out how to make the poop emoji that my five year old loves so much! The best part is that once you have the pumpkin, the only supplies you’ll need are a few different colors of acrylic paint.
You’ll be the superhero when you share this cool Spiderman pumpkin craft with the kids! Who doesn’t love Spiderman, right?
Nothing says Halloween like Frankenstein and this no carve pumpkin will get you and the kids ready for some creepy fun!
From orange styrofoam pumpkin to a beautiful butterfly! This butterfly pumpkin may just be one of our prettiest creations yet!
Our butterfly pumpkin needed a friend and what could be more perfect than this cute bumblebee?
Melting crayons over a pumpkin might just be one of my favorite Halloween pumpkin ideas ever! It might be messy but it sure was fun. The best part is that no two ever turn out the same.
This is one of the few pumpkin ideas that doesn’t work with the styrofoam pumpkin though. You’ll need a real one or a faux pumpkin made from harder materials.
It’s not Halloween without black cats, right? We’re cat lovers anyway so my girls loved it when I made this black cat pumpkin. It was super easy and really fun to make…everybody should have a black cat pumpkin for Halloween!
Pumpkin painting ideas don’t get much prettier than this colorful unicorn pumpkin! A little paint and some flowers turn this into one of the prettiest pumpkins yet!
Love Harry Potter? Why not make a Harry Potter themed pumpkin for Halloween.
Who says spiders are scary? This spider pumpkin couldn’t be any cuter!
I’m never really sure if he’s a Halloween or Christmas character but since he has creepy written all over him, we’ll keep Jack Skellington linked to Halloween.
We made Jack first, but then he needed a partner. Now he’s got this Sally Skellington pumpkin to keep him from being lonely!
Who doesn’t love Hello Kitty, right? This cute Hello Kitty pumpkin is a fun addition to our pumpkin collection!
We’re a little Disney obsessed in my house and this adorable Minnie Mouse pumpkin makes the perfect Halloween craft for Disney lovers!
You can’t have Minnie without Mickey, right? This Mickey Mouse pumpkin is a super cute and easy pumpkin decorating idea for Halloween!
We love bats for Halloween and it seemed like the perfect choice for our next no carve pumpkin!
This mummy pumpkin is super easy to make so even very young kids can have fun with this one. You just need some white paint, gauze and oversized googly eyes for a little Halloween fun!
This was inspired by a trip to the grocery store and all the delicious looking caramel apples that were on display!
This didn’t start out as a Cinderella pumpkin. I just really liked this blue paint that we had left over from painting my daughter’s bedroom. I glued a few strands of “diamonds” to it, then some larger gems. When I was finished, Cinderella was the first thing that came to mind. What do you think?
When I came across pink metallic paint in the craft store, I knew it had to make it’s way into one of my crafts. You can never go wrong with polka dots and this fun pumpkin is great for both younger and older children.
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t actually inspired by a peacock. It kind of happened by accident but when all was said and done, we all agreed that this did look like a peacock. It was done in a hurry because I wanted to create a pumpkin to raise awareness for the Teal Pumpkin Project. Don’t know what that is? Find out all about it, then make your own peacock pumpkin for Halloween.
Sometimes when I make a mistake, it turns out better than what I’d originally planned. That’s exactly what happened with this Spiderweb Pumpkin. See what mistake was that I made and tell me if you think it was an improvement or not.
This was another pumpkin that I started making with no clear idea of where I was going with it. I just knew that I wanted a pumpkin covered in glitter. By the time I was finished, we all agreed that it looked like exploding fireworks.
A little spray paint and some sparkly ribbon and I was able to turn an ugly styrofoam pumpkin into something pretty. See what it looked like before I got started.
There are no shortage of fun ways to decorate a pumpkin and trick-or-treaters will love seeing these on your front porch!
