Easy No-Carve Mummy
Cheescloth can be used for a lot of things, even a curious looking pumpkin mummy. Wrapping cheescloth around a pumpkin and leaving room to expose some of the eyes gives your pumpking the look of a mummy. You can paint the area for the eyes black, or use black construction paper if that's too much work. Small pieces will do just fine and can be held in place with tape or glue. You can cut the eyes out using scissors once you are done wrapping. It's a very simple carvless design that kids (and parents) can enjoy.
Don't want to make a spooky mummy? Try making this friendly googly-eyed mummy instead. It's really easy to do and very kid friendly. Bright colors work best under the wrap in making it stand out. Of course, you don't have to paint it if you don't want to.
Scalloped Tissue Paper
Tissue paper was used to create this design that makes pumpkins look like it's wearing a chicken costume. It's unusual for sure and if layered looks are your style then you may want to give it a shot.
Metled crayon art is so cool! This is a spin on the traditional melted design, where the pumpkin is heated before letting kids draw on the outside with crayons. Different idea for sure!
So simple and unique. This design involves making rows of painted dots along the surface. It looks great on a white pumpkin. Fabric paint can be used for so many things, and ths is yet another great example.
For a modern, sophisticated pumpkin, look no further than this white and gold mosaic design. It's another no carve option for us folks that "don't wanna" carve a pumpkin.
If decopauge and mod poge are your thing then this design is for you. For those uninformed, decoupage involves cutting out designs from paper that is then stuck to the surface of something using glue known as mod poge. This design takes it a little further by also intricately aranged golden thumb tacks.
