12 No Carve Pumpkin Ideas

12 No Carve Pumpkin Ideas

I love NOT carving pumpkins (I know, so weird). The cool thing about no-carve pumpkins is it’s less messy (sometimes), the sad part is you don’t get all the pumpkin seeds to roast for yummy snacks (like these parmesan pumpkin seeds). Below I gathered 12 of my favorite No Carve Pumpkin Ideas from around the web, enjoy!

    And the best part is, non-punctured pumpkins last for weeks! I'm totally trying the puffy paint one. Thanks!
