A pumpkin is a great Halloween, Thanksgiving or just fall décor base. You may turn this orange and charming vegetable into something elegant, original and funny using a conventional knife only. However, the other side of the medal is not so attractive – there is a mess, and the time spent, and spoiled vegetables, and low spirits. If you don’t feel like a master of pumpkin carving, put the knife aside. We have got something inspiring for you – a collection of No Carve Pumpking Decorating Ideas!
We present you 12 ways to decorate your home with a pumpkin. Bright, unexpected ideas will change your home without any clutter and fuss. And no carving as well!
