Every year I think about decorating pumpkins . . . and every year I avoid it because of the smell of the insides while carving. Or maybe it’s touching the smooshy guts. I’m not sure, but at this point in my life I would rather find other ways to decorate a pumpkin besides carving. If you are like me, or even if you just want something you can keep year after year, you’ll love these 20 ideas. Some of them use faux pumpkins, and others use real pumpkins (but you can recreate these on faux pumpkins too!). They range from painting to glue to nailheads . . . and all of them are awesome.
