I don’t typically paint or decorate pumpkin in traditional Halloween colors. I can’t seem but help to make my pumpkins bright and colorful.  I’m also not a huge fan of carving pumpkins so here are a bunch of no-carve colorful pumpkin decorating ideas to help inspire you. I’ve included a pumpkin decorating supply list as well as directions or a link to the tutorial for each pumpkin idea. Colorful Pumpkin Decorating Ideas
