I’m all about the no-carve pumpkin decorating ideas and I came up with this creative pumpkin decorating idea that is perfect for mini pumpkins. You’ve probably seen clay nail art slices before but did you know those little slices are great for crafts! This keychain tutorial is another great craft that uses the same nail art slices. This pumpkin craft definitely looks like it takes longer than it really does. I finished in about 30 minutes. You can make it even faster if you space the clay slices further apart. Below are the exact supplies I used along with directions.

- Nail Art Clay Slices
- Glitter Paint

1,Start by adding some glitter paint to a small section of the pumpkin. You’ll only want to add a small amount of paint at a time as it dries quickly.
2. Using tweezers and start to add the clay slices. Since the paint is wet it will be easy to move them around to make them fit. I even started to add 5+ slices at once and I would straighten them out and move them into place once they were on the pumpkin.
