No-Mess Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Jack-o'lanterns are an essential part of Halloween. But not everyone likes having to deal with the big mess that goes along with hollowing out and carving a pumpkin.

Fortunately, there are other, really fun and creative ways to decorate Jack-O-Lantern that are no-mess.

Lydia Rueger from Colorado Parent magazine uses thumb tacks to create a decorative design on pumpkins.

Many craft, home improvement and discount department stores sell duct tape in a wide variety of colors and designs. You can cover your pumpkin using the tape, according to Rueger.

Permanent marker may also be used to create a design without carving into a pumpkin.

A little hot glue and some ribbon or cloth is another option for decorating your pumpkin.
