7 gourd-gess ways to decorate your pumpkins this Halloween
There's no doubt it is the season of pumpkins. Spiced scents waft out of coffee shops and pumpkin butter for both bread and body line store shelves.
As the days inch closer to Halloween, pumpkins make their way from the stores to home doors. While some may opt for the traditional type of pumpkin carving, try skipping the carving and seed scooping this year in favor of some simple, crafty ways to decorate your doorstep.
1. Traditional jack-o-lanterns
Bring smiles to trick o’treater faces with these simple versions of the traditional Halloween-ready pumpkin. Because they’re made with vinyl, you can mix and match the eyes, noses, and spooky smiles for fun variations throughout the month.
2. Pumpkins with a touch of flair
Love carving pumpkins but want to make a few easy additions to spice things up? Consider adding finishing touches like Halloween sayings or spiders along side your other designs.
3. Skull decals are a no-brainer
Whether for Halloween or Día de los Muertos, skull designs make for popular selections when it comes to decorating. Cricut Design Space has a wide selection to pick from, whether you’re adorning your gourds, walls, glassware, or even greeting cards.
4. Draw attention with stencils
Paint and stencils make a perfect pair when it comes to pumpkin decorating. Use your vinyl to make patterns of any kind, like this intricate spider web.
5. Add dimension with cardstock
Want to do something that sticks out? We went batty for these 3D designs using glitter cardstock, and combined it with vinyl decals for a little something even more extra.
6. Pumpkins can dress up too
Seeing a giant tarantula in our house would normally not be the most exciting thing for many people, but how cute is this one? Everything really is more fun with a set of googly-eyes.
7. Friendly fun for everyone
Scary stuff not your scene? One of the best things about Halloween is you can make it whatever you want. Skip the dark colors and opt for something light and fun instead, like our unicorn pumpkin head or even just polka dots.
