No carve pumpkin ideas

Posted on

Hi lovely mammas

I’m not going to lie . Last years Lalji household pumpkin carving display was abysmal resulting in 2 cut fingers and mummy sat alone on the kitchen floor surrounded by pumpkin insides!!!!!

So this year I’m confessing i HATE  pumpkin carving. Its gooey , it stinks and its just a lot of mess

But mammas theres a new craft in town so put down those knives for this year its all about the Pumpkin decoration!!!!!

After a few hours scrolling through pinterest i found some amazing designs and today we’re going to be sharing a few with you ready for your happy halloween

We hope you have a much fun creating them as we did



So we start with our favourite  –  The Cinderella Princess Pumpkin

For this you’ll need

1 large Pumpkin

Paint brushes

Blue acrylic paint ( available from amazon )

Blue and silver gem stickers

Blue fake flowers ( available in the christmas section of most garden centres)

please note it did take the paint overnight to dry – you can finish the pumpkin off with gems and silver decorations around the bottom



Next we decided to do a unicorn
