Pumpkin carving alternatives are perfect for people who don't have the rare artistic talents of carving an incredible jack-o-lantern. Likewise, if you're someone who doesn't like digging your hands in pumpkins or you just don't have the patience to do so, these alternatives are also ideal.
These innovative ideas will still make your front porch look extremely festive, and this year you won't have to be embarrassed about your pumpkin turning out like a lopsided-face when you had hoped to carve a truly scary and beautiful image like a ghost or vampire.
If you like doing simple DIY crafts, dressing up your pumpkin in beautiful glitter will definitely glam up your decorations. Further, you can use chalkboard paint to write messages for trick or treaters to see when they come to your door.
A really cute and creative idea without having to display your lack of artsy abilities would be to buy push pin parts and create a personified pumpkin such as one that resembles Darth Vader; people will definitely admire your one-of-a-kind idea.
