These ideas are so easy, it's scary.
It's no secret that we love a good carved pumpkin for Halloween. But forget the same old pumpkin decorating ideas you've been doing year after year and take a zombie crawl to the spookier side. Mix up your DIY Halloween decorations with an easy idea from our roundup that's full of inspirational designs that are so much cooler than the standard, grinning jack-o'-lantern.
Spend a weekend with the kids making a boo-tiful pumpkin marquee, a Mason jar-inspired pumpkin, or pumpkin lanterns that'll help light the way for future trick-or-treaters. Or, rather than an expected orange display, gray, white, terrazzo, or even plaid carved creations make for much more creative fall porch decorations. Another idea? Put your pumpkins to good use this year around the house in a purely genius new way, like as a DIY ice bucket, candy jar, pumpkin purse, or terrarium.
There are plenty of ideas for beginners in this roundup, so no matter your skill level, you're guaranteed to have the best-looking creation on the block. You've never seen pumpkins like this before, and each project is just as scary (or sweet) as the next. Happy haunting and carving!
