I love carving pumpkins, but it is messy, time consuming, and the carved pumpkins don’t always last that long, especially here in Florida where it is still hot and humid in October. Last week I posted a collection of no-carve pumpkins, and I wanted to try a few. My kids and I have been painting mini pumpkins, which is a lot of fun, but I wanted to try something more creative.
I have seen a lot of creative pumpkin decorating ideas using thumb tacks, and I started wondering if you could use nails the same way and create a string art project. I was worried that the nails wouldn’t stick, and that they would fall out, or that the pumpkins would leak and ooze from the holes. Neither of these things ended out being a problem. It was so easy (and ridiculously fun) to hammer little nails all around the pumpkin.
What you need:
2. Nails (I used 1 inch nails)
3. Embroidery Thread
4. A Pumpkin
What creative no-carve ways have you used to decorate pumpkins?
