I love pumpkins, everything to do with pumpkins but never been a big fan of carving them. Why not just decorate a pumpkin, a big yes from me. Any excuse to get some glitter out, love the stuff. This easy no carve pumpkin will look fab as a centre piece, sitting on your front door or on your fireplace.

  • Gold glitter
  • Variety of black bats
  • 3 pins
  • 1 hammer
  • Super glue
  • Newspaper

no carve pumpkin things you need

Step 1
no carve pumpkin
Take some gold spray paint, I’ve chosen my favourite spray paint, Montana in a lovely matt gold. Then spray lightly over the top of the pumpkin. Let each layer dry and spray again, this will help build a nice gold colour and stop any dripping.

Step 2
no carve pumpkin glitter
This is the fun part, do a very light spray with the gold spray paint and then take a pinch of glitter and sprinkle over the pumpkin. I decided to do this in a heavy way which was a lot of fun. Let this dry completely and then shake off the excess glitter.

Step 3
no carve pumpkin bats
Get a bat and a pin, hammer this through until it pokes out slightly. Then place this on the front of pumpkin and keep hammering until the bat is in place. I did this with a further two other bats. I used a little bit of super glue just to get the wings down a bit.

Place it where you want it and enjoy your no carve pumpkin.
