No Carve Pumpkin Ideas

I can't help but be excited about this fall weather that is slowly, but surely approaching.  I'm not one for all this heat.  It's also the time of year when I can start breaking out some new decor for the table cloth and crafty stuff for the kids.  I am also a sucker for all that simple 'less is more' type stuff people do with gourds and candles.  
Anyway, so I stumbled across some no carve pumpkin ideas that will hopefully get those wheels turnin'.  I mean really, like I have time to carve pumpkins right now, ha!  

Oh. Come. On!  You're telling me that all I have to do is find a couple of round pumpkins and hot glue a ribbon around it?  Done.  Next...

White pumpkin meets vinyl stickers, or a sharpie and a stencil for that matter!  This is too easy...

How about pumpkin meets doily?

Love this!
It's not too late to press leaves and Mod Podge them to a pumpkin!  I guess you can pretty much Mod Podge anything to a pumpkin...old photos, newspaper, scrapbook paper...your kids.  Oh wait, scratch that last one.   

OK, so this may have a little bit of carving going on, but I still like the idea of the painted squares.  Very retro. 

I have to say though, I am still a fan of the traditional scary pumpkin face...

You're on your own with this one, I have no clue how this was done.  But I just couldn't resist.  It's like he's looking straight at me!  If that's not scary I don't know what is. 

Happy Pre-Fall Pumpkin Crafting!
