I've long been a fan of painting Halloween pumpkins as opposed to carving them. I like how carved ones looks, but I find them so tedious, and mine rarely turn out how I want them to. So I very much admire people who can successfully carve them. These pumpkins were done by my nieces and nephews. Aren't they adorable? The little monster and ghost that my niece did are so creative and cute. And look at the pumpkin on the left—my nephew is the next Jackson Pollock!
The kids loved painting the pumpkins and my mom got these paint markers for them to use. Makes decorating pumpkins so easy! Not to mention much less messy than carving, or using paints with paintbrushes.
