Monday Makes – No-carve pumpkin ideas

84918dc810aff1785ef317f2b2a7d2b6It’s officially Halloween season! All the supermarkets are selling their decorations, there’s a bunch of costumes being sold on the high street and there’s pumpkins everywhere you look. Traditionally, a pumpkin would be gutted and carved with a spooky face, but it’s becoming more and more trendy to be that little bit extra creative with them. In this post, we’ll be showing you a few ideas on how you can decorate a pumpkin without having to carve it! Not only will it look fab, but it will also last longer than those that have been gutted.
