Don’t get me wrong. I love carving pumpkins. I just hate the degutting process and I am the only one that is willing to do that in my house. Each year, my children raise the bar with their carving requests and, I have to say, I am getting pretty good at it.

But there are some years where I wish we took an easier approach to our pumpkin carving. As in, not carving them at all.


There are a ton of no carve pumpkin ideas but this one takes the cake for me. It’s super simple, uses duct tape, and can be finished in a matter of minutes. Sign me up!
