Decorating pumpkins is an October tradition. While the kids enjoy carving pumpkins, it’s the no-carve pumpkin ideas that they really get excited about. Not only do they last longer than the carved versions, but the kids can really get creative with them, like with this paint and glitter pumpkin. This year my son had tons of fun creating a googly eyed pumpkin. Googly eyes really do make everything better!
This fun no-carve pumpkin idea looks great on a mini pumpkin, but it’s also fun on larger pumpkins.
Before starting, wash off any dirt and dry your pumpkin completely.
Use your craft glue to stick each eye onto the pumpkin. You can use wiggly eyes that are all one size, or you can mix and match a variety of sizes (and colors). My son had fun finding just the right spot to add each of his plastic eyes. (Notice how all the tiny eyes got put in a group?)
For younger children I suggest pouring a small amount of glue into a shallow container and having them use a paintbrush to apply the adhesive. Older kids or adults can carefully add the right amount of glue to adhere each googly eye.
This simple no-carve googly eye pumpkin makes a cute centerpiece alone, or in a group of mini-pumpkins.
