If you are looking to carve or decorate to decorate a pumpkin this fall,  here are some ideas to  get you started.

1. Use a cookie cutter to  create a pattern. Place the cookie cutter on the pumpkin, then use a  hammer to pound it halfway in.  Remove the cookie cutter, carve out the  shape and repeat.

2. To add some extra flair to your pumpkin, tie or hot glue colored or sparkly ribbons on it.

3.  Painting is another great way to decorate pumpkins. Maybe add a fall  themed quote, or paint the pumpkin to look like your favorite cartoon  character.  Here's some inspiration!

Be sure to use acrylic paint and a sealant spray after you've painted your pumpkin to ensure lasting results.

4.  Make a glitter pumpkin! Paint the pumpkin with glue (basic craft glue  will work fine), sprinkle glitter onto it, and repeat.  After the pumpkin dries, shake off the extra glitter.  Use a sealing spray to avoid any more of a mess.
