 Ok so, Halloween is like...tomorrow, and you have yet to carve a pumpkin! There's no time! You're still working on a costume, candy hasn't been purchased and trick-or-treaters are practically knocking on your door! Who has time to sit and carve a dang pumpkin?!

No worries! We've got some easy-peasy pumpkin decorating ideas that take less than 20 minutes. Here are three stress-free ways to spice up your pumpkin (possibly while you're drinking a pumpkin spice latte? Just a suggestion).

1. Wrap a giant bow around it!

It's easy to forget how a simple yet classy black bow can take your pumpkin from 0 to 100 real quick. And yes, I did find the ugliest pumpkin in the patch to take home with me. It's called "character" people, get with it.

2. OMG spray paint!

Literally so easy and so many options with some good spray paint! I opted for a nice bronze/copper in keeping with the orange pumpkin theme. I like to wrap the pumpkin stems with masking tape because I think it looks better without paint. But you might like it with...totally up to you.

Another AWESOME trick: spray small bursts of paint close to your pumpkin to get a "drip" look. Spooky right?!

3. OMGOMG glitter!

You guys...when in doubt, throw some glitter on it. We all know you have glitter somewhere in your house, put in on your pump! So fancy ya'll.

Just look how cute they all look together! Having some decorated and some "naked" pumpkins look great too! Pumpkin carving is so old school, it's time to get a little creative this Halloween! Have fun!

    1. Thanks Mary Kate! Checked out your October favorites and am definitely going to try the Oz Matrix eye gel (October has been soon busy so my eyes are looking super tired 24/7). PS Clancy and I have Chicago at the TOP of our travel list for this coming year, let us know the best place to go!!
