What You Need

1 large pumpkin
glue gun or crazy glue
matching buttons
spay paint

A different take on a Halloween Pumpkin – no carving needed here! This way is no fuss, no muss (which I think means mess). Plus, it’s great for kiddos since you don’t have sharp knives to hassle with. Just glue.

Bella ready to help.  Spray paint your pumpkin any colour you like and let it dry (overnight is best). Here I went with a dark theme, yet you could go any colour. Bright yellow, or blue. You could even get 3 pumpkins and spell out BOO!

With a nice dry pumpkin get out some buttons – with my dark theme, I’m sticking with dark grey and black buttons. No colour on this monogram button pumpkin.

I prearranged them so I would have an idea of what it would would look like. G is for our last name. Crazy glue or use a glue gun and stick them on and let it dry.

Place on the table or in a spooky place!

Just a tip – this pumpkin isn’t going to keep from year to year, obviously, since it’s a squash and a vegetable. It’ll rot. Also, I’ve used pumpkins to make soup after carving them, yet since I painted this one, I didn’t want to do that at all. Happy pumpkin-ing!
