It’s fall! Which means it’s time for all things pumpkin: pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin-scented candles, pumpkin pie — and pumpkin crafts! Yes, that’s right — we said pumpkin crafts.

While we love the idea of carving a pumpkin, the actual process of it can be a little more stressful than fun, tbh. Between those scary serrated carving knives and the insanely long time it takes to remove the pumpkin’s “guts,” we’ve decided to go carve-free this year.

Are you with us? Good! Let’s make some no-carve pumpkin crafts together!

1. Let’s kick things off with these donut pumpkins! How cute are they?! A few tiny pumpkins and some paint is all you need for a delicious front porch display.

2. Moving on to these crazy cool glow-in-the-dark pumpkins. Grab some white pumpkins and glow paint and you’re all set for an afternoon of easy fun.

8. We’ve already checked “donut pumpkins” off the list, so why not move on to ice cream pumpkins! These look like a ton of fun to make and everyone who visits you around the holidays will love them.

9. Your favorite little princess will go absolutely nuts over this Cinderella pumpkin (and you will, too). And we promise it’s easier to make than it looks.

10. This project is just the right mix of fun and don’t-f$%#-with-me. Bust out your power drill and get crafting! (Note that you will have to “gut” the pumpkins for this craft.)

11. This project might be a little finicky — you’ll have to apply each individual sequin to make the polka dots — but it’s something you can do while you binge watch Gilmore Girls. Sounds like a win-win to us!

12. Last up is for those who are feeling extremely crafty this season. This owl pumpkin tower is gorgeous but it’s no small feat. If you make it, share a photo with us!
