20 Adorable and Easy No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas for Fall

Carving pumpkins is a tradition as old as time when it comes to celebrating Halloween. It’s one of the most beloved traditions, but it can be quite messy. After all, gutting a pumpkin and then scooping it out all over the floor doesn’t really sound like the best way to spend your Halloween.

Instead, you don’t have to deal with pumpkin innards or going pumpkinless this season. These 20 no-carve pumpkin ideas are the perfect solution to give you that same award-winning pumpkin without the mess.

These ideas are perfect for a date night activity; you don’t even have to find a knife.
