I have to admit that Halloween is not really my jam.  I don’t love orange and black as a color combo, cheap Halloween costumes have a weird smell that makes me nauseous, and, as a child-free woman, an evening when children are invited to scream at my door and demand my candy is, quite frankly, more terrifying than A Nightmare on Elm Street… This year though, my mission is to really embrace Fall, so when I spotted a bag of miniature pumpkins at the grocery store I decided that maybe a little no carve pumpkin decorating might help me feel more festive.

It worked!  Basically, you can convince me to like anything if you paint it turquoise.  I can’t get over how cute these turquoise DIY no carve pumpkins are.

A package of dollar store stick-on gems (here’s a similar pack on Amazon) in spoooookkkkyy black and silver added a little bit of sparkle – although I think these pumpkins look adorable in every state:  plain, turquoise, be-sparkled.  They’re mini pumpkins and they’re aqua!  Yeah, I can get on board with this.

I also made this little “evening sky” pumpkin with a deep blue paint and a smattering of silver stick-on rhinestones:

Because these rhinestones actually come in strips, I also whipped up this pale blue mini pumpkin with black and white stripes:

Once I started bedazzling my pumpkins, it was difficult to stop.  I really got into the spirit of things and almost bedazzled the gourds I bought for dinner (I sneak them into a chili recipe).  But I stuck to the turquoise DIY no carve pumpkins.

    Just a little heads up, if you plan to display any outside, teal pumpkins (at least in the US) are now a sign for children with food allergies that the home has allergy friendly treats for Trick-or-Treating on Halloween. https://www.foodallergy.org/teal-pumpkin-project#.V_4r6fkrLmE

      Yes, I learned that this year. I was chatting with another turquoise-lover on Insta and we were both wishing they had chosen a different color, lol. ANY other color. Well, these are for indoor use anyway – I am not sure how paint and stick-on sequins would hold up to the weather. But thanks so much for the head's up!

      Thanks! I'm so happy with how they turned out. I have one more idea but I'm not sure it will pan out – we'll see. Then I'm about done for this season, lol.

    I love those. Would never have thought to add the rhinestones. Keeping it fun on Halloween. I need to make a little ghost or two for my pumpkin tree. Gotta get on that.

      Thank you! Little ghosts would be so cute for the tree. I'll keep my eyes peeled on Instagram for them šŸ™‚

    How do you keep the paint from flaking off? I painted some pumpkins last year and the bottoms eventually stuck to my tabletop šŸ˜’

      My two cents: quality of paint and dry time. Even among acrylic and craft paints, there is a lot of difference in quality. My most expensive acrylic paints from Michael's stuck on the best. As well, I let mine dry awhile. Interior house paint take 30 days to fully cure, although we start using things before that time. I am guessing craft paints also take longer to cure after the recommended "dry" time. Humidity could impact dry time as well. Mine are on the window ledge and no paint has flaked – although these wouldn't withstand rough handling: you could scrape the paint off if you tried. But I let them dry thoroughly, used a good quality paint, and my house is pretty dry. Such a bummer what happened to yours – not fun to have to peel them off the table I'm sure.

    I put a paper printed teal pumpkin outside every year for the sign for (gluten free and diabetic) nonedible and I usually get a few requests. We get over a hundrednkids every year at our door. My sister, with a child who has very severe celiac, brought this to my attention quite a while ago, and my brother has a child with diabetes. When they were young they could not really participate in trick or treat, or even some classroom or party activities easily. You could make one of these for your porch or to add to your decorative front pots, even with a fake pumpkin and keep it if you wanted!
