15 Non-Scary Ways To Decorate A Pumpkin For Halloween

| | | |

Add a Halloween pumpkin to your front door that won’t scare the littles away!  If you don’t do scary at your home for Halloween, you’ll love this list of 15 non-scary pumpkin ideas.

Happy (almost) Halloween and BOO, y’all!  It’s hard to believe that Halloween is right around the corner!  I always get such a kick out of seeing all the sweet and innocent faces of the little ones that come to my door.

It’s all because of those sweet and innocent faces that I don’t get into the scary side of Halloween too much.  Shoot, I’m such a wienie that some of the decorations that I see even creep me out, especially if they’re gory.  You can always count on me to look away if I spot a ginormous fake spider in someone’s yard or on their house – I don’t even want to look at them!

But that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to have a Halloween pumpkin.  No way!  I just don’t want it to be scary looking.  Whether carved or not, I still enjoy having the traditional pumpkin to greet the trick-or-treaters who come to my door.  While searching for inspiration this year, I came up with 15 great ideas.

  3. Love these ideas. I don’t like scary either, especially for little ones. Discovered your blog through Southern Hospitality and enjoyed your home tour. And I loved the link to the tips on decorating a Christmas tree! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Following on several platforms, also… You are welcome to come share at What to do Weekends Party tonight (Thursday at 10 PM. Eastern Time.) Linda

  6. I was thinking that when I was a child, all we did was carve a face on a pumpkin! Now look at all the ideas. I like the candy corn ones and will definitely pin this post. Thanks.

    What great ideas! Especially like the pumpkins with the designs carved in them (we don’t do scary, either).

  8. Susan Lippmann Batastini says:

    I am so late this year that I wanted to at least be able to incorporate (turn the pumpkin around and add something Thanksgiving-ish) what I put out for Halloween that would go forward and keep the trekking up to the attic to a minimum…I love the Halloween house from another post and Hobby Lobby had reduced the group of 3 to $7! Happy Halloween to me.
    Thanks for your grand inspiration and thank you thank you for helping to make a big impact with my budget (time and money) in mind.
    Happy Halloween!

    I really like those etched-out pumpkins! Beautiful. I’m definitely not on the scary side. I like my porch and decor to reflect the season, not necessarily Halloween. 🙂

    Thank you so much for including my Rae Dunn inspired pumpkins!

  20. Suzy when I saw that Paranoid pumpkin man I was so pleasantly surprised. He really has taken on a life of his own. When I first created him we kept him around after Halloween and he managed to survive a whole year. I like to think it is from all the love he got from everyone. Happy Halloween dear friend and thank you for including my sweet little guy. .

  21. I am just not a fan of scary Halloween 🎃 Love these cute ideas, and so will my grands!!!!!

  22. Haha! These are creative ideas! My kids are always afraid of pumpkins in Halloween. I will try to decorate pumpkins in a more friendly way this year!

  23. Wow these are so creative and gorgeous. My favorites are the cats.
