PERSONALIZE WITH PAINT
Completely cover the pumpkin with metallic or matte spray paint. Once dry, use a paint pen to draw on a spooky silhouette, polka dots or freehand squiggles.
Only takes 15 minutes!
SAY IT WITH CHALK
Using a can of chalkboard paint, coat the entire surface in black -- even the stem. Once dry, write fun or scary sayings on it with chalk markers.
Only takes 5 minutes!
MAKE BEADS SPARKLE
Draw a whimsical pattern -- like spirals, spiderwebs or swirls -- on the rind with a pencil. Then hot-glue strands of black and white beads onto the pumpkin, following the pencil outline.
Only takes 10 minutes!
BUILD A BURGER
Make a big batch of Cocoa Krispies Treats and mold it into a burger patty while still warm. Top it with rolled-out green Fruit Roll-Ups, yellow Laffy Taffy, strawberry Sour Punch Bites and red cookie icing. To make the bun, cut a pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds and "glue" white Good & Plenty candies to the top half of the pumpkin using white cookie icing.
Only takes 20 minutes!
STICK ON DECORATIONS
Buy a full-size paper or plastic skeleton door hanging and detach one arm. Place a medium pumpkin on top of a large one and glue on the skeletal appendage to look like it's reaching out from the ground.
Only takes 1 minute!
