Every year we love decorating pumpkins but lets be honest, carving them out is messy and time consuming. Here is an idea for a no-carve pumpkin that looks bright and fun and is a bit different this Halloween.
You will need:
A white pumpkin
Glue gun and glue stick
Firstly, make sure that the area you are working in is well covered with protective paper / tablecloth and you are wearing an apron as the wax from the melted crayons can splatter!
Glue the crayons to the top of the pumpkin – this is harder than it looks, it takes patience and balance!
Hold a hairdryer over the crayons to melt them over the pumpkin. Be warned – they will splatter! A top tip is to bend the crayons down as they start to melt so the wax drips down the pumpkin. I think you would be better using thinner crayons than I did here too.
It makes a great effect though and is quite easy to do and the children loved it!
We made a video tutorial which is on my YouTube channel – take a look at it below…
