Hello friends! There were so many creative no-carve pumpkin decorating ideas shared at last week’s Merry Monday link party that I rounded up 20+ to inspire you.

This post contains affiliate links at no extra cost to you. Please see my full disclosure here.

One of the many reasons that I love co-hosting Merry Monday is that I am able to see and be inspired by so many talented bloggers that I might not come across otherwise, as the web is so huge.

It really is fun to see what is shared each week. Once you take a look at these no-carve pumpkins, you will understand what I’m talking about.

These ladies took a simple pumpkin and turned it into something you would find at a home or specialty store. And, they did it without having to carve a pumpkin!
