Halloween doesn’t have to be solely about creating scary situations. It’s the time of year to make your wildest imaginations come alive. And if that means dressing up as a princess for Halloween, then so be it! You can take it a step further and incorporate the princess theme into your decor, too.
These princess-inspired pumpkins are the prettiest Halloween trend, so you’re definitely going to want to find out how you can recreate them to display in your very own home.
Luckily, there’s no carving involved. You’ll only need your imagination, some paint and plenty of sparkle to transform a regular old pumpkin into the belle of the ball.
The As The Bunny Hops blog has some ideas for easy-to-make, no-carve princess pumpkins that can be used on real pumpkins (for just one season) or faux pumpkins (to keep displaying year after year).
Once you decide whether or not you’re using a fresh pumpkin, the only thing left to do will be to get your supplies ready and let your imagination run wild.
The outcome is like a dream come true.
