Grab some stickers and Halloween craft supplies to make your own no-carve monster pumpkins for Halloween!
When we went pumpkin picking at my brother’s, the boys couldn’t help but pick a bunch of unripe, green pumpkins.
Not exactly your traditional jack-o-lanterns, but it’s what they wanted.
I love decorating for Halloween. To me, that means pumpkins everywhere!
Make your own no-carve pumpkin man (or woman) for the front porch!
When I asked if they’d like to decorate some pumpkins for inside, Henry said only the green ones.
So we decorated those.
No-Carve Monster Pumpkins for Halloween
And they ended up kind of monster-ish. Really, anything can be a monster, right?
I love how these no-carve monster pumpkins turned out. And green ended up being the ideal color!

To make your own pumpkin monsters, you’ll need:
- Pumpkins, any color and size
- Craft supplies: stickers, foam shapes, feathers, gems .etc.
- Googly eyes
- Glue, if needed
- Glitter (optional)
We just used what we had on hand in our craft cupboard.
A few pom poms got glued one, and lots and lots of feathers (affiliate link) for hair. We even threw a few underneath the pumpkins as table decoration.
I set out glue in a dish with a cotton bud to swab over the pumpkin. George would have liked to paint the entire pumpkin in glue, I think!
