Carving pumpkins can be messy and dangerous. Here are 10 easy and safer ways to decorate a pumpkin this Halloween that’s perfect for the whole family.

1. Use color duct tape to draw a friendly or spooky skeleton on a white pumpkin. 


2. Cut out a circle and a witch silhouette on the front of a plastic or real pumpkin.


3. Or, create a spooky Halloween scene. 


4. Use strips of white duct tape to make a simple mummy.


5. Ducklings are perfect for younger kids to use and decorate, like making simple, colorful stripes. 


6. Go with a classic jack-o-lantern look.


7. Like it more simple? Cover a pumpkin with a solid color and add googly eyes. You can also make a teal pumpkin for those allergy-free trick or treaters.


8. Metallic duct tape can create a more modern design for your pumpkin. Add confetti to a white pumpkin or a gold and white pattern to a plastic pumpkin to use year after year. 


9. Decorate your porch or front steps with unique plastic pumpkins that won’t rot or attract unwanted guests. 


10. Add wings to a smaller pumpkin to make a glow-in-the-dark bat.
