Pumpkin season is here! Once you’ve picked your white or orange ones from the store or patch, it’s time to decorate.

From a marbleized pumpkin to glittered pumpkins, we’ve got the ideas you need to have a happening Halloween.

Marbleized Pumpkins

All you need is a white pumpkin, some nail polish and water, and you’ve got a really nifty looking marbleized pumpkin. The kids will love how cool this looks. Dip a white pumpkin (they’re easier to dye) in water dotted with nail polish and wait for the miracle. View the tutorial here.

Glittered Pumpkins

Searching for an easy way to get your pumpkin to glow sans candle? Try glitter! Wash your pumpkin, coat it with white glue and then sprinkle with glitter. It really is that easy. Check out this how-to guide by Martha Stewart.
