A no-carve pumpkin decorating idea using white paint to create quirky pumpkin faces.

Carving pumpkins can be a mess…and maybe even a little dangerous if you’ve never used a carving hand saw. Which is why every Halloween, I search for new no-carve pumpkin ideas to try instead of picking up a carving tool. Who’s with me?

Every pumpkin becomes a tiny canvas when you opt for pumpkin designs that don’t involve a knife. Right?! So, it’s no surprise that I gravitate towards Halloween pumpkin ideas that use paint, stencils, stickers, fabric, tissue paper…and well, anything else you can think of (as long as it’s not carved).

6 Weekend DIYs to Try

Fall DIY ideas that you can try this weekend.

This weekend, we’re heading to Orlando for a late celebration of Hayes’ first birthday! If you follow along on stories, you saw that we kept his actual birthday pretty low key with a trip to the aquarium, some balloons at a home, and a little cupcake. But since we’ll be in Orlando this weekend, we might take him to Disney. Any thoughts on taking a one year old? Is it worth it? Jeff and I have been to Disney many, many times. But never with our kiddo in tow, so I’m wondering how hectic it would be with a baby. Let me know if you have any thoughts or experience in this department.

But the real reason I’m guessing you’re here, is for the DIYs! So, I’ve rounded up my faves for the week if you plan to put those crafty fingers to work. Here are the 6 projects I’m loving most this weekend…

Yay or Nay: Moody Green Interiors

Moody green kitchen with wooden island and herringbone floors.

I frequently flip through my saved photos on Instagram (anyone else forget what they save?) and recently the same color has been popping up over and over again. Anyone else noticing this moody green EVERYWHERE lately?!

What do you think of this color trend in interiors lately? Are you yay or nay on this one?

Honestly, I’m a little surprised by how much I like this color trend myself, since I’m not typically into such dark spaces. But the drama it brings to a space is intriguing to me. It feels sophisticated and cool and in some spaces, almost feels like a neutral which is so interesting.

White Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups Recipe

White Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups Recipe for Fall! #fallrecipe #dessertrecipe #candy #candyrecipe #pumpkinpie #pumpkinspicerecipe #pumpkinrecipe #thanksgiving #thanksgivingrecipe

Call me basic if you must, but pumpkin pie is honestly one of my favorite fall  / Thanksgiving desserts. My grandma used to make it every year and it was one of those things that I just always looked forward to. Admittedly though, in combination with having a one year old and not having a ton of extra energy outside of my day to day activities, I’m probably not going to be making any pies this year.

But I WILL be making these homemade white chocolate pumpkin pie candy cups again because they’re insanely easy, quick, and taste a whole lot the pumpkin pie my grandma used to make…only with the added bonus of white chocolate. Who wants the recipe?!
