Melted Crayon Pumpkin

Decorating with pumpkins throughout the fall season is a whole lot of fun, but once you carve them, the pumpkins only last a few days at the most -- and that certainly is not fun. Besides, carving pumpkins can be incredibly messy and hard to do with little ones whom you don't want around sharp objects. However, there are loads of ways to decorate your pumpkins that are not only easy and fun, but also are a reflection of your style whether you prefer artsy, chic, or country. Here are just a few the ones that we love.

Melted Crayon Pumpkin

Crayons are a part of life when you've got kids. Use them in this new and exciting way to make a colorful and artistic pumpkin that is sure to wow. Alexa Westerfield of The Swell Life made this pumpkin that is literally dripping in color using glue, crayons, and a hair dryer. While we love this whole box of crayons approach, we also like that you can easily customize the look using a myriad of color combinations.
