The days are long gone when pumpkin painting has to be the dreaded chore that it once was — the nasty, sticky pumpkin flesh — not to mention the danger of injury.
And unless you do your carving immediately before Halloween, you’ll have the seepage and the dreaded mold that inevitably sets in. Painted pumpkins are the rage, and it’s opened up a whole new world of decorating for those with artistic ability and creative minds.

Stack them on top of each other and display your house number on your front porch or in your yard.
