Halloween is my favorite holiday. I mean lets face it, I love any reason to play dress up. OK maybe it's the candy. I revel in any excuse to eat sour candy and blow pops and have it be socially acceptable.
I carve a pumpkin every year. Some have been better then others. It never occurred to me to try out a no-carve pumpkin, until I saw these adorable ones on Real Simple. They are so creative and look super easy...

Chalkboard Pumpkins. I am such a chalkboard fan, for example here. This might just make use of my left over chalkboard spray paint!
Plaid Pumpkins. Are you mad for plaid? Me too. With a little tape and dry erase markers you can impress the neighbors with these beauties.
