Carving and decorating pumpkins is a Halloween right of passage wether you are in Southwest Florida, the Midwest or Northeast. I carved pumpkins as a kid and still do as an adult with no kids around as an excuse. It’s messy, it’s fun, it’s creative and it’s a good excuse to have a party. To help get you in the spirit, here are some cool creative pumpkin decorating ideas for Halloween and TikTok Tuesday. Because of the humidity in Southwest Florida, pumpkins don’t seem to last long once they are carved. They can quickly cave in to a rotted mess. However, there are some unique ideas here that buy you a little more time for your fall and Halloween gourd decor.

You don’t have to get as elaborate as this when it comes to decorating and carving pumpkins. Here you will find some fun and easy ideas to make your holiday more festive

From the time the calendar flipped over to October, my TikTok feed has been full of videos offering ideas for unique fall decor including the use of pumpkins. I love the idea of an elaborate carving, but never quite execute it. Perhaps giving it one go once a year does not offer enough practice.

Although it is Halloween, none of these videos are scary and/or creepy. If you want some of that, check out last week’s TikTok Tuesday post here. Yikes. You don’t have to have a TikTok account to view the videos. Just scroll down and hit play from this post. All videos are office and kid friendly. There are some really easy ideas as well as some that take a little more effort. You might learn a new trick or two. Check out these cool creative pumpkin decorating ideas for Halloween.
