Easiest No-Carve Pumpkin Idea: Balloon Dipped Pumpkins DIY

In theory, I like the idea of pumpkin carving around Halloween time, but I just can't bring myself to clean up the mess (and spend the time) to do it. So, I typically stick to no-carve pumpkin ideas instead. And this year, I have a new one that I thought I'd share because it's SO insanely easy!

I don't want to toot my own horn or anything, BUT this might just be the easiest no-carve pumpkin tutorial ever. And possibly the quickest too....considering it takes about 60 seconds to complete. Toot toot. Whoops! Want to make your own?

Here's how to make balloon dipped pumpkins in 60 seconds or less...


  • balloons
  • scissors
  • mini pumpkins

How To:

1. Cut the stem off a balloon, so you're just left with the larger bulb shape.

2. Pull the balloon over the bottom of a miniature pumpkin. Adjust the balloon to get the desired look. You can pull the balloon all the way up to the top and cover the pumpkin completely or lower it for a 'dipped' look.

Would love to try this idea with pattern balloons too, like these marbled ones. What about you?

Pretty simple, right? Here's how they turned out...
