Go glam with these 3 easy DIY pumpkin ideas

Ditch the carving tools and dazzle your trick-or-treaters this Halloween with these pretty, no-carve pumpkins.

“Good Morning America” worked with author, caterer and event planner Mary Giuliani to pull off three creations.

Here’s how to do it.

Play with pastels

What you need:
Matte paint in pastel-y shades. We chose lavender, sage and power pink and blue.
Paint sponges.

Mix white paint with pastel paint to achieve a lighter color.
Coat pumpkins and gords in paint holding the stem down.
Set to dry.

Paint more than one coat after drying for maximum coverage.

Gourd-geous gems

What you need:
Metallic paints.
Paint sponges.
Add rhinestones.

Paint pumpkin with silver or bronze paint.
Let dry.
Add some bling.

Try adhesive rhinestones to avoid gluing.

All that glitters

What you need:
Masking tape.
Mod Podge or glue.
Glitter (any color of your choice).
Circle paint sponge.

For stripes-
Tape vertical stripes on pumpkin.
Paint Mod Podge or glue onto opposite sides of the tape.
Add lots of glitter.
Peel off tape.

For dots-
Paint dots of glue onto pumpkin using the circle paint sponge.
Add more glitter.

Work with glitter last. Sparkles may be the most fun, but they’re the messiest.
