Halloween Fun: How to decorate your pumpkin

Okay all … With just a little over 2 weeks left until Halloween it’s time to stop procrastinating and kick it into high gear. Every fashionista knows that going all out on the decoration is a total must. After a week of getting distracted by work, useless reality T.V shows, and planning a trip to Disneyland (okay and maybe a little shopping) I finally made it to the pumpkin patch today. This year I made the decision NOT to carve my pumpkin but to decorate it instead. I ran across these images last year on Lauren Conrad’s blog (after carving my pumpkins of course) and immediately knew I had to try out a few of these ideas the following year. So here you go …. A few of my favorite ways to decorate a pumpkin without the mess. Which look is your fave?

And for a little added fun, here’s me picking out our pumpkins this year. Ignore the hair, it was a little windy.
