When it comes to pumpkins, I much prefer finding fun new ways to decorate them versus carving them. I do love the pumpkin seeds, but can do without the mess. This year, I have been working on sets of fun no carve pumpkins. First up are these No Carve Frozen Pumpkins featuring both an Elsa pumpkin in typical blue snowflake fashion and an Anna pumpkin with her signature pink cloak! These pumpkins are both really easy to make, my 8-year-old made Anna almost all by herself.
No Carve Frozen Pumpkins
I used foam pumpkins for these No Carve Frozen Pumpkins, but you can easily do these with a real pumpkin, I just didn’t want to throw away my work at the end of the season. Of course… now I have to find a place to store them.
Elsa No Carve Pumpkin :
You will need:
- a teal pumpkin (I found mine at Oriental Trading here)
- a blue tiara and thin tutu
- stick on gems in blue and white
- snowflake buttons
- hot glue
This Elsa Pumpkin is so easy to make and is perfect for any Frozen fan! First, you want to cover your pumpkin in rhinestones. If you bought the stick on ones, stick them in lines down the sides of the pumpkin, alternating between blue and white. If you bought another kind, you have to hot glue them down the sides. Every three or four lines of jewels, add a lines of snowflake buttons. Then repeat 3-4 lines of jewels again before another line of snow flake buttons. Repeat until you have covered the pumpkin.
Break the back head band type pieces off of your tiara. This will help it sit on the pumpkin better. Hot glue the tiara right in front of the pumpkin stem. If you want you can add more gems and snowflakes to the tiara too!

Add a line of hot glue around the bottom of the pumpkin and then place it on top of the tutu. This will glue them together, making the pumpkin easier to move! After this step your Elsa pumpkin is finished and it is on to your Anna pumpkin!
Anna No Carve Pumpkin:
You will need:
- a pumpkin spray painted black
- paint brush
- yellow, green and pink paint
- a pink tiara
- a piece of magenta fleece
- Pom pom trim
No Elsa pumpkin is complete without an Anna pumpkin! This darling Anna pumpkin is mostly paint with a little bit of sewing thrown in. If you aren’t comfortable with a needle and thread, you can skip adding the pom pom trim the the fleece cape for an easier project!
Spray paint your pumpkin a nice black before you start. It will probably need several coats to completely cover. After your pumpkin is dry add the green leaves similar to the style below. My 8-year-old had a blast painting this pumpkin. I just pulled up a picture of Anna’s dress and she made it happen!
After you have painted the green vines on her dress, add the tulips at the top and then the dots of color with the back of your paint brush. When this is done, add a line of gold paint around the entire design.
Break the head band pieces off of the back of the tiara and then hot glue it in front of the stem. Add a piece of magenta fleece to the pumpkin, with or without trim and secure with a safety pin.
