Yet another reason why we’re swooning for Fall? Pumpkins! From warm pumpkin spice lattès to fragrant pumpkin-scented candles – we’re kind of pumpkin-obsessed.  Then we got to thinking: what are some fun, simple and creative ways to switch up our Fall décor this year? This Halloween, we challenge you to swap your regular carving with a few of these unique ideas. The best part? These no-carve designs will last for weeks instead of days.
