We’re a big fan of no carve pumpkins in my house! We’ve made everything from unicorn pumpkins to Frankenstein pumpkins and we’re not slowing down now!

 No Carve Bumblebee Pumpkin

This year we made a cute butterfly pumpkin after I was inspired by butterfly wings that I found at a dollar store. It turned out so cute that when I saw bumblebee wings the next time, I picked up a pair of those too. I thought our butterfly might to have a bumblebee pumpkin to keep her company! I grabbed a few more styrofoam pumpkins while I was there too.
