Why carve a pumpkin when you can decorate it easily with chalk? No, pumpkins don’t work like chalkboards by nature but you can change that with a little paint.

Chalkboard paint allows you to turn anything into a chalkboard, and as you can see from the image above that can make for a stylish Halloween pumpkin. If you don’t like carving due to the mess, a lack of skills, or you just don’t care for the look, consider this as an alternative. It’s an attractive option and can be a fun, safe way for kids to participate as well. Plus, with chalk, you can make mistakes and correct them easily.
