If you’re like me, you probably go to the store each year and buy a Halloween pumpkin carving decorating kit. I’ve been doing it every year since the kids were little. But, if you’re like me, you probably have to buy a new one each year because either the pieces break or they get lost. This year, put together your own kit from what you already have at home. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

So, what exactly do you need to decorate your pumpkins? A lot will depend on whether you will be carving, painting, using markers or a little bit of both. Here’s what I suggest. You can adjust it depending on how you decorate and the age of your child.
- An apron or an old over sized shirt (This apron is so cute.)
- A knife to cut off the top (Please use a safety knife.)
- A strong spoon to scoop the seeds. My preference is an ice cream scoop.
- Dry erase marker (This lets you correct mistakes before you start carving.)
- Halloween Cookie Cutters and a rubber mallet (so much easier than carving)

- Glow in the dark paint
- Sponges and brushes to paint with
- Masking tape (to edge your design)
- A glow stick (safer than a candle)
- Sharpie markers (for decorating)
- Glow in the dark stickers (for little ones to decorate)
- Glitter paint (to paint the stem)
- Oversized googly eyes
It’s best to collect all of these items and keep them in one place so you will have your Halloween pumpkin carving decorating kit ready to go for next year.
