I love having carved or decorated pumpkins, but I hate the mess. Fortunately, there are a number of Ann Arbor Pumpkin Decorating Events this season.
Ann Arbor Pumpkin Decorating
I love having decorated pumpkins, but we always seem to run out of time. Plus, pumpkin carving creates a huge mess.
There have been years that we have carved our pumpkins right before trick or treat. Other years, we haven’t carved pumpkins.
Fortunately, there are a number of events that include pumpkin decorating or carving. Mark your calendar now. Then, let someone else deal with the mess. Plus, you’ll set aside the time to decorate your pumpkins.
