5 ways to decorate your Halloween pumpkin, beach-style

Think you need to be at home to enjoy Halloween? Think again!

You can certainly have a great time at the beach while still getting in the spirit (yes, pun intended) of All Hallow’s Eve.

The following are 5 ways you can jazz up that pumpkin to celebrate the spookiest time of the year at the beach.

  1. Decorate your pumpkins with a beach theme

Give your pumpkins a beachy vibe by painting them white, brown, and/or blue. Decorate with sand dollars and assorted shells.

  1. Try different cutouts

Instead of a face, try carving shapes befitting the setting. Some ideas are a boat, an anchor, a palm tree, a starfish, a seahorse, a fish, stylized waves, shells, etc. You’re only limited by your imagination… and your carving skills.

  1. Cool off your drinks

Instead of making a jack-o’-lantern, fashion a drink cooler out of your pumpkin. Fill with ice and keep your favorite drinks nice and cool.

  1. Make a substitution

Forego the pumpkin and use a pineapple instead. Imagine a menacing jack-o’-lantern’s face carved on tropical fruit. Your family and friends will get a kick out of that.

  1. Use sand

Of course, you can get creative with what’s already all around you at the beach. Craft some spook-tastic jack-o’-lanterns in the sand.
