Donut pumpkins! I mean, does it get any better than this? These creative no-carve pumpkins are so easy to make. Honestly, the hardest part is just trying not to eat them.
Donut even try to argue with how cute these are.
Okay, I know now that it’s November, it’s basically Christmas (#redcups are HEREEEE!), but I’m going to stretch out pumpkin season just a smidge longer. It lasts until AT LEAST Thanksgiving, so let’s all just calm down a little bit okay? However, feel free to play Christmas music WHILE painting your donut pumpkins. I find that totally acceptable.
These pumpkins were semi-moldy, which is half the reason why I decided they needed to be painted ASAP. Yes, I’m gross.
This DIY is about as simple as it gets, so a tutorial probably isn’t necessary, but because I like lists, I have to spell out every step.
- Pick the least moldy, most donut-shaped pumpkins at the patch.
- Ice them with your favorite flavor. (Dark chocolate and pink, duh. Sidenote: what flavor is pink, anyway?)
- Add SPRINKLES.
- Repeat. And enjoy your calorie-free donut pumpkins.
And that is IT!
Back porch punkin’ paintin’.
Although I have to admit, I added another step in the process that was completely pointless. I spray painted the pumpkins white first, because I really wanted the color to pop, you know? (And sometimes, I just need to spray paint something because it makes me feel like a real DIYer.) However, this was not the best choice because acrylic paint does not play nicely with spray paint, and I had to use about 4 frosting coats more than necessary, which would have been totally fine if it was on a real donut.
Look, I didn’t say I was an expert.
Trying to incorporate more “hole” foods in my diet.
BUT I did discover that these white chalk markers (<—scary affiliate link) are awesome for adding sprinkles or designs. So the takeaways: spray paint = bad, chalk markers = good, pink is a mystery flavor and donuts are the hole-iest of foods. #puns
