So, if you are totally drained and don't feel like carving a pumpkin, why not attack it with a permanent marker? That's right, a pumpkin doesn't have to be carved or painted on, it can just be made totally cool with a Sharpie. Use a fine, wide or regular tip...whatever floats your boat!
I simple drew different designs like skulls and crossbones, words, a spooky tree, swirls, stars, tombstones, and more. Just use your natural doodling style and have fun! You will prob. want to spray it with some spray sealer so the designs don't rub off or get weathered.
