Cowboy-Boot-and-Initial-Studded-Pumpkins-by-Horses-HeelsIf carving seems like a mess and maybe too challenging, try paint and a simple stud design.

These are pumpkins I created last year. I painted my pumpkins white with a few coats of Martha Stewart paint and topped the stems off with silver. Silver studs were used to create initials and silver cowboy boots were painted on the biggest pumpkin.
