Don’t Let Arthritis Keep You From Decorating Your Halloween Pumpkin


Don’t Let Arthritis Keep You From Decorating Your Halloween Pumpkin

Does just thinking of carving a pumpkin send shivers down your spine?  It does mine! Both psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia make holding a knife and cutting into a pumpkin a torturous event.  However, just because you and I may not be able to carve a pumpkin it doesn’t mean that we can’t take part in decorating them for the Halloween.  Below are 5 ways to deck your doorstep with some ghoulish gourds.


Paint the night

Who says the only way to decorate a pumpkin is by cutting into it?  Not me!!! Use paint and glitter to create beautiful works of art.  Use a florescent paint and a black light on your front porch to liven things up!

Foamy fun

Pre-cut foam kits are fantastic for a pain-free decorating experience.  Not to mention easier to clean up than paint.

Enlist an evil assistant

Last but not least, ask your child, spouse, friend, or family member to team up with you.  Working together you can save your hands from unnecessary pain.

    I love these ideas, Cynthia! We are in a 3rd floor condo now so I was kinda relieved I didn’t have to do the pumpkin thing but you have me running ideas now for one on the balcony!
