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!
Pre-cut foam kits are fantastic for a pain-free decorating experience. Not to mention easier to clean up than paint.
Take kit decorating to another level with specialized kits that fit your personality!
Electric carving knives allow you to carve like you used to without the pain!
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.
How will you decorate your pumpkin this Halloween?
