Good morning Tombow fans! Beth here on the blog today to share some quick and easy no carve monster pumpkins featuring Dual Brush Pens and one of my favorites – Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive! This is a great project to complete with the kiddos in just an afternoon. Let your creativity go to make the scariest, kookiest or pretties monsters!
STEP ONE: Drawing
Sketch out some monstrous features on plain paper with MONO Drawing Pencil 3H grade. This harder lead will allow you to sketch easily without a lot of erasing needed, since your lines will be lighter. I love drawing all of the features independently and then mixing and matching later.
STEP TWO: Tracing
Ink in all of the sketches with the bullet tip of Dual Brush Pen N15.
Next, I used my Cricut Bright Pad to trace all of my monster features onto heavy weight 110 lb. cardstock with the bullet and fine tip of the MONO Twin Permanent Marker. I love to draw a double sketchy line when using extra fine tipped markers to create added interest.
STEP THREE: Coloring
Pick your favorite colors and dig in! I used the Dual Brush Pens to give my monster features the added POP of color that they needed!
I used some unconventional color combinations for my quick and easy no carve monster pumpkins, which I just LOVE!
STEP FOUR: Cutting
Next, cut out all monster features. This is the FUN part – mix and match the features to create the perfectly creepy, cute or funny monster!
STEP FIVE: Adhering
Using Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive, roll to apply then swipe to the side for a clean application.
Here are the finished No Carve Monster Pumpkins!
I really love the way that my Quick and Easy No Carve Monster Pumpkins turned out. This would be a great project to complete in just about 30 minutes with the kiddos. Use my project as a jumping off point to showcase your Tombow creativity and tag us with #Tombow or #TombowUSA.

Thanks for stopping by!
Love your creativity Beth!! So fun and the pumpkin doesn’t rot either!!
Nice alternative idea and how quick it could be done! No yucky sticky mess.
There is only one downside. No pumpkin seeds (yet) to toast.
