i didn't want it stolen. or kicked in
We have to bring ours in at night anyways, last year we had our smashed the night before Halloween, so now I don't give them the chance.
no, seriously. give them the chance. but make them sorry they took it.
i unfortunately don't have pictures of it, but here's a pumpkin mod that only requires some orange oil paint. try to match the natural color of the pumpkin, and cover that sucker. it takes days for the oil paint to completely dry, so once a day or so put some fresh paint on to make sure it stays wet (you might want to wipe it down with a wet paper towel between coats so it doesn't get too thick though.) if anyone picks it up to steal or smash it, they'll ruin their clothes while they're at it.
