BURLINGTON, N.C. -- It's that time, pumpkins everywhere down at the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market. There are the gorgeous grays, creamy whites, even some that are pink-ish. Big ones, tiny ones, tastier ones that are good for pies. Some look like they've even got peanuts glued on them.

With all of them, you could carve away, or you could get creative knife-free.

"For me, carving a pumpkin is yucky, it gets all over your table, your pumpkin," said All She Wrote Notes' designer Maghon Taylor. "I came up with this idea of calligraphy on pumpkins and have been posting about it ever since."

Taylor teaches people how to creatively decorate their pumpkins with fun and fancy writing. She says the secret to making it look good is to write the word in one full stroke and to make the down stroke thicker.
