Target is now selling Disney no-carve pumpkin kits for a mess-free Halloween

The spookiest time of the year, Halloween, is almost upon us. You all know exactly what that means: plenty of trick-or-treating, candy, scary movies, and fun costumes. But one of the main things that people neglect is the decorations.

Yes, many houses these days don't even bother to put up Halloween decorations, and instead, the interior and exterior look more-or-less the same as ever.

Check out this recipe for pumpkin-inspired mac 'n' cheese bites below:

One of the most neglected Halloween decorations is the carved pumpkin. They're an iconic part of the holiday, and yet the actual process of carving on is, let's be honest, a bit of a headache.

First of all, it's messy, and you can guarantee that you'll end up with a sticky puddle of juice and wads of pulp all over your kitchen the minute you stick a knife into it. Then there's the fact that, unless you're an artist, they never look quite as good as envisaged.

So if that's been getting you down then I have good news for you: Target has announced that they will be selling an impressive range of Disney-themed no-carve pumpkin kits for Halloween this year, and suffice to say, they look pretty awesome.

Target is offering pumpkins shaped like a number of well-known Disney characters, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Woody from Toy Story, Cinderella (in her pumpkin-shaped horse-drawn carriage of course) and Vampirina from the eponymous popular Disney kids TV show.

The kits are currently retailing for $10 each, which is a bargain considering how much hassle they'll spare customers. Sadly though, their obvious appeal has already proven popular with online shoppers, and the selection is currently sold out.

There's no doubt that Target will be restocking them soon though.

The kits come with everything you need to turn a plain-old orange pumpkin into something awesome and eye-catching. For example, the kits apparently include a selection of paints to help transform it, as well as plastic ''push-ins'' to help bring your pumpkin to life!

This isn't the only awesome Halloween offer to come from Target lately. The retailer also recently announced that they intend to offer customers a range of Halloween-themed succulents; perfect for decorating the interior of your home with.

The Hyde & EEK! Boutique is selling special succulents shaped like skulls, ghosts, and ghouls. The plants themselves range in height from 2.5 to 5.25 inches; great if you want to add a splash of colour to your desk, table, or mantlepiece.

Not only that, but Target is also selling a number of special costumes for children who use wheelchairs. As of now, there are two options available: a pirate costume and a princess costume, both of which come complete with materials to turn the wheelchair into an enchanted castle or a nautical galleon respectively.

The item description for the pirate costume states: "This boys’ pirate costume is thoughtfully designed with openings in the back that lend ease of dressing, along with leg openings that are wide enough to put the pants on while keeping shoes on — perfect for giving kids who use wheelchairs an extra hand and a sense of comfort."

Meanwhile, the princess costume reads: "This Halloween wheelchair costume is designed to look just like a princess carriage, with a purple-blue and grey colour scheme adorned with intricately detailed scrollwork — it even includes decorative covers for the wheelchair for a complete finish. A simple way to dress up most sizes of wheelchairs, it can easily be attached using the hook-and-loop closures for a secure fit."

I don't know about you guys, but I'm seriously considering picking up one of these awesome kits in the near future. They're ideal for a neat-freak like me!
