So it’s nearly that time of year again, where people all over the world celebrate Halloween. Adults get dressed up in their favourite costumes and go out and party, while children go trick or treating.
If you’re looking to decorate your home or place of work with spooky Halloween decorations, then why not make them yourselves instead of spending a fortune? Go on, create that sinister atmosphere, invite your friends around and watch their reactions!
Choose a ripe pumpkin and draw the design on the front.
Draw a keyhole shape above the pumpkin for the head with your pencil and ensure it is large enough to fit your hand through.
Lift the lid and slice any stringy pieces from the underside into the bowl and scoop the seeds out.
Smooth and stick the ghost template above the pumpkin, outline the entire pattern with holes and take the template off.
Join the dots with your small saw or serrated knife using a sawing motion, but do not slice through it – ensure you have adult supervision whilst carrying out this task. Keep following the dotted outline until the entire design has been carved.
Light the tea light, put it at the bottom of the pumpkin, and place the lid back on.
