Hallowe’en is once again almost upon us.

My personal, favourite time of year; all of the fun and none of the stress.

Plus…there’s candy.

But one of the hardest tasks can sometimes be carving that pumpkin, especially if you don’t have much in the way of artistic ability.

All that scraping and thinning-out of the shell in order to get it just the right thickness to carve with ease.

The good news is there are a lot of different ways to decorate a pumpkin for Hallowe’en that doesn’t necessarily have to be a lot of work or look like everyone else’s in the neighbourhood.

Thanks to sites like Pintrest, you can have the sweetest gourd on your street!

One of the groove-yardiest pumpkins out there this year is the one made with melting crayons.

It might be a bit messy and will  need some parental supervision to get the crayons attached and work the blow dryer.

Give it a try!

If you have smaller kids and don’t want them running around the house with a knife try some of these safer ideas for jack-o-lanterns.

How about this Candy Corn Pumpkin?

There are also great instructional videos if you need some additional guidance and ideas.

 

And just a friendly reminder.
