It's Half Term, are your kids getting bored already? Are you desperately trying to find entertaining things to do? Don't worry you are not alone, so am I !!
Halloween is a week today and pumpkins will need to be carved at some point. We have put together a few ideas that will make your pumpkins stand out from the rest AND keep the kids busy (for a while anyway!)
This is such a simple and yet effective way to decorate your pumpkin. Just pop out to the garden or local park to collect a range of colourful leaves, bring them home, dry them and press them. Then simply paint your pumpkin with chalk paint and once dry use clear PVA glue to découpage the pressed leaves to the outside or your pumpkin. (read more www.countryliving.com)

You can't really get simpler than this design which just uses a matte coloured paint and drawing pins! Jus paint your pumpkin in your desired colour using a matte finish paint, then write your spooky word with an erasable wax pencil. Once done use a hammer to tap in the drawing pins along the script. (The shorter the word, the better as it is easier to read.) read more www.countryliving.com
