If the thing that scares you most about Halloween is the thought of carving a pumpkin then this post is for you. Loads of amazing ideas for the ambitious and the amateur – and at least half of them are ‘no carve’ and yet completely brilliant.
A work of twittery magic.
Spooooooky. Impressive and not as tricky as it looks…..

Something for grown ups…
