Now that November is upon us, summer feels like a distant memory but there is still plenty to look forward to in the autumn months. Thoughts of cosy nights in with hot chocolate, the leaves turning yellow and orange and Bonfire Night soon followed by Christmas. With Bonfire Night right around the corner you might be planning on visiting your local fireworks display, hosting your own fireworks party or perhaps you want to stay warm and cosy indoors. Whatever you plan to do, here’s a creative idea you might like the look of.
This DIY comes from Better Homes and Gardens and it’s a great alternative to carving out a spooky face in your pumpkin. You can download a template for the flames from BHG but what’s so great about this project is that the shape of the flames don’t have to be perfect so you can easily draw these out freehand without worrying too much about what they look like.
Do you like this idea? Or do you have another idea of what to carve in to your pumpkin?

This chocolate recipe was created by Martha Stewart and you’ve got to admit these ghosts look pretty yummy! You can visit her site for the recipe and there are many more Halloween themed recipes there if you want to try making some more treats.
What have you got planned for Halloween?
I thought I’d post this cute Halloween idea as it’s a little different but simple and stylish – exactly what we like here at Peach Blossom!
To make a pumpkin like this follow these guidelines:
Lay lace fabric over the pumpkin, gathering it at the bottom with your hand, to determine the location for the stem opening. Remove the lace. Cut a small circle (for the stem) with scissors and lay the lace over the pumpkin, inserting the stem through the opening. Gather the lace at the pumpkin bottom, trimming the excess, and secure the lace in place using running stitches in a wheel-spoke pattern.
You don’t have to use lace, why not try it with some material you might have lying around the house? Happy crafting!
