Learn how to sew a pumpkin! Aren’t they cute? These are made from old t-shirts! I love that they make great Autumn/ Thanksgiving decor, but are also just perfect for Halloween too. Top tip: the smaller ones are easier to sew (it doesn’t take much sewing, but you do need to push the needle through from top to bottom).

No collection “of” is complete, without a famous Corner Bookmark! They are so easy and fun to make.. and you literally can decorate them for all occasions.. Like we have done here with these easy Jack O’Lantern Bookmarks!

A bit like the Satsumas above – never understimate the power of a simple Jack O’Lantern Face. I don’t know why Terry’s chocolate doesn’t make these commercially (yet!). Such a simple idea for Halloween. My lucky husband always gets one at Halloween!
