Jeepers Creepers Jack-O-Lanterns!

Whether you want to set the mood for your Trick-or-Treaters or give your party guests a wicked welcoming, a personalised Jack-O-Lantern is a must!

Follow our simple how to guide to great your perfect pumkin:

  1. Choose a large pumpkin and use a sharp serrated knife to cut off the crown.
  2. Using a large serving spoon, scoop out the seeds and fibres and discard. Then remove some of the flesh.
  3. With a marker pen, draw an outline of a face on the pumpkin. Use a small-serrated knife to cut out the eyes, nose and mouth. Always cut away from you in case the knife slips.
  4. Pop a tea light inside the pumpkin, light it and replace the crown
