It’s coming to that time of year again and oh yes, do I have a treat for you!!!
If you have been following the blog for a while then you will know how much I love, love making pumpkins and I get a real kick out of coming up with new designs, and this years will not disappoint!
I am talking about a show stopping pumpkin that wouldn’t look out of place in a John Lewis advert or a Homes & Gardens feature. What’s more, it only takes 30 minutes from start to finish which is another reason I love making them.
This bold fire and ice style uses beautiful silk fibres and wool tops for contrast and effect, finished off with a string of fiery beads for a touch of glamour.
