Easy Pumpkin Bunting

A simple craft idea to transform your home

Bunting is an extremely quick and easy way to decorate your party venue. It’s also a great activity to get the kids involved in the party preparation!

For a super simple pumpkin bunting all you need is some orange card, a black felt tip pen, a piece of a string, and a little bit of creativity! Simply decorate your pumpkins with lots of expressive faces, cut them out, hole punch a small hole in the top, and thread the string through. It could not be easier and is a whole lot of fun to make!

Vampire Cookies

These are easy, quick, delicious and spectacularly creepy!

Ingredients

1 tube chocolate chip cookie dough

1 can vanilla frosting

Red food colouring

Mini marshmallows

Chopped almonds

Method

Heat the oven to 180 degrees C.

Roll the cookie dough into small balls and place on the baking sheet, and cook until golden, for about 12 minutes. Allow them to cool completely and then cut them in half.

Add a few drops of red food colouring into vanilla icing and stir until smooth. Spread a thin layer of red icing onto each cookie half.

Place mini marshmallows around the round edges of half of the halves. Place the remaining halves on top, then stick a slivered almond on each side to create fangs.
