My Top Three Pumpkin Cheats

All you have to do is cut out all the pulp and then hammer a cookie cutter all the way through! You'll be left with pumpkin 'star ' - or whatever shape you use, that you can pop in the oven for 30 minutes for a tasty treat. 

Just peel the skin off before eating!

Studs.These are so easy, just push them in to the design you want. They were a bit too satisfying and i ended up going over the lid.

Last but not least chalk paint! It covers amazingly well. Below is just one coat.
