How to Carve a Pumpkin Teapot

Are you looking for something a little different for Halloween this year? Are you worried your ghoulish guests will go away thirst? Well look no further – this spooky pumpkin tea set is guaranteed to delight for friends and have all the neighbourhood spooks lined up at the door hankering after a good old brew.
 

Pumpkin Teaset – perfect for any friendly ghosts

Whilst carving pumpkins I had a brilliant idea for making them even more fun. The pumpkin looked the exact same shape as my tea pot. Being something of a tea lover it seemed a really good idea.

Anyway if you want to make a pumpkin tea set (though I’m not sure anyone other than me would want to) carve your pumpkin as normal and add some pumpkin coloured playdoh or modelling clay to make the spot and handle. We used orange and brown playdoh. Carve a few oranges, this needs a very sharp knife and is very fiddly. Add handles. Then Bob’s your Uncle a spooky tea set for all your ghostly guests to drink out of. Just don’t try to really make tea in it.

The writing on the front is my blog address – all those children popping round to get some free treats – it seemed like too good an opportunity to do a bit of sneaky blog promotion to miss! Here is how the pumpkin looked  at night.
