HOW TO MAKE YOUR PUMPKINS POP

Create an eye-catching Halloween display with these fun pumpkin-decorating ideas

Halloween is just around the corner, and if you fancy a change from the usual pumpkin carving, try painting yours instead. Available in store, our great-value medium orange pumpkins (they’re just 65p each) make the perfect canvas for some spookily cool creations. To create a bold finish, try using neon paint, and experiment with different designs: splatter the paint, Jackson Pollock-style, across the pumpkin; draw graphic stripes and shapes; paint a thick layer across one half and let it drip down; or go for spooky faces. Arrange on your doorstep or by the fireplace for a bold effect.
