Comments: Wonderfully Fun! This book has 80+ unique and creative ideas for decorating everyone's favorite symbol of the season--the pumpkin! While some feature the traditional carved features, there are many other fresh, new ways to bring your Halloween characters to life. But jack-o'-lanterns are only some of the great ideas to be found in this book. Many designs can be used throughout the season--I especially liked the turkey and the football player pumkins. There is even a pink flamingo! The directions for each project are precise and easy to follow and there is a wealth of general information to get you started. If you like to decorate and you love autumn like I do, then this is the book for you.
