Halloween - Witches, Pumpkins (and Potatoes)
For the first time ever (as far as I can remember anyway) I have created a (very tiny) Halloween department.
I must be honest, I didn't plan this. I just happened to notice one day that I have a lovely card with a witch's cottage on it, a few felt decorations, and a mouse carrying a pumpkin. So, voila - a Halloween department is born!
But wait, there's more, because I also have a Halloween crafting tip to offer....
Don't have a pumpkin? Don't worry. Simply create a potato lantern instead! Yes really - just find the biggest potato you can, do the carving bit and pop a candle light inside. In a pinch it really does work - and it creates a lovely baked potato smell.
(I know this because it's what I used to do when I was little. Apparently my parents did not believe in buying unnecessary large decorative vegetables when a potato would do.)
Every so often I pick a theme and commit to post daily on the Cottontails social media pages - it keeps me motivated and connected (even if I do regret it when I'm trekking over to the office late at night after a long shift in my other job)
Anyway, I am part way through an Autumnal Bunnies theme - so follow us on any of the socials below for daily posts of bunnies with acorns. berries, pumpkins... you get the idea!
