Through simple illustrated steps, maker Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell shows how to create this stunning Hallowe'en carving.
This lovely Hansel and Gretel house design sits in a spooky wood – you can almost imagine a witch creeping around in the rooms behind the windows!
This project is suitable for any large, soft-fleshed pumpkin or watermelon.
This project is taken from Decorating Pumpkins & Gourds by Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell, published by CICO Books (£8.99)
