As Halloween approaches, you may be tempted to try your hand at carving crazy and spooky designs into your pumpkins. But if you'd like to try something a bit more adventurous, here are some unique ideas for spicing up this holiday tradition!
Pumpkin Spice Latte Face Mask
Yes, you read that correctly. You can now apply your PSL directly to your face, and it actually has a number of health benefits! This recipe uses ingredients that you would typically find in your local cafe too!
Turns out pumpkins have a ton of vitamins and enzymes that revitalize your skin. Coffee and brown sugar have long been known to have exfoliating and moisturizing properties, and a cinnamon-honey mixture will add much needed antibacterial protection as you head into cold and flu season.
Melted Crayon Decoration
This fabulous idea is definitely easier than having to carve out a whole pumpkin and deal with all the 'guts', and it's incredible to look at! The colors look fantastic on either white or orange pumpkins and it doesn't require a lot of materials to make either.
All you need are a variety of wax crayons, some tacky glue, a hair dryer, and of course your Halloween pumpkin! Simply glue the crayons to the top of the holiday gourd and then turn the hair dryer up to max and watch as the colors melt down the sides!
Pumpkin Beer Keg
If you've ever wanted to infuse that classic fall flavor into your favorite beers and ciders, then this is the easy-to-DIY way to do so!
You begin by clearing out the inside of the pumpkin as usual, removing the stringy pulp, and then make a small hole in the side, about a half inch across but no larger! Next, simply drive a small tap into the side of the pumpkin and make sure it is flush to the sides of the hole so that there will be no leaks later on.
Now simply pour in your choice of beverage into the top of the pumpkin, replace the top, and enjoy your homemade keg!
