I saw the hallowed out orange idea, filled with yogurt or jello. I tried it, but the orange looked shriveled the next day (not very appetizing). I read about the idea of string cheese attached to a pretzel stick for a witch's broom on the internet? Anyone ever tried that? Any other ideas? Thanks.
apples decorated like pumpkins
Are clementines out yet? They could be cute small jack-o-lanterns, and they peel easy. Is it for young children? Or cheese & crackers, cut pumpkins out of orange cheese and ghosts out of white cheese. I've also seen soft cheese made into pumpkin shapes with a pretzel stick for the stem. Or caramel apples.
