    Halloween crafts: carved squash centerpieces Just when I thought I’d seen enough squashes and gourds adorning a Thanksgiving table, I came up with an idea of carving butternut squashes into beautiful flowers.  I’ve always fancied the butternut squash for its shape, color, and density (apart from being so incredibly delicious!).  Butternut squashes are adorably unique.  They also happen to have a substantial amount of flesh, are considerably less hollow than most gourds, and make for a divine base for carving.

But it’s boring to just make steam buns… so we started thinking what characters which were mostly white and easy to make. My boyfriend was looking through the games he owns and came up with two characters. A moogle from Final Fantasy, and Boo Ghost from Super Mario Brothers.   Food crafts: Moogle
