This is one of the funnest, most festive projects I have made to date!  What screams Fall more than a pumpkin?  Well, now you can use the quintessential October mascot for your favorite beverage!  I filled mine with beer for our weekend get together with friends, but you really could use any type of liquid.  Think kid’s punch for your Halloween festivities or even an Autumn Cider
