These handmade, terracotta pumpkins by Antrim-based maker Jemma Millen are full of character! The surface of the pumpkin is matt and unglazed, showing off the beautiful earthy red aesthetic of the earthenware clay. Available either as a hanging decoration with a green satin ribbon or as a tabletop decoration without a ribbon. (Jemma made the non-hanging option this year based on customer feedback)

Each pumpkin comes packaged in a recycled card sleeve with text detailing the origin of the 'Stingy Jack', an Irish myth about a man who invited the devil for a drink. Long story short, the tale leads to the origin of the Jack O Lantern, from carving scary faces into turnips (terrifying) to the pumpkin. Measuring the size of a Christmas bauble, each pumpkin is approx 7cm tall x 7cm in diameter. As this is a handmade item, dimensions can vary slightly. Not suitable for lighting up with a candle, stick to an actual pumpkin for this Halloween tradition.
