Over the years I’ve blogged about a fair few halloween projects, so here’s a selection of my favourite halloween posts from my archives to help you have a fun and crafty holiday! There’s only five days left until the day itself (yippee!) but there’s still plenty of time to make a costume or decorate your place for a party. There are lots of projects on my to-do list for this week, and I haven’t even carved my first pumpkin yet!!
DIY Pumpkin Costume
In my third year of uni I went as a pumpkin for halloween. I loved this costume, I think pumpkins are my favourite halloween character. This was actually one of my very first blog posts, and the pictures were taken in the dark on my phone camera so the quality isn’t great, but the tutorial works! If you’re still stuck for costume ideas I’ve also blogged about how I made James’ carrot costume, my DIY lion costume and how to dress up like a power puff girl.
If you want your decorations to make a big impact, but you don’t want to have to make a tonne of different things then this is the project for you! All you need is four little ghost scarecrows, and your house or front garden will look very spooooky. I stuck these in my front garden last year and the trick or treaters loved them.
This project involves sticking a flock of bats to your walls and all you need is some scissors, black card and blue tack. This is such a quick and easy way to make any room scarier, and you can use them every year! I’ve stuck my bats to my sitting room wall this year and they look right at home.
Okay okay, so this isn’t technically a craft project but you’re going need something spooky to play in the background whilst you’re cutting out bats and sticking eyes onto ghosts! Check out this post for my favourite halloween films and tv.
