Want to transform your home into a haunted house?
Or maybe you’re wanting to decorate for a Halloween party? Either way, we’ve got you covered!
Paper bats may not sound overly scary, but they’re super easy to make and if you’ve got kids they can easily get involved.
All you need is black paper/card, a pencil, scissors, googly eyes, a white crayon, and glue.
Full instructions can be found here.
Do you have a few mason jars sitting around? Well, let’s turn them into mummy luminaries! If not, don’t worry, you can purchase some Yoplait Oui yogurt (available at Foster’s) and use the jars once you’ve finished the delicious stuff inside!
For this, all you need are jars, bandage googly eyes, and either a tealight candle or flameless electric candle. Click here to make your own.
Wanting to give a seriously eerie welcome to your guests, how about bleeding candles. Yes, these look creepy and won’t take you long to do. All you’ll need is both white and red candles, cut tacks, push pins, tinfoil, and parchment paper. To get started, click here!
Planning on carving your own pumpkin this year?
We have your traditional Halloween pumpkins, Tiger Stripe pumpkins, Sparkler pumpkins, and Blanco pumpkins, ready in store, for you to get creative with!
We’ve also compiled a list of tips and tricks for the haunting night.
- Stay safe around roads. Avoid crisscrossing back and forth across the street, work your way up one side of the street, and then start on the other.
- Carry a white bag or pillowcase for your candy. You can even add some reflective tape, to help motorists see you for when it gets dark.
- Dress for the weather, ensure you have an umbrella for any unexpected downpours.
- Avoid visiting houses that are not well lit and never go inside a stranger’s house.
- Make sure you carry a flashlight and a cell phone.
- If you’re expecting trick or treaters, turn on your outdoor lights.
- Consider giving treats other than candy, such as stickers, for children with food allergies.
