Halloween is here! I think it’s my favourite time of year because it combines all of my favourite things; dressing up, black humour and junk food. Winner.
Here are a few Halloween ideas from our previous posts that might add a little bit of spook to your October weekend. Mwa ha ha haaaaa!
Want to make a Halloween costume quickly out of stuff you already have? Well, try this frighteningly simple DIY. You could even get a little skeleton to help you out if they’re any good with scissors. Plus, you can just as easily do an adult-sized one.
Don’t risk your pumpkin coming to a grisly end when the lid falls inside and snuffs out the candle. Start by cutting the hole in the bottom instead of having a lid. This will make it easier to light the candle too.
Because gorging on sweets is not enough… baking spooky treats is obviously necessary! Starting with… ghostly cupcakes. The base is a simple cupcake recipe, the ghost is a sweet meringue icing.
No need to invest in face paint. I’m assuming most of you own a (probably underused) smokey eye palette, a red or pink lipstick and a black eye pencil as standard. If you do, you’re pretty much in business!
This cocktail vodka martini is not for the faint of hearts. But if you have a taste for the macabre, add some fresh radish eyeballs for an extra crunchy, bitter kick.
Happy Halloween mortals!
