Halloween is possibly one of the most fun and playful holidays of the year – guaranteed to bring out the inner child in just about everyone. With this in mind, I’ve put together a sampling of some fun Halloween food ideas and some Halloween DIY décor ideas for the spooky season!
Halloween Food Ideas
What I love about the foodies above is how just three strategically placed dots are the key to creating any number of cute canapés.
Halloween DIY Décor Ideas
For the more inventive and creative among you, Halloween is also an excellent time to “upcycle” recyclable items into decorative pieces… For example, empty milk containers make for great spider bodies (as above); or old wool can be used to create Halloween wreaths (as above).
And possibly my favourite of favourites is the decoration of pumpkins using paint, glitter and ribbons 🙂 Best of all – they’re biodegradable and the ribbons are reusable for Christmas present wrapping (yes, believe it or not, it’s nearly that time of year again!!)
So, may you all embrace your inner child this Halloween and have loads of fun with your kids – using some of these ideas!
