When I was little Halloween was seldom mentioned in Melbourne but just last week I received a (will your door be open to trick or treaters) note in the mail ensuring that the little ones in our street are warmly welcomed when they come knocking.... so if you are having a celebration I have found some simple craft projects to enhance your theme.
Hang treat bags filled with lollies from the branch of a tree sprayed black and placed in a pot.
Drape your mantle piece in grey tulle or spider web floss (usually available at craft & party stores)
Gather any black (reproduction or vintage) items and group candles etc...
Spider Jar Lanterns ... take an old jar place an LED Tea light, I repeat LED battery operated Tea light in he centre stuff with tissues or faux spider web floss and place a plastic spider on top!!
Take a rubber glove (wash it thoroughly) fill with water fasten the top and freeze then pop into a fruit punch for a scary surprise!.
DIY painted chevron pumpkins - celebrate in style!
Fold a cupcake liner into a witch hat!
Chicken wire 'ghost dresses' mould the wire into shape and voila!
