Spooky Decorations Pt. 1

I’m so happy that I have my first Halloween decorations up! These flying bats for my room are the first things I made. I think they’re fun – they’re simple and not too tacky and super easy to make. This DIY is as simple as cutting and sticking. By Halloween my house will be looking pretty spooooooky!

10 sheets of black card
Blue tack

Step 1: Draw on your bat shapes. I did four sizes of bats – the biggest were the length of a sheet of A4, and the little one’s I cut from the space under the big bat’s wings. Fold the card in half and draw on half the batΒ  – that way your bat will be symmetrical, and he will look like he’s flapping his wings when you blue tack him to the wall! Then cut out your bats.

Step 2: Blue tack your bats to the wall!

I told you this was a quick decoration πŸ™‚

I also carved my first pumpkin! This guy is a “monster” pumpkin. I carved the witch and James carved the ghost. I’m not sure if it’ll make it all the way to Halloween, but if not at least I used the insides to attempt my first pumpkin pie (I think I need a little practice…)

Have you put any Halloween decorations up yet? I have big plans for the rest of the house but I’m pretty pleased with my decorations so far. I’m hoping to host a Halloween get-together at my house which will give me lots of opportunity to create some spooky concoctions!


Halloween Mourning

Today is the sad day where we have to take our halloween decorations down 😦 No more bats and ghosts flying around the ceiling. No more creepy cobwebs hitting me in the face whilst I’m trying to walk through the door. To commemorate this loss, here’s some pictures of our decorations…

Again, i’m sorry the quality of the photos isn’t great, I can’t wait to get a proper camera. It’s very tempting to buy one now and go without food for a couple of weeks.

It’s not all bad though, since this weekend is bonfire weekend! I am going to be eating a lot of toffee apples, let’s hope i still have some teeth left on monday.

Have a good weekend πŸ™‚
