DIY Halloween Project!

I’ve been working on a DIY Halloween project that I would like to share with you all!

First of all I’d like to talk about the make-up: I DO NOT own any red eyeshadow which annoyed me when I first thought of this look at it was an essential, Instead I opted for blusher, It works really well! Obviously the black on my eyes is all eyeliner and the scar is also eyeliner. its pretty basic Halloween make up but perfect to show you guys my DIY Halloween stuff!

P.S (I have edited photo’s into background to give you a feel of Halloween!)

  1. DIY trick or treat bucket!

I found an old bucket in the shed which is perfect for my little nephew to go out trick or treating with (Generous Aunt here wants sweets!!) I printed off a label from the internet and stuck it on the bucket so it felt more ‘halloweeny’.

2. Different Pumpkin Idea

This year with my pumpkin as well as carving I thought I could use Sparks Electrical Tape to jazz it up and give it some colour (I’ll let you know how I get on with it)

3. Party Counter Idea

Are you holding an event and want to know how many people there are at your Halloween party? Use a clicker to count every time someone enters!

4. The Classic Sheet Outfit

Of course everybody knows this one, but in all seriousness if you forget to buy an outfit its not the worst idea ever!!

5. Stencil Decoration

I love this idea that I came up with – Buy some line marking spray and letter stencils as well as some cardboard (May find this laying somewhere in the house like I did) then stencil on your message to put out the front of your house to add the effect of spookyness!

6. Rubbish Sacks have other uses!

Rubbish sacks are great for making props like spiders and spider webs (obviously if you are not very arty like me just print off a template to help you with the shape!)

7. Bandages to make a Mummy!

This is also a great original that works really well…

8. Boiler Suits

Boiler Suits are also great to use as a Halloween outfit to go as many things, serial killer, prisoner etc, I liked the idea of a zombie!

I hope you like my DIY tips for Halloween, let me know if you have any in the comments 🙂

Never loose your glasses again

Hopefully this idea will help a few of you out as well as my dad. I don’t actually wear glasses but my dad does, Every time I visit my mum and dad’s house he misplaces his glasses at least twice while I’m there so god knows what it is like after I have left! My dad only wears his glasses while reading or at the computer so I thought it would be easier to keep them near by to the computer. I found some 3M hooks that I had laying about and all I did was stick it to their computer, It is perfect to hang my dad’s glasses on and if he always remembers to put them back after use he will never loose them again!

(Hopefully haha)

Also I think these 3M hooks would be great for hanging things like a set of keys on maybe by the front door? Or to keep shed keys on somewhere in the house! Let me know if you have used these and what you have used them for!
