Halloween Week - Nibbles & Decorations

Happy Halloween and welcome to my final post of Halloween week! Once again I've trawled Pinterest for some fun ideas on Halloween nibbles and easy to make decorations. For more ideas than those shown below, visit my Pinterest here

First up lets drool over some spook-tacular nibbles. 

I love the look of all these nibbles and think they would be great to top off a Halloween party. And no need to worry if you are not feeling artistic, those green eyeball cookies look so simple to make! 

Nibbles - check. Decoration time ...

If you head over to my Pinterest then you can find tutorials for each of these ideas by clicking through to the original link, but I'll explain them all briefly here too!

Top Row: 
1. Glass Jar Lights - decorate a glass jar with tissue paper and pop a light/candle inside. 
2. Garden Ghosts - see picture for explanation.
3. Balloon Ghosts - put a glow stick in a white balloon, blow up and draw a face on.

Middle Row: 
1. Ghost/Pumpkin Balloons - blow up orange and white balloons and decorate as pumpkins or ghosts.
2. Pumpkin Bowling! - decorate 10 toilet rolls with spooky faces and bowl a pumpkin.
3. Wine Bottle Characters - decorate wine bottles with paint to make spooky characters.

Bottom Row:
1. Glowing Eyes - Cut eyes in toilet rolls and put a glow stick inside.
2. Hanging Ghosts - draw eyes on styrofoam balls and cover with white cloth then hang.
3. Bin Liner Spider Webs - fold bin liners up and make in the same way you would make christmas snowflakes. 

So there you have it, my ideas for the perfect Halloween nibbles and decorations.

What do you think of these nibbles and decorations? Have you made anything for Halloween, whether food or craft related? If so, send me a link to your blog or tweet me a picture!

I hope you have enjoyed my week of Halloween related posts.

Halloween Week - Face Paint & Make Up Ideas

So we've sorted pumpkin designs and Halloween nail art, now its time to get creative with face paint and make-up to top off those scary Halloween costumes! Yet again I've enlisted the help of my trusty friend Pinterest to search for some amazing design ideas. If you would like to see more Halloween ideas, check out my Pinterest board here.

Much like the nail art, these are way out of my artistic league but I would definitely be tempted to give them a go if I was dressing up this year! I wanted to show you some designs that were a little more inventive than just smearing a load of white face paint and fake blood on your face! Although I have to admit that is definitely the option I've taken on more than one occasion! 

What do you think of these ideas? Have you created any Halloween looks this year? If so leave me a link in the comments or tweet me your pictures! I would love to see how creative you have all been!


p.s. don't forget to enter my 50 follower giveaway, you can find it here - good luck!

Halloween Week - Nail Art Ideas

Welcome to the second of my Halloween Week posts. I am absolutely nail varnish mad so when it comes to nail art, I could search for ideas all day! Although I'm not so good at recreating more complicated looks so I thought I would share some of my favourites from Pinterest with you! If you would like to see more of my Halloween Nail Art ideas then head to my Pinterest here.

I really wish I was a pro at nail art because some of these ideas are brilliant! I love the range of designs that people come up with, there is definitely something to cover every fancy dress outfit idea! As well as the really fancy designs, there are a few designs that would be really easy to recreate, for example the spiders web or the simple black and orange tips. 

Which is your favourite design? Have you done any Halloween nail posts? 
If you have leave your links in the comments and I'll come and check them out!
