Last minute haloween decorations

image

Everyone runs behind some of the time, I seem to run behind most of the time! This was a super quick throwing up of decorations for the spookiest night of the year. It took me an hour from cutting up bats to stepping back and congratulating myself on a job well done!

Starting with the door, I made the wreath earlier in the season as a general autumn wreath by glue gunning fake leaves, bows, conkers and ribbon onto a preexisting wreath. To spook it up I added some plastic pumpkins and a plastic skull salvaged off a haloween hat my brother bought about 5 years ago! Simple.

The bats are just eyeballed and cut from black paper then attached to the door and shutters using rolled tape (I ran out of blue tack!)

The ghosts came out of my seasonal decoration box but we’re easy peasy to make following a beautiful mess instructions. My only alterations were using bundles of rags for the heads and using several layers of white fabric for the ‘bodies’ (I’m tempted to call them dresses) not just one which makes them more poofy.

Done, now to wait for the little monsters!

Demijon lamp

I had seen variants of this project all over the internet and if I had know quite how simple it was going to be in would have already filled my house with lamps!

I found the demijon at a carboot sale glimmering in the early morning sun for only £2 and it was love at first sight! The lamp kit came from amazon but rumor has it local diy type places stock them too (just not where I live!)

It’s a complex process of jamming it into the top of the bottle until tight. My bottle neck was a little large so a hodge podge of white tack did the trick and you can’t even see it in the day to day life of a lamp!

Blue tack doing its sticky thing!

Add a shade ( mine was cheap!) and plug it all in, make a coffee and bask in your new glow!
