These Seven Spooky Things should keep you well spooked from August 3rd to August 9th.
Check out all of this weeks daily tasks below:
The start of spooky season has finally landed in the UK and although summer still has over a month to go before Autumn arrives, now is the perfect time to get out there and hunt down those spooky treats. Stores such as TK Maxx, Homsense and The Range all have Halloween products available now with more stores starting to stock products too. So todays make are these super quick and easy Halloween shopping bags!
You can customise these with any fabric you like and you'll be ready to trick or treat yourself in no time. Find out all the steps on how to make your own bag right here.
Did you know yesterday (Sunday August 2nd) was National Colouring Book Day? Well to celebrate Sandstar Art released a free colouring page and it is adorable! So today we're going to be colouring in.
You can download this page right here and be sure to share your completed pages in the comments of their original post too.
If you wanted more free colouring pages then I also released two free activity packs during lockdown that you can download right here and here.
We're continuing with fabric today and going with this awesome felt Halloween Chandelier.
You could make this easily with items you might already have around the house, so for some of you this will be ready to make right away. The instructions require iron-on black letters but you could very easily switch this for cut out felt letters and simply glue these on too.
To find out how to make this cute little decoration just head right over here.
Todays make is a really quick and easy creation but the way The Shabby Tree has used these diy witch hats gave me some great decorating ideas and so I thought these would be great to share too and help with this years Halloween decorating.
The instructions require you to spray paint these black but just like yesterdays make, you can easily substitute the black spray paint with black card and avoid breathing in any fumes.
Check out how these are used and also the instructions right here.
It's time for a little bit of reading today and i'm sharing a short article about six of the most haunted places in Edinburgh.
I have visited Edinburgh so many times and every single visit I have fallen more and more in love with it. The city itself is absolutely gorgeous and its dripping with sinister history and haunted streets. This article delves briefly into some of the most haunted places within the city. Hopefully this will peak your interest into looking into this wonderful city even more and will lead you down a spooky rabbit hole into it's dark past. If you ever have the opportunity to visit this city then definitely go! I highly recommend the Vaults, which alone have heaps of history and twisted tales. If you can book an overnight ghost hunt too, then definitely do so... you will not regret it!
These ghosts are quite simply adorable and another easy make. I have shared a similar make in the past using cheese cloth but these ghosts take a little more work (but not much more). They look great with battery powered tealights underneath too.
Place these around your house, within a mini pumpkin patch or just use a cute little lamp this Halloween.

Let's end this week with a film, as tonight is movie night! This weeks movie is the cult classic and highly praised Bram Stokers Dracula!
Released in 1992, the film became the 9th highest grossing film of the year and was considered a box office hit. Over the years the film has developed cult status and is often seen as one of the best vampire films to exist.
The film stars Winona Ryder, Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves and Anthony Hopkins. If you have never seen this film before then tonight is the perfect night!
As a bonus extra each week i'll feature an instagrammer who has a spooky profile that you might like. This way you can add even more spookiness to your instagram feed each week too.
This weeks featured instagrammer is: @cfuckinghorror
