This week will be less about making and more about having fun, decorating and getting ready for the spookiest month of the year. So if you're after ideas on how to make your home ready for Halloween then you're in luck as there are weeks and weeks of Seven Spooky Things for you to now check out.
Let's get the final Seven Spooky Things for Halloween 2020 started!
Let's start the final week with one little make. This super easy pom pom ghost garland is adorable and would look great across your walls, fireplace, doors and more this Halloween!
You can easily make one of these in an hour or two and you can check out just how to make one right here.
One of my favourite instagram accounts @Notebookofghosts has created an awesome reading challenge for you all this October. 31 Spooky Stories (or 13 if you would prefer) is a month long challenge to read 31 short spooky stories.
It's can easily be done and is also a fun way for you to celebrate Halloween. You could even read to others or just curl up with a nice hot drink, chunky blanket and get lost in a haunting tale 13-31 nights of the month.
You can find out even more details on how to take part via the Notebook of Ghost blog post right here.
It's officially the last day of September, we're now over a week into Autumn and the best month starts tomorrow. So if you haven't already, today we're going to be decorating.
Grab all of the decorations your have available and get decking the halls with all things spooky. Have you created a theme this year? Well now it's time to put it into motion and celebrate because October is finally here!
It has finally arrived! October is BACK and today also kick starts 31 Frightful Films For 31 Nights! This list of films has been put together by myself and are a bunch of the most popular films suggested by you! A few weeks ago I asked you (via the October 31st Facebook page and group) what films you like to watch throughout October and you gave the best responses!
My question also had another motive and that was to put these films together and create a list of films we can all watch throughout October and here it is. What's more is that I will be watching five of these films with you all and throughout our watch party ill be asking you a few questions. Save your answers and email them in for your chance to win a prize.
Unfortunately these films will not be streamed due to piracy laws, but with that being said I have selected some of the most popular films to watch along with you all that hopefully you will already own or can easily access via Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney+.
The first film to kick start the month will be Hocus Pocus! We'll be watching this together at 8pm and all you will need to do is join the chat with a picture of your film ready to go. Then we'll chat online throughout the film, i'll ask a few Hocus Pocus questions, save the answers and once the film has ended you can send them in for your chance to win the prize (which will be revealed the day before the watch along night occurs).
The winner will be revealed during the next watch along night. Whats more is that everyone who emails in will also be entered into a prize draw for another mystery prize which will be revealed on Halloween!
So grab your copy of Hocus Pocus and let's get watching tonights first Frightful Film!
Almost all stores within the UK will now be stocked with loads of spooky tricks and treats so today we're going to go SHOPPING!
Grab your haunted shopping bags and let's go out to see what treats we can find. You can also check out a handy list of all stores that currently have Halloween goodies in store or online right here.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Frappuccinos might be back at Starbucks (as of writing this i've already had 3) but do they have Candy Corn milkshakes? Didn't think so!
This quick and easy recipe for Candy Corn milkshakes required no Candy Corn at all but looks super cute (and tasty) you only really need vanilla ice cream and food colouring to put this together. It would make a great October beverage this month. Why not top it off with Halloween sprinkles that you should now be able to find from most supermarkets?
Check out the full how to right here.
As it's the last day of the week and also because today marks... the last day of Seven Spooky Things for Halloween 2020, I though today would be a great time to re-post both of the free activity packs that were created during UK lockdown and also the newly released Halloween Zine from The Samsain Society.
All 3 of the files below are free to download. The activity packs are a zip file which contain all kinds of makes, puzzles, colouring pages and more! The zine is also a PDF which you should be able to download easily to your computer or phone. These are great little things to read and make throughout October and I will be releasing more packs in the future too!
To everyone who has read all of this years Seven Spooky Things posts I cannot thank you all enough for checking them out, sharing and tagging me in all of your pics to do with these posts (and the packs below). I hope you all have a wonderful October and if you make anything from the SST blog posts then please do continue to tag me as I absolutely love seeing them.
Stay safe, stay well and most of all Stay Spooky!
