My Halloween DIY


Hey guys.

So  last week I posted about my monochrome autumn home decor and said at the end I would be doing something with glitter with Frankie….. I decided against the glitter + Frankie as I think that would have just been a glitter disaster!

I bought these great paper mâché pumpkins from Hobbie Craft and some paper mâché B O O letters too add to my Halloween theme.


I simply painted the paper mâché pumpkins with white wall paint as I found the white acrylic paint I got from hobbie craft didn’t take very well, and I only needed to apply one coat of the wall paint. I then painted a star shape with PVA glue on top of the pumpkin and sprinkled black glitter on it, little bits of glitter also sprinkled over the white bits which I think gives it alovely touch. With the B O O letters I just painted them black and they were good to go.


The pumpkins to the left on the table are real pumpkins that I just painted white with wall paint again. Really simple but affective. I got the scull cross jars and spider web candles from Asda, a couple of weeks ago.


I picked up this great trick or treat bag from tesco today too that was only 1.50 that Frankie can put all his treats into. I stupidly didn’t hide the sweat pot I bought today and I have just endured a half our Frankie meltdown! I finally managed to convince him if he was really good and had one pack he could have them all tomorrow night…. Hopefully he’ll forget I said that other wise I will be dealing with a sugar high mental zombie pirate tomorrow night!

I still haven’t carved my pumpkin! But I think I’ve done enough Halloween making today…/ think I’ll give it a go tomorrow!


Have a a spooky Halloween
