The frightfully exciting holiday of Halloween is fast approaching so get ready for a spooktacular time with amazing costume and decoration ideas from Etsy.
Chillingly Clever Costumes
Transform into a creature of the night and scare lurking figures back into the shadows.
Go for a ready-made costume of a spider web or a big, bad wolf. If a full-blown costume is not for you, simply wear a humorous T-shirt and accessorize with an animal mask and tail.
Alternatively, piece a costume together. Resemble a sinister crow when you wear a sleeve of crows and a beak-shaped hat, or spread your long, black wings and prepare to fly off into the dead of night.
Kids look cute dressed as a fox or skunk. Give them bat wings and let them loose with temporary bat and spider tattoos. Toddlers are adorable in hound dog hoodies.
And don’t forget your pets — they’re dying to get involved with the creepy celebrations too. From cobweb collars and bat bandanas to Halloween hammocks, there are plenty of ways to include your fiendishly furry friends.
Horrifyingly Good Decorations
Warn anyone daring to enter your lair with a ‘Beware of the Hellhound’ sign in your front garden. Stick crow decals in your windows so they can cast their beady eyes on anyone who approaches. An owl decal on a pumpkin questions the wisdom of proceeding any further.
Kids howl with delight when they can get involved with making Halloween decorations. Sit them down with some wooden rat cut-outs and let them concoct some devilish designs with paint, glitter and googly eyes.
Thrilling Treats for Lost Souls
Be ready for a big Halloween haul with trick-or-treat bags and buckets. Choose a design to match your costume and personalize kids’ ones as a special touch.
When trick-or-treaters call at your home, they’ll be spellbound by the goodies you’ve got to offer.
Fill their bags with marzipan mice, gummy worms and chocolate spiders. Cupcakes in cobweb wrappers and with edible bat toppers are to die for. As they’re goblin them down, hand out spooky stickers and freakishly funny finger puppets.
Let the Menacing Fun Begin
The invitations have been sent, your home is suitably haunted and your costume will have skeletons tripping over their tombstones. As darkness falls and creepy crawlies scuttle around, you’ll have a scream with your family and friends on fright night!
