Halloween Crafts

The trick-or-treating hour is drawing ever closer so here’s some last minute costume ideas, party ideas, free printables and goolish treats.

Giant twig & wool spider web

Only two more sleeps to Halloween – just enough time for a final creepy craft :)
Twig and wool spider webs have been big in the craft world over the past few weeks so I just had to try one too….


‘Mr Creepy’ is menacingly dangling to the right of the front door, above the doorbell, waiting to pounce – I don’t expect any callers!!! :)

Cupcakes & Mobiles

I’m a big fan of cupcake wrappers and toppers at the moment – easier than icing!, perfect for themed parties or just when trying hard to sell the healthy carrot variety!

I created a few Halloween designs for MollyMoo readers over the past few days (confused the heck out of poor Molly this evening when taking this photograph – she thought it was Halloween and dressed up as a fairy!!)  So download away…
- CupcakeWrappers (black and orange patterned)
- Cupcake Wrappers (solid base with attached characters)
- Cupcake Toppers
- Ghost Mobile
