Weekly Inspiration- Halloween makes and bakes

Last year I made these wonderful origami bats to grace the front porch for our Halloween party:

Sadly, this year we’re too busy to do anything other than maybe carve an obligatory pumpkin for the garden, so I thought I’d round up some of the best makes and bakes I’ve found online.

  • Eeek! Mini pumpkins

This is so simple but I think it looks great! Check out the how-to here.

  • Spider cupcakes

You can easily turn cupcakes into spooky spiders with the help of some liquorice for the legs and candy for the eyes! There are loads of different ideas out there, here are a few of my favourite pictures to help you decorate your own:

  • Halloween Up-cycled

Out of all of these great eco-friendly spooky craft projects, I think this plastic skull is my favourite:

There’s a simpler version here using milk cartons. I’m sure you don’t need that fancy schmancy machine.

  • Monster Brownies

Something else simple, effective and adaptable! Sometimes all you need is an idea and it can get you going. Check out monster brownies and out here.
