Our Halloween Crafts

I know, I know, Halloween was last month, but it's been a busy week, I kept forgetting to charge my camera battery and when I did get around to it my camera and computer became temporarily 'incompatable'!

It was my turn to host the Halloween shenanigans this year, and as we were having American guests I though I'd better make an effort with the decor.  France however, is not big in the creepy home accessories department, so we had to get a little bit creative with what we had around the house:

Ghostly gifts for trick or treaters

The boys painted a spooky table runner and made a few mummy candle holders.  I found the table confetti on a recent trip to Italy.

We greeted our guests with a Frankenstein inspired front door, I even suggested painting it green for maximum effect but Richard Boohooed that idea!

This ghostly apparition appeared in the front window!!

Back by popular demand (from Tino) was the vomiting pumpkin that Richard carved - his very first one!

We had so much fun, I'm already 'pinning' ideas for next year.
Do you have any to share?


  1. All looks great, I hope a fun time was had by all! Vomiting pumpkins my that is too scary for me.....

  2. Fantastic crafty Halloween decorations.
