Trick or Treat!

 
 Good morning my little pumpkins!
 
I thought it would be fun to do a little Halloween themed post seeing as I am abso obsessed with Halloween! I can't wait for my trick or treaters to come round! My friend might be having a small Halloween gathering at her house the weekend of Halloween so hopefully I'll get to dress up, don't know whether to do my make up like really really scary or just go as a cat? I swear there is nothing cuter than a wee black nose and a couple of whiskers drawn on with your favourite eyeliner! What are you guys planning on going as?
 
So back to the post! I nabbed all these pics of my beloved Pinterest...I love Pinterest. I always look to it for ideas, beauty-related, DIY or for the home!
 
To start off lets talk PUMPKINS! I loooove pumpkins, I previously made pumpkin pie which turned out delilsh! Recipe post to hopefully follow ;) I do like carving pumpkins but it gets so messy and I'm super clumsy so I know if I don't have adult supervision I'll end up cutting my thumb off... :/ So, alternatively I thought about other ways to jazz up your Jack O' Lantern this hallows eve, see below.
 
 
How gorgeous is this lace pumpkin?? All you do is buy a pair of pretty lace tights, slip your pumpkin into one leg then just cut to size! Simple, yet effective : )
 
 
This pumpkin is so unbelievably pretty! This would look gorgeous sitting next to the lace one above. From the looks of it, this requires a bit more handiwork... The pumpkin looks like it may be covered in silk cloth and possibly glued together underneath. Find a really pretty metallic paint to paint the stalk (is that what you call it?) and add some lush jewels to give it that WOW effect. And hey presto, a pumpkin fit for the Queen.
 
 
I love the pumpkin at the front but I'm not so sure about the one at the back because you cant really tell that its a pumpkin :( The pumpkin at the front looks like it has been placed in the centre off some see through meshy material and then gathered at the top with pretty ribbons.
 
 
Now these two little pumpky-wumpy-umpkins are just the cutest little things I have ever seen! In terms of how to do it, the picture is pretty self-explanatory. SO CUTE!!!!
 
Now for the goodies for your little trick or treaters!
 
 
These fruit cups are fab for the people who don't want to just through sweets and crisps at kids when they come to your door. Use a sharpie to draw the Jack O' Lanterns face : )
 
 
These Jack Skeleton cupcakes are so adorable. To cheat, just get a box of chocolate muffins and spread over some luscious thick white chocolate and decorate with black icing...simples!
 
 
 
Right, I am deffinitley doing this! So easy to do! Just get some white tape and wrap around the juice box and add googly eyes. Mummies will love this, get it?! Ha Ha!
 
 
I have to tell you guys something, its a secret so shhhh.....I freakin' LOVE owls! I think they're are the cutest fluffiest little things! This picture had to sneak its way into the post purely out of the cuteness factor!
 
 
This 'hand-bag', get it?! Oh my, I am on a roll today! Yeah, so anyways, this handbag for trick or treaters is such a good idea! Just grab some disposable clear gloves and stuff with lots of treats! If you can find any spooky rings, slide them on the fingers once the hand is full for that extra spook-factor!
 
 
I need this sign in my life...it's amazing! I love the little quote that's on it...
 
"When witches go riding and black cats are seen...tis 29 days until Halloween!"
 
Hope you guys liked this post! What are you doing for Halloween? Parties, trick or treating, bobbing for apples....let me know in the comments below!
 
xoxo
