1. DIY Cardboard RIPs
With some cardboard, grey paint and a permanent marker, you can create some spooky tombstones for your front garden, doorstep or home for next to nothing. We love a gravestone with a pun on it, but that’s just us! Kyle B. Back, RIP.
2. Get More Out of Your Pumpkin
Are you the kind of family who get so excited about Halloween that your pumpkin’s out on the porch by mid-October? There’s no judgement here! But if you’d like to get the most out of your pumpkin, here’s are a clever way to help your spooky vegetable last a little longer…
Once you’ve scraped out your pumpkin’s innards, give it a good wash inside with a mix of bleach and water before letting it dry completely. Once it’s dry, pop a little Vaseline on its carved surfaces and stand it on a piece of card of newspaper instead of cold concrete.
3. Make Creepy Curtains
Trick or treaters love it when the next house on their quest for sugar makes an effort! Creepy curtains made from your normal black bin liners make an awesome entrance. Simply cut your bin bags into strips and hang them along the top of your door. Bwah ha ha ha!
4. Grow Your Own Pumpkin
This is a great tip for next Halloween. Pumpkins get expensive in October, but growing your own is really cheap and surprisingly easy. It’s also a great project for the kids to help with! Here’s a quick guide to growing your own.
5. Costume Swap!
Whether you’re looking for the perfect get up for a grown up party or hunting for something spooky for your little ghosts and ghoulies, a costume swap is a great way to save money. If your best friend made an amazing Dracula last year, swap her look for your zombie nurse this year!
