Halloween in a pinch: three easy decoration ideas

We covered spooky snacks in our last post – but there’s even more you can do to bring Halloween to your house. Read on for some easy tips and tricks…

Scary Sweetie Jars

What you’ll need:


  1. Fill your Kilner jars with sweeties: the more colourful, the better.
  2. Draw bat wings in pairs on your black paper.
  3. Cut out the wings and stick a pair on each Kilner jar.

Trick or Treat Haul


  1. Arrange the LEDs at the bottom of the bucket, loosely scrunch some torn-up newspapers and arrange around the LEDs inside the bucket to pad it out, leaving some space at the top for the sweets.
  2. Cover the top with a sheet of baking parchment to stop the sweets from falling through.
  3. Arrange the sweets on top in a heap (the jelly snakes look great draped over the top like gruesome hair).

Eyeballs in Blood

What you’ll need:


  1. Make up the jelly to pack instructions and stir in a few drops of red food colouring.
  2. Using your edible food colouring pen, draw large dots on some Mint Imperials to make the eyeballs.
  3. Pop a few ‘eyeballs’ into each glass and pour over the jelly. Chill until set.

Easy. Have a scarily good Saturday everyone, and don’t forget to grab a Dead Good Deal or two while they last.
