Happy Halloween

Halloween hasn’t been really that popular here in Australia or at least in the area where we live in.

This year seems to be different though. The shops have heaps of Halloween decorations, Hallooween sales are going around and the discount stores are full of people buying Halloween decorations and costumes.

I haven’t thought of celebrating it, but my daughter got invited to trick-or-treating with my neiughbour’s kids, so I thought it would be nice to get into the spirit of celebration and decorate a little. Everything was done last minute though, but I’m quite happy with the end result. I made a Halloween Wreath, I’ve seen something similar going around Pinterest, but if I’m not mistaken it was a Xmas Wreath. I had the idea at first to make it with ribbons, but then decided it would be too expensive, so I end up buying crepe paper from the local discount store ($1 each) and bought a foam wreath from Spotlight for $2. The whole project cost under $10, but you need an hour or two to make it.

Then my daughter and I made very quickly some lolly bags for her friends at art class. I used little bitty bags and twine from the store. The colours are just perfect for Halloween.

Do you celebrate Halloween and go “trick-or-treating”?

PS. And please come by our house! We have heaps of lollies this year (after not having any last year & 5 kids knocked on the door. I had to give them bags of popcorn, and then I didn’t even have enough of that…)
