Halloween Lanterns

Halloween is steadily growing over here in the UK, and while we might not be able to outdo many US households, we’re willing to give it a go – Go Big Or Go Home, right?

I've scoured the depths of the internet and I'm here to bring you the best of the best of Halloween including our favourite recipes, costume inspiration, and decoration ideas, because this is going to be the best Halloween yet...

So, let's get started!

Costume
The first thing you’re gonna need to spookify is YOU.
Now, if you’re really lazy, you can buy yourself a premade costume… But where’s the fun in that?

Zombie looks are the easiest - just rip some regular clothes, smear some fake blood on yourself and start moaning about braaaaaaains.
You can usually grab bottles of fake blood from any cheap costume or card shop, or you can make your own using corn syrup and red food colouring (Here are a few good recipes if you want to try this out).

Alternatively, if you’d rather go for something more fantasy and less gore, grab yourself some face paint and watch some incredible Halloween tutorials - This is our favourite YouTube playlist.
