Easy ways to make Halloween a scream
Halloween. There aren’t many better opportunities in the year to throw an amazing party. It’s one of the best chances in the year to go really over the top though. We love Halloween because it’s an opportunity to really let our creativity loose and have some fun with make-up, costumes and decorations.
Whether you’re hosting, attending or just having fun with your friends at home, we’ve collected a couple of ideas that you can use quickly to make sure your Halloween is as scary as it should be.
Jewellery to die for
All of the effort that you go to with your costume is completed with the right accessories and jewellery. Zombies aren’t known for adding necklaces and beads to their look before they go out flesh-hunting but that doesn’t mean you can’t accessorise with style. We’re going Gothic this year, inspired by Vanessa Ives from Penny Dreadful so lace chokers dressed up with black plated chain, a Hematine cross and a few spiders.
With the shops chock full of pre-made costumes and outfits, a bit of customisation and an hour spent with a glue-gun will really make your look individual and something unique.
These amazing custom shoes witches shoes might be taking things a little far if you want to do something quick, but a simple pair of Victorian boots, a can of spray paint and some flat back beads can really make your outfit look stunning. Or, for something very different (and Louboutin inspired), why not revolutionise an old pair of shoes with glue and some bug-eyes?
If you’re hosting the party this year, then a few Halloween themed decorations needn’t cost the earth and they’ll make your room look amazing. With a few jars and some pumpkin orange and spooky black waxed cord you can create some fantastic tealight holders. With a bit of crepe bandage and some left-over bug-eyes, you can create some fun mummy tealight holders too.
With a selection of flat back beads and buttons, a cheap photo-frame can take on a Halloween look quickly and cheaply too.
