Halloween with Hobbycraft

I’m trying to be really organised this year with Halloween.  Monkey, at just under 4 years, seems more aware of it all now.  He loved my pumpkin carving attempt last year, but didn’t really understand why Mummy was doing it.  This year, we’re away until just before Halloween so I need to get everything ready in advance. So I needed some help and I decided to have Halloween with Hobbycraft – a store I love.  It’s a great place to pick up craft items for Monkey but also as a cross stitcher (not so much at the moment – note to self: Monkey’s Christmas stocking WILL NOT finish itself) I’ve spent many an hour perusing the shelves for ideas.

So look what I’ve come up with this year for Halloween with Hobbycraft ….

I picked a variety of Halloween items including The Boo Crew Masks, Spider Glitter Cut outs and Stretchy Spiders and Bugs.  I intend to hang the Glitter Cut Outs all over the Kitchen and Living Room on Halloween, have Monkey and I wear the Boo Crew Masks and have fun scaring visitors with our sinister mini beasts!  You know us, mini beasts have to make an appearance in some form or another.

As you can see in the photo’s above I’ve also been making Spooky Fruit and using these Halloween accessories to brighten up my display.

Earlier in the week I did a bit of Halloween baking, and this is how I intend to display my ghoulish wares on the big day.




Hopefully the ghosts and ghouls will appreciate the feast we have in store for them – trick or treat?

So what do you think of my Halloween with Hobbycraft selection?  What will you be decorating your house with this Halloween?

I have to say, that I was spoilt for choice and I’m really pleased with my selection.  Watch this space for pictures of us in our masks on the night itself!

Top tip:  Hobbycraft have a 3 for 2 offer on for these items at the moment!

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
