Another form of decoration I'll be putting up over the next few days, comes courtesy of my friend Sara Love. I was DJing at a Halloween Hoedown last year and Sara had run up some home made bunting for the event. It's such a simple idea and one that can be adapted to so many different kinds occasions, using various colours and materials. But as I've mentioned before, when it comes to Halloween, the tattier the better, so I'll be using string and scraps of old worn material in browns, greys, oranges, dark greens and purples to construct mine.
Finally, and the wee man deserves credit for this, is the transformation of our windows into spooky stained glass. Last year when we received one of the mandatory Quality Street tins for Christmas, Damien insisted on keeping all the sweet wrappers for crafts. Shuggie discovered them this morning and has been sticking them to the window and they don't look too bad. I think we'll arrange them properly along with some ghost, bat, pumpkin and witch cut outs for added effect.
