Tips for Halloween decorating:
- You don’t ALWAYS need the real deal. Pumpkins can be hideously expensive – try painting your own on to cardboard and propping them up for the same effect.
- Trace your child’s handprint onto orange and brown paper and cut them out to make sweet autumn looking leaves.
- A few packets of a fake spiderweb (look at Woolworths or Big W) goes a LONG way, spread this across your outdoor furniture for a quick ghastly effect!
- Use pots of orange flowers to theme your front door and add cardboard bats or spiders on sticks as garden stakes. Cute and thrifty!
