Halloween is fast approaching and it’s time to get in the spirit of everything spooky!

I’ve been scouring the internet looking for some of my favourite DIY Halloween Crafts to share with you. Here are just a few.

Halloween toffee apple1) Poison Toffee Apples

The toffee apple is the ‘must have’ for any Halloween menu and I love this fairy tale twist on the classic treat. After all, Halloween isn’t about happily ever afters.

Book pumpkin Halloween craft2) Book Page Pumpkins

Pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes at Halloween so why not in book form! Well technically it’s a book in the shape of a pumpkin.. but anyway! It’s a great way to upcycle old or damaged books.

Wreaths are a great decoration at other festivities, so why not Halloween? Taking inspiration from Edgar Allen Poe, this crafter has really tuned into their inner macabre.
