House by Hoff
Boo! This fun display is a great way to ‘ghoul up’ the mantelpiece for Halloween.

Homes: House by Hoff
Christmas aside, Halloween is the one other time of year when you can go over the top with fun decorations – and it’s the only time you can make a statement with a pumpkin. There are plenty of ideas around on how to ghoul up your house but I love this little mantelpiece decorating project at blog House by Hoff. Instructions included.


Not Martha
Trick-or-treat cookies with a hidden surprise…

Food: Not Martha
A treat within a treat. These trick-or-treat cookies each have a little surprise inside – mini chocolates, sugar ants, anything you like really. A fun weekend project and something special to hand out to your ghostly visitors come October 31.


Clementine Daily
Top beauty secret for gorgeous skin? Pumpkin!

Beauty: Clementine Daily
Pumpkins aren’t just for eating and carving – they contain exfoliating enzymes to give your skin a “wicked” glow. Well, so say the girls at Clementine Daily, a new lifestyle website that I’m loving right now.


Tower of London
The Tower of London. Its most famous ghost is, of course, Anne Boleyn.

Travel: Environmental Graffiti
There are some places in the world where you really do feel you’re walking with the ghosts of previous inhabitants. Its bloody history puts the Tower of London pretty much top of the list, but there are many others including the catacombs in Paris. Great reading, even if you can’t get there.


Martha Stewart
Owl night watchers how-to at Martha Stewart’s Pinterest board Halloween Ideas and Crafts.

Pinspiration: Martha Stewart
Of course the queen of homemaking, Martha Stewart, has a Halloween Pinterest board. Lots of weird and wonderful projects to be found here.
