Now that winter is on its way it means one thing – no not Christmas. It’s nearly time for the funnest day of the year, Halloween.
You really can’t beat a Halloween party, but to make sure that all your guests are truly terrified you have to make sure that you have the creepiest ideas. Which is why we’ve put together 13 absolutely spooky ideas for your Halloween party:
1. Severed Finger Hot Dogs
Just how gross (but oddly delicious) do they severed finger hot dogs look? They’re really simple too. All you need is some hot dogs and a knife to carve into them. See the full instructions here.
2. Bloody Hand Print Towels
Just how creeped out will your guests be when you they nip to the bathroom to find this? All you need is some cheap fake blood, some old white towels and your hand. You can also use an old toothbrush to create some blood splatter too.
3. Jelly Worms

4. Give the Kids a Spook with These Treat Bags
Why give out sweets on normal bags with you can make up treat bags using surgical gloves! Boxes of gloves are pretty inexpensive then just tie with a ribbon and add spider rings for extra effect.
5. DIY Gothic Candles

7. Make Your Own Pickled Head in a Jar
It wouldn’t be Halloween without a severed head in a jar. But, before you go out to decapitate your annoying neighbour, it’s easy to make your own with just a photograph. Get the instructions here.

Halloween needs to be spooky, which is why these Halloween figures are perfect. Just mould some chicken wire into a figure and place round your garden. For extra scariness add some glow-in-the-dark spray paint.
