They are in-keeping with the Halloween theme because they’re orange and black, but much more suitable for if you don’t like scary over the top decorations.Guide To Halloween Decor Guide To Halloween Decor Concentrated creep | This type of decoration is perfect if you don’t have a really large area to decorate, but you still want to get into the spirit of Halloween. Just add some fake spider webs to some existing decoration in the area, like I have here with the lanterns. Then add some Halloween-themed tea light candle holders, and a sign, maybe that says ‘Happy Halloween’ or something spooky.Guide To Halloween Decor Guide To Halloween Decor Guide To Halloween Decor Halloween Bunting | If you’ve got the room for it, I’d definitely recommend having Halloween-themed bunting up. This is because it brings the whole room together, and it can be one of the only pieces of decoration you have up, but it’s plenty to bring a Halloween vibe.

Halloween Pumpkin Carving Competition

This past week, myself and my brother jumped right into the Halloween spirit by having a pumpkin carving competition!

I chose to carve Jack Skellington into my pumpkin, as he is immediately recognisable, and makes for a super cool pumpkin.DSCN2706 My brother actually went for quite a similar design, not Jack Skellington, it was simply a creepy pumpkin face.DSCN2707 DSCN2708 Once we had cleaned up our pumpkins and tidied up the edges, we were ready to put the candles in them, and fully appreciate them.DSCN2713

Snapchat Filter Halloween Costume

Hey guys! Today I thought I’d share a quick halloween makeup tutorial, a Snapchat filter! As most of you probably know by now, a few weeks back, Snapchat unveiled their latest features, one of which was a super cute rainbow-puke filter. And since we’re nearing halloween, I thought this would be a super easy last-minute makeup look for anyone that doesn’t have a costume yet!

So I started out by doing my regular face and basic eye makeup, just a touch of gold on the lids and wings, with a little bit of mascara.

Then you start by creating a small rainbow on your chin. I used face paints to achieve this look, but you could use liquid lipsticks, eyeshadows, or anything that will be highly pigmented when applied to your face.   Snapchat Filter Halloween Costume Makeup Tutorial Once you’ve finished the chin, you can bring the rainbow down onto your neck and chest. I’ve put a little wave in it because that’s how the filter falls when it’s on Snapchat.Snapchat Filter Halloween Costume Makeup Tutorial Now for some smaller details, I added little stars and sparkles with a white eyeliner pencil, and a little cloud attached to the end of the rainbow.Snapchat Filter Halloween Costume Makeup TutorialSnapchat Filter Halloween Costume Makeup Tutorial Finally I added some white eyeliner to my waterline and bottom lash line, making my eyes look bigger, and a lot of blush to the apples of my cheeks, because the filter makes your eyes very big, and cheeks very flushed.

I then blended my cheeks, and you’re done!Snapchat Filter Halloween Costume Makeup Tutorial


And that’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this fun tutorial, it really is super quick and easy if you don’t have a costume preprepared, or if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a costume! Let me know if you give this look a go for halloween!

Halloween Gingerbread Men

That’s right, today marks the official start of Halloween here on Organic By Nerve! I’ve got a lot of fun halloween themed posts for you guys for the rest of this month, so without further adieu, let’s get started with these super cute (and easy) halloween themed gingerbread men!6


Ingredients:

350g plain flour, plus extra for rolling out

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp ground cinnamon

125g butter

175g light soft brown sugar

1 free range egg

4 tbsp golden syrup


Method:

First, preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4, and line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Then start by sifting together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and cinnamon. Then pour into your mixer. Add the butter and blend until the mix looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.

Next, lightly beat the egg and golden syrup together, add to the mixer and mix until the mixture combines together.

Roll the dough out to whatever thickness you’d like (remember that they will spread and rise in the oven though!) on a lightly floured surface. Using your gingerbread men cutters, cut out the gingerbread men shapes and place on the baking tray, leaving a gap between each of them.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly golden-brown. Finally, move them onto a wire rack to finish cool properly before icing. When cooled decorate with the writing icing and make them as ghoulish or creepy as your heart desires! I’ve left some ideas for you below.

You can ice your gingerbread men to look like skeletons, mummies, zombies, sewn-up frakensteins, vampires, chainsaw victims, ordinary creepers or even the gingerbread man from Shrek!


That’s it for my halloween themed gingerbread men! Let me know if you’re going to recreate these, I’d love to see them!
