We love an excuse for a good party in our house, especially if it involves dressing up. Over the past few years with the help of the internet and the high street shops there are more and more freeor affordable "props" to dress the house.
On my regular browse through Pinterest I came across these great mice cut outs downloadable for free from Martha Stewart , printed them off onto sticky labels, cut them out and stuck them onto our wooden staircase.
I found the gorgeous felt cobwebs in the Poundland for yes, just £1 each. They are supposed to be placemats but I thought they would make for a great version of musical chairs. I came up with this idea and have called it musical webs, if it takes off, you saw it here first ! We are expecting a lot of children tomorrow night so chairs could result in a disaster, let alone the space required, these will do the job just as well with the children standing on the webs. (I hope).
I love thinking up alternative uses for everyday items. Another great find in poundland were these table clothes. Perfect to hang up at the window for a great spooky effect.
Can't wait to get all dressed up and bring on the spooky party time.
