Lifestyle | Halloween Night In On A Budget

I love the build up to Halloween! However due to it being a five week month money to get dressed up and party this year is limited, this is why I'm having a more low key kinda evening but with still all the fun. Today's post is going to show you how to have a night in on Halloween but on a budget.

Bake Some Treats
I decided to bake some cupcakes for us to have as a treat but with a Halloween twist. These are Broken Glass Red Velvet cupcakes. You can find the full recipe here if you want to make them.

Watch Films On Netflix
Netflix has a loads of scary films available to watch, nothing better than to scare yourself silly by watching the newest Carrie or Scream. I personally am not a big fan of scary films (I couldn't even get through teh first episode of American Horror Story) so I tend to stick to the more child friendly Halloween films Netflix has on offer such as Hocus Pocus, Addams Family etc. This covers all your basis.

Get some Treats in
Around Halloween your local supermarkets tend to have offers on bumper packs of sweets, perfect for snacking on whilst watching your scary films. You can also look on Pinterest and find great ways to make Halloween inspired stuff like this Strawberry Eyeballs.

Face Painting/Make Up
Just because your staying in doesn't mean you dont have to miss out on the fancy dress fun completely. Delve into your make up collection and re create some easy halloween make up looks. This can be anything from OTT eye looks to Black Swan or a Cat. Then take a selfie and upload to Instagram.

Pumpkin Carving
Grab yourself a pumpkin from your local supermarket and have a pumpkin carving competition with your mates. Nothing like creating a super pumpkin whilst injecting a little bit of competition in the mix. You can then light them all whilst tucking into all your treats and watching your films.

So those are my top tips for a super cheap Halloween night in. What are you waiting for get your friends over and have your own mini Halloween night in.

What are you doing on Halloween? Will you be doing any of my tips?
