I attended the Halloween & Hauntfest show in Arlington TX on Saturday 8/27 and had a great time.
In fact, I was having too much of a great time to take very many pictures. So instead, let me direct you to the Haunted Attractions Network, which has some video of the classes at the event
Haunters tend to look at every holiday as an opportunity for finding new ideas for Halloween. Easter, with it’s cute bunnies and colorful eggs, offers little that can be turned dark and gothic. But if you look closely, and use your imagination, you can find some ideas for those plastic eggs so prevalent this time of year.
Martha Stewart has surprisingly good Halloween ideas. Here at Stonehaven Manor, we’ve used the spider egg sac idea. This picture uses a plastic egg instead of the styrofoam ball in Martha’s instructions.
A little hot glue and other materials give you a neat Dragon’s Egg for your medieval theme haunt or party.
If you are trying out an Egyptian Mummy costume, add some of these scarab beetles. These use foam eggs instead of plastic ones.
Every Halloween party needs party favors. Whether these Skull Party Favors contain candy or something more disgusting… well, that’s up to you!
Finally, you can use the plastic eggs as molds for these edible Gelatin Eyes.

We all know that chocolates have become a traditional gift for Valentines Day. I’m sure the chocolate industry has something to do with that. Instead of the standard caramel filled chocolates in a heart-shaped box, why not try an actual chocolate heart from PushinDaisies.com?
If you have been bitten by the haunting bug, you’ll notice that everything you see brings this question to mind : “How can I use this for Halloween?”. And Christmas stuff is no different.
Here are a few ideas for you to think about, as the tradition of Christmas markdowns gets underway. Think about picking up some of these products to use or alter next October 31st.
I like Christmas. Really, I do!
Just because I make our house look all spooky at Halloween doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the bright cheery Holiday Season.
And if you are looking for more modern holiday horror, look no farther than the new movie “Krampus”
