Hobbycraft Halloween Goodies Review

I associate the month of October with Halloween, this includes dressing up in scary costumes, trick or treating and of course spooky arts and crafts.


Hobbycraft are the largest arts and crafts retailer in the UK. With 78 stores nationwide, they provide all the things you need to get craft including : art materials, craft kits, cookware and baking supplies, papercraft, knit, stitch and haberdashery.

Hobbycraft are also celebrating Halloween, stocking decorations, party supplies and craft kits. I was kindly sent a selection of their Halloween range to try out and review.

I was sent : Pom Pom Kit Pumpkins £2.50, Pumpkin Witch Foam Activity Kit £1.50, Amscan Halloween Decoration Tape Banners £3.00, Amscan Resealable Bags 12pc £1.50, 75 Cupcake Cases £2.00 and there was even a couple of bugs and bats thrown in too.

The girls were eager to  get to work with their craft kits. I left them at the dining room table to get creative. 

After lots of cutting, gluing, glittering and stickiness, they were finally ready to reveal their creations. 

Next week we will be making the most of our Halloween cake cases making some pumpkin themed cakes, keep an eye out for that post!!!

We are saving the decorations and the bags for the actual day of Halloween, I'm planning on doing a spooky treasure hunt around the house. 

As for the bugs and bats. Well the girls have been trying to scare me the past couple of days, putting them down in places when I'm not looking!!

All of these items are available on Hobbycraft right now and they even have a spooktacular 3 for 2 offer on all Halloween goodies while stocks last and at already bargain prices, it is well worth the money!!!

Do you have anything planned for Halloween this year?


Disclaimer : These items were sent to me free of charge for reviewing purposes however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
