It's that time of year again when we start to think about Halloween and how to keep our little ghosts and ghouls entertained.
If like me, you like to decorate your home and give it a really spooky feel, then watch this space as I'll be sharing free printable crafts, decoration ideas and recipes which are simple and easy to make at home.
This week I'm sharing these DIY Halloween flags which attach to paper straws. I particularly love using these in milk bottles and filling them with our favourite Halloween drink...witches' brew of course!

Using your scissors or scalpel, cut around each flag
Apply glue or double sided tape to the reverse side of each one
Fold each flag around a paper straw and peel off the tape or hold firmly in place while the glue dries
And there you have it, Halloween flags to add a decorative touch to your party drinks!

WITCHES' BREW - APPLE PUNCH
I've also included my Halloween apple punch recipe for you to enjoy too, it's a real winter warmer as it includes ginger ale and cinnamon and we all love it at this time of year.
Cooking time 20-25 minutes
- 1 litre carton of apple juice
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 small apples, cored and sliced
- 2 slices of lemon
- 1 litre bottle of American ginger ale
Pour the carton of apple juice in to a large saucepan, then add the cinnamon, apple and lemon slices and put on a gentle heat for about 10 minutes. Pour in the ginger ale and continue to heat for a further 3-4 minutes.
I then serve in milk bottles but if you don't have these, then heatproof glasses work well too.
Next week I'll be sharing my Batty Chocolate Dippers recipe with a step by step guide to follow!
