Allistair of Hole in My Pocket (a shop from the UK in our market this month) spent sunday making origami bats, skulls and pumpkins to decorate their stairwell of their outbuilding for Halloween. He mentioned they try and do something every year to surprise the rest of the residents in their block when they step out their apartments in the morning.
They also fill a little pumpkin bucket full of sweets at the bottom of the stair with little messages from a few friendly monster chaps Allistair had drawn up. And for fun he's mocked up some basic instructions and templates on how to make both the bats and the pumpkins/ skulls along with the treat message for the sweets (available on his blog). An adorable fun idea to surprise the littles, workmates or neighbors. Here’s the link to his post (along with the free download instruction template). Check it out at holeinmypocketblog.blogspot.co.uk
