Halloween 2018 theme revealed: Gingerbread house!


Published by Manning on August 27th, 2018

This is the earliest I’ve ever announced our Halloween theme! This year for our Halloween party we’ll be transforming our apartment into a haunted gingerbread house, à la Hansel and Gretel but Halloween-ified, with tons of giant paper maché candies, a huge witch statue and an oven, and probably some bits from other spooky fairytales mixed in. We’re still refining the theme but I’m very excited about this as a starting place! So keep an eye out for my animated invitation and lots of decorating projects coming very soon! I’ve already started on a ton of ’em!

Halloween 2018 theme -- Gingerbread house!

For now here’s a drawing from the animated invitation; the finished thing comes out October 1st!

    I love your projects bud. I really do. I am also obsessed with creating things with my hands , I wish I could do that as a carrier. I would be the happiest person on earth. Looking forward to your Halloween 2018 props 👏🏻

    Thanks, Everaldo! I wish I could do this full-time too! The more I blog about this stuff the more the commission projects pick up, so I don’t wanna get my hopes up but I’d love to one day have enough projects coming in that I can do this full-time! That would be a dream come true. Anyway, tons of Halloween posts coming up!
