Anyone who has been watching The Great British Bake Off this year will have seen the fun Helena had introducing a little Gothic vibe into decor. In the video below we show you how you can transform an ordinary pet shop purchase into a piece of ghoulish festive decor using some of our spray paints.
The origin of Halloween celebrations
The word Halloween is a contraction of All Hallos Eve, in other words the day before All Saints Day. In days gone past it was believed that the spirits of the dead returned to the world of the living on this day and candles were placed in windows to guide them home.
Today’s celebrations are a little more light-hearted with the custom of fancy dress, trick or treating and decorating houses. Pintyplus spray paints can be the perfect accompliment to your Halloween decorating bringing colour and individuality to your home.
