Finalising your Halloween party ideas? Why not try one of these super simple yet spooky ideas that are bound to give your guests a fright.

The key is in the skinned finger nails. If you can get the shapes right, these sausages will look just like fingers. And don't forget to add the wrinkles. An absolute classic.

You might think these require years of mixology training to produce, but actually all you need are some dry ice pellets - and you can buy those here. So, all you need to do is make up your favourite spooky cocktails, fill up an old chest and dry-ice away...simple.

7. Sausage Mummies

Sausage Mummies


For more of a DIY feel, wrap up some sausages inside ribbons of pastry, dollop on some ketchup for eyes, and you've got yourself some delicious 'mummies'. Here's the recipe.
