Halloween is here again! We love this time of year – there is so much fun to be had dressing up, decorating pumpkins, and baking delicious treats.
Did you know Trick-or-Treating began in Scotland? The Scottish tradition of ‘Guising’ was first recorded in 1895, where masqueraders, in disguise as spirits of the dead, would carry lanterns made from scooped out turnips and visit homes to be rewarded with cakes, fruit and money.
If you’re looking for your own original and cosy Halloween outfit for Trick-Or-Treat night then why not consider our cheeky Pumpkin and Day of the Dead sweatshirts?
Or how about a greedy Owl jumper? ….team it with the printable owl mask below!
Last Halloween we brought you the Tootsa Day of the Dead Printable Mask and this year (due to popular demand) there is a brand new mask to print, colour, and wear…. a Spooky Owl. Print, get creative and hey presto, your “Guising” costume is well on its way!
Share your finished masks on social media with the hashtags #TootsaMacGintyComp and #OwlMask and on October 31st we will select 3 masks at random to be sent an owl sweatshirt. Good luck!
When it comes to decorating the house and getting creative for Halloween there are so many ideas out there. We have chosen our 8 favourite Halloween products and DIY crafting + baking options:
