Easy DIY Halloween Crafts

Halloween is almost here!  I love scoping out clearance sections for deals on seasonal decor.  My favorites are Target, Williams-Sonoma, Bath & Body Works and Kohl's - unfortunately, it can be hit or miss at times.  Sometimes, stores will have great looking decor at winning prices, and other times, they seem to market cheaply made or too-trendy items that aren't even worth purchasing at 90% off.  An easy way to add items to your seasonal collection is to make your own.

I found Kathleen's tutorial, wherein she used styrofoam pumpkins, a hole saw, glue and glitter to create shimmery, pumpkin candle holders.  Hello?!  Candles?  GLITTER?  Sign me up.  I got lucky, and found these silver, glittered craft pumpkins, so all they needed was a little saw action.  BOOM! Done.

For an easy, Halloween countdown, I purchased a large, foam pumpkin and covered it in chalkboard spray.  We update it daily, with a liquid chalk pen.

Have you seen these vampire pumpkins, that Martha's team created?  Here's my version - minus the map tacks, and with foam pumpkins instead of the real deal.

Allie had such a great idea, with these spider magnets - they were so cheap and simple to make.  I purchased a bag of spider rings, and clipped off the ring portion.  Then, I took a pack of magnets and cut them down, using hot glue to affix them to the back of the spiders.  You can arrange them any way you like!

  5. I love the spiders on the fridge. Although I think it might scare the crap out of me at night. Dropping by from the SITS linky blog hop.

    1. Nessa, they're about as creepy as I like it to get around here, decoration-wise. They've spooked me a couple of times, catching them out of the corner of my eye. Haha!
