When hitting the Halloween clearance section, don’t just look for items to use next year, be on the look out for things that you can use right now when decorating for Thanksgiving. In this case, glittery Halloween hairspray.
OK, the last Halloween craft of the year from me, and it’s a quickie. I’m pretty sure you have all of the supplies in your house already. Ready? You will need a pretty glass bottle (I love empty Patron bottles!) or a nice looking empty jar. (If you use a jar, you will want the mouth of […]
I needed something tall to flank each side of our front door. Since I’m a symmetry girl, I wanted them to match. This is what I came up with: these faux hammered metal planters. And just for funzies, (since it’s Halloween and all) I thought a spiderweb topiary or two would be kind of cool.
I had left over strips of paper from another project, so I took a little Mod Podge and covered a pumpkin with it. I love how it turned out!
I have a wall in my dining room that is under-done 11 months of the year… but not in October. Grant loves to help me with the placement of the bats. (We like to make them look like they’re swarming towards a corner of the room.) This couldn’t be easier. Cut some bat shapes out […]

We host a Halloween Party every year, and one of the things I really enjoy doing is making the invitations. (Here are the invitations I made last year. Super easy.) While I did do a “Save the Date” over Facebook at the beginning of the month, I think there’s just something special about getting an actual invitation […]
Last year I snapped up a cool old globe for 50 cents at a yard sale and I used chalkboard paint to make a Scary Places Halloween Globe. Well, it’s been sitting in the garage since last Halloween and I’ve been thinking about how to change it up for this year without ruining the […]
I recently got to play around with a Tulip Tie Dye Kit, and I was pretty excited to do so because they asked me to tie dye something for the home. Not a T shirt, not a tank top, but something decorative. OK! Here’s what I ended up doing… an ombre tie-dye basket: This started […]
