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, clipped off the ring parts and sprayed them black. 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!
