Upside down orange balloons make for the perfect pumpkin with a little green pipe cleaner stem. Add a spooky face with vinyl cut-outs and these balloons are almost as good as the real thing!
I freehand cut a range of spooky and silly faces from peel and stick removable vinyl for these pumpkin faces, but a black Sharpie would also do the trick!

What is Halloween without monsters?? Or should I say…monster candy buckets? These silly monsters are perfect as a treat bag (bucket) for any upcoming Halloween party, or something fun to give to the kids. They are incredibly simple to make and you can get so creative with each monster face. Plus they are just plain cute!

It’s just unfortunate that Halloween decorations are so darn expensive when you can easily make a lot of them from cheap materials you probably already have at home…. hence, DIY TRASH BAG SPIDERWEBS! They really do look pretty cool in a window, especially with a few little creepy spiders crawling on them.

Ping Pong Ball Ghost Lights – a spooky and fun Halloween project! I first discovered this DIY Halloween Decor on Craft Passion – made out of ping pong balls, gauze squares, and Mod Podge. I added my own twist to display them, though…read on to find out!

My inspiration for our Halloween soap idea came from a cool site which actually made soap with LEGO! I definitely thought we could make Halloween soap to leave by our sinks. Even if you don’t decorate much for Halloween, this would be such a cute item to add for a little punch of Halloween decor. Plus it will encourage periodic hand washing too! Making Halloween soap is super quick and easy once you have your supplies.

In the spirit of my love for fun and easy holiday crafts, today we’re making a Halloween candy inspired chocolate truffle party garland! This started as a quick, off the cuff idea for a DIY tutorial and quickly evolved into one of my favorite Halloween party ideas of the season. Inspired by the flavors and gorgeous packaging of my favorite Seattle Chocolates truffles, this is the ultimate homage to Halloween candy, bringing together the most decadent of chocolate flavors and super cute party decor. It’s really easy to make, too! You just need a whole big stash of your favorite truffle flavors, floral wire and ribbon. (Make sure to have extra truffles handy for snacking, too!)

Spray paint is the best. It’s an instant makeover in a can. The last couple of years, my halloween and holiday decor has been a little more on the colorless side, with lots of black and white. Orange pumpkins just won’t do. But, a quick coat of Design Master’s Rose Gold paint, and I’ve got fancy mini pumpkins.
All good parties have a favor, and these cute little Jack O’ Lantern succulent planters are sure to be a hit. I added simple black paper flags with guest’s names so that these favors could double as place cards as well.

Candlelight is a fairly traditional Halloween decoration, but take it up a notch by making your candles extra spooky. You’ll need multiple white candles and one red candle, and something to light the candles. Simply light the red candle and let it burn until it starts to melt and is ready to drip wax. At that point, hold the candle over your white candles and allow the red wax to drip down the side creating the illusion of blood dripping. Simple but effective.
