Check out this post and other crafty inspiration over at our new blog!
Good Morning and welcome to… Freaky Friday… aka our last Friday before Halloween (EEK!). If you are anything like me, your life is too hectic to keep track of all these holidays and actually plan in advance. Halloween wreath? Unfinished and laying on my kitchen table (who needs a place to eat anyways?). But you bet I had time to make one for my sister-in-law, lol. Oh, priorities… anywho. Today we will be showcasing our TOP 5 (and totally do-able in a weekend) blog posts and projects so you can spend the next two days cluttering up the house with your awesome Halloween décor! BUT FIRST… we have to announce our awesome GIVE-A-WAY winner! (drum roll, please…)
Whoot Whoot! — please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your awesome prize!
Did you miss your chance to enter? Don’t fret! We’ll be doing this again real soon, so be sure to check our posts! OR better yet, subscribe via email to have all the latest and greatest delivered straight to your inbox!
Now… on to the fun and games! First on our list is…
This awesome DIY Halloween Shadow Box box by U-Create can really add some dimension to your décor! Hang it on a wall, put it on your mantle, whatever you want to do! And the best part? No craft experience or tools required! Be sure to check out her blog for all the information you need to put this on your project list! While you’re there, check out her other awesome posts, my other favorite is the Trick or Treat Witch Bag Tutorial! I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Second (only in title) is…
Isn’t that a beautiful mantle? Decorating your mantle really helps add a lot of pizzazz to your room! AND, you don’t have to do traditional Halloween items, just grab a little of this and that and make it your own! Check out all the wonderful ideas from Create and Babble, including the tutorial on making that awesome “Boo” frame (Crafting With Glitter Just Got Easier)! She makes it look sssooo easy!
All good things come in threes!
Now you can’t tell me that this doesn’t apply to at least a few of us! I know a sign that will be on my front door by Halloween! Of course, I mean the part about the monsters, I don’t know who that Wicked Witch could be referring to… Be sure to check out Giggles Galore for a better close-up of this amazing Beware Halloween Sign!
Four all good things must come to an end…
Who doesn’t love printables? Not only are these super-cute and amazing ideas, they are perfect for your last minute decorating! Maybe you’re throwing a Halloween party? Check. Maybe you need some goodies to give out to friends or family. Check. Maybe you just want to dress up the house with cute projects with the kids? Check. My Sister’s Suitcase has put together a wonderful post on a Halloween Treat Tag Printable + Printable Blog Hop that you just have to check out! When you finish, don’t stop there! Check out the rest of their blog for even more wonderful Halloween ideas!
Now here’s where I test your math skills… I did say TOP 5, right? Okay, so we have one more special project for you today… OURS! (LOL) For our fabulous #5…
Can you say “Oh, my goodness!”? I know, cute as can be. And the perfect last-minute project for all your Halloweenie friends! If you haven’t figured it out by now, this is a cute little door-hanger treat bag! Stuff it full of treats and hang it on every door you find! Okay, maybe not EVERY one, but what a cute idea for your co-workers and neighbors… or start Halloween off right with hanging these on your children’s bedroom doors!
Want to make your own? Well, we’ll admit that Silhouette makes it super easy by giving us the cut file in the Silhouette Online Store. With such a versatile template, you can dress up the front to be any design you want it to be — scary, spooky, cute or all three!
Not interested in making your own but still want to give these to give out? Not a problem. Check out our Etsy listing! I will say that we’re running out of time for shipping, but especially if you are in my local area, we can get these to you before Halloween!
We hope you had fun looking at all these amazing Halloween crafts (we sure did!). Be sure to jot down a few notes and hit up a few blogs to finish off your Halloween décor and project list! As always, stay tuned for more awesome posts to come… Sunday’s post starts with a “P” and ends with an “umpkins!” Until then, don’t forget to subscribe to our blog!
