Crafty DIY Halloween Decorations


Halloween is a little over a week away (cue scary ghost noises), and hopefully you have your costume ideas set to go. If you're anything like me, you still might be lacking on the decoration side of things.

Thankfully, decorating for Halloween doesn't have to be a pricey endeavor. There are tons of great fun and easy do-it-yourself decorations that are made from materials you probably already have in your house.

Here are a few useful websites that might help get your creative juices flowing and inspire you to take the time to embrace the spooky Halloween spirit.

They also have a video tutorial that guides you through the process of making a paper spider web.
  • HGTV never fails in providing great decorating ideas for the holidays. Their Halloween section offers a wide variety of creepy Halloween crafts. I love that they have pumpkin carving templates for beginner, intermediate, and advanced carvers, so you can pick a design that meets your skill level.
