Halloween is next weekend! Even though my house is already decorated I’ve been online looking at lots of fun and creative holiday ideas. There’s always room for last minute inspiration! I thought you might enjoy a some of the things I’ve found so I’m sharing a few of my favorite discoveries.
So cute and so easy you could wait until the very last minute to put these together if you find yourself in a time crunch! Simply fill glass containers with candy corn and white pillars and you’ve got sweet seasonal decor or a table centerpiece.
Pair the candy corn candles above with a candy corn wreath and you’ve got a decorating theme going! This wreath obviously takes a bit of time to put together but it’s easy – check out the project instructions.
Place one of these leggy candle holders at each placesetting on your Halloween table. Cut off the top and clean the inside of a mini-pumpkin, add 8 furry black pipe cleaners and bend into legs, then pop in a votive (I think black or purple would be an interesting alternative to white).
Copy old photos from history books, mount on dark card stock or matte frames, string some cobwebs and you’ve got a haunting mantel display.
Decorate in an unexpected way with this pumpkin tree. Fill bookshelves with pumpkins (notice how the bottom shelf is two stacked pumkins due to the height?) and sketch a tree shape onto them so it seems to grow right through the shelves. Then remove the pumpkins and paint them with black craft paint. Once the paint dries restack your tree. If you use real pumpkins make sure your shelves can hold the weight. An alternative is to use the fun-foam pumpkins available at craft stores.
Have a blazing good time on Halloween with flaming pumpkins! For flame stencil and full instructions click here.
Kids will love posing this cute magnetic skeleton so it’s entertainment, plus a decoration, and maybe a reminder not to eat to sneak too much of the kids’ Trick or Treat candy! Get free clip art for the design and copy it onto white paper.
