15 DIY Halloween Projects

UPDATE: In response to the emails I’ve received from folks who love these ideas but don’t want to DIY, I’ve added links to similar items that you can purchase directly. I get it. I’m kind of over the DIY thing at the moment, too, so many thanks to my amazing readers for pulling the trigger to add some shopping links. Some of these links are affiliate links which means, I get a small commission if you click and purchase which my family is uber grateful for! The commission doesn’t affect your cost at all and I get to keep buying peanut butter for the kid that won’t eat anything else. xoxo


If you’re a regular around here, you know I post on average around three times a week and never two or three days in a row. But this is a special week. First, it’s Halloween next weekend and I thought I’d share some last minute Halloween ideas with everyone (including yesterday’s Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats….which I cannot. stop. eating.) And secondly, I’ve been invited to co-host a mid-week link party with Robin at Fluster Buster at the Creative Muster Party Tomorrow night. Mucho fun! Who says you can’t have two parties in a week?

In the meantime, there’s less than a week until Halloween so if you’re still trying to come up with some last minute ideas, here are 15 great Halloween Projects to take a peak at.

  1. Okay, this list gets me a bit reved up about maybe decorating for Halloween next year. We do have some decorations, somehow this year it didn’t get put out. But I don’t have cool stuff like this! Love the striped Mason jar, your black and multicolored pumpkins, I’m pinning this for next year, you never know, I might get into the swing of it! Thanks for inspiring me!

    • Nikki, I didn’t even bother with Halloween for years…The boys changed all of that. I think I’d be referring to it as wine and candy night otherwise 😉

  2. Now Jenna. You know I love ya. So stop bending my brain, okay? All of these just blow my mind. You are so gosh darned clever! Thanks for sharing at Five Star Frou-Frou last week. Mimi xxx
