This is my favorite time of year. Honestly, I’m not THAT keen on Halloween, but it’s the gateway to Christmas, so I’m cool with it. One of my favorite things about this time of year is gussying up the house. I love to decorate (and love it in Spring when I strip the house of all the extras and the slate is bare and clean and simple). And, as should be NO surprise, I love adding in new, handmade elements to our decor.
Boo! Blocks '05
Since i love it so much, I’m always on the look out for things I can add.
I love the glowing jack-0 lanterns at Not So Idle Hands. In fact, I’m saving jars because I am SO making it.
I also liked the Creepy Halloween Apothecary from the Idea Room. It would make a great center piece for a Halloween party, don’t you think?
Really like these spooky ghosts from Not2Crafty.
I admit it. I like Disney. I LOVE that Family Fun has a selection of FREE Disney character pumpkin carving templates.
How about making your own White Chocolate Ghost Suckers with Roots and Wings?
Or, Mummy dogs with the Idea Room?
I love these mummy treat cups from The Celebration Shoppe
Adore these fondant ghost cupcakes from Not So Idle Hands. Wondering if I can make those work for the Princess’s halloween party…
Martha Stewart and Family Fun Magazine always have huge Halloween features with tons of fun ideas that are well worth checking out too.
