I’ve been seeing these skeletons with flowers all over Pinterest and I had to make one! Mine won’t just be Halloween decor though. It’s going to stay up all year around.
A friend described it as macabre. I don’t disagree with that but still, I find it so beautiful! Maybe it has more to do with the vibrant flowers against the neutral skeleton body than it does with the topic in general.
Halloween crafts are my favorite ones! Mostly because I love the color black (don’t judge) and candles for their luminescence. So many of them include at least one of those things. Today, I’m combining them and making these cute DIY Halloween Luminaries!
This is a great craft to do on your own or with kids. You might want to cut everything out in advance if you’re doing this with the little ones though. It works well because assembling doesn’t take long so it will keep their attention. Read the whole post
If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I love candles. It’s actually surprising to me how many candle related crafts I’ve made, from the actual candle to holders, and now luminaries.
Fall and Halloween are known for their candle crafts. There’s something… I don’t know, mysterious, or maybe eerie, about candles during this season, so luminaries are the perfect addition to your decor.
Halloween is right around the corner and trick or treaters are ready for their candy.
Every year, the apartment complex I live in participates in trick or treating for the kids in the building and I always use it as an opportunity to get creative. This year, I’m aiming at the treat bags. Since I have a surplus of Halloween scrapbook paper, this was an ideal project.
Every year, the kids in my apartment complex get to participate in Trick or Treating. Unfortunately, we’re not home very often and Halloween is no exception. So, I always put a big bowl of candy outside the door and let the kids take what they want.
This year, I decided to upgrade my candy bowl by decorating a old dish washer pod container. Originally, I wanted to make a pumpkin out of it, but I couldn’t find orange Duck Tape anywhere. Read the whole post
It’s starting to get cold here in PA, and when that happens I get out my candles. They keep my apartment a little bit warmer and make the atmosphere more relaxing. Every Fall I do a few candle tutorials and this is the first one of the season. I know we’re not quite into autumn yet, but its about 64 degrees here, so it’s close enough for me.
I always save my jars because they can be used for something, whether it be craft and food storage or, in this case, candle holders. Read the whole post
The Craft Challenge theme for September is Halloween so I decided to go with pinecones and pumpkins. You know those spiced scented pinecones you smell when you walk into Michael’s? I can’t stay away from the things! They smell amazing. I had to get them into my craft this week. And I haven’t decorated pumpkins yet this year, so it just seemed fitting.
This craft is really easy, smells wonderful and will give your table or windowsill a nice pop for fall. Read the whole post
This blog post is part of The Craft Challenge. Me and 4 other bloggers challenge ourselves to bring you a creative craft tutorial based around a different theme each month. This month, the theme is Halloween. There’s a link to their crafts at the bottom of this tutorial.
How many people do you think dress up as a witch for Halloween? You always see a few of them while you’re out and about, right? That’s why I decided to make a spellbook for this month’s Halloween-themed craft. Read the whole post
Did you all know that Michael’s Craft Store is having a pumpkin decorating contest right now? You have to use one of their craft pumpkins, decorate it and upload the photo to their site. If they pick your pumpkin, you can win a $250 Michael’s gift card and $500 in craft supplies. Yep, I’m aaaaalllll over that.
This is my entry and I figured if I’m going to make it, I should share how I did it, right? Read the whole post
Every year around Halloween I’ve thought about making my own potion bottles for a Make Something Monday craft, but somehow I always get side tracked and end up working on something else. Not this year though!
This year, I planned these bottles into my craft timeline with one small change. The original plan was to design my own labels, but I found these on itsybitsyfun.com and fell in love with them. They’re perfect!

I got my bottles at Pat Catan’s but you can probably get them at any craft or hobby store, especially around this time of year. Read the whole post
