Get Your DIY on: Pumpkins {& Features!}


 Thank you all so much for linking up your spooky outdoor decor last week.  I would love to come to your house for trick or treating!!  Are you ready for the big day on Thursday? I still have  a little bit of spooky tweaking to do, but I’ll be ready! If you missed my Spooky Outdoor Halloween Tour, you can see it here.

 Let’s take a look at some of my favorites from last week’s theme:

DIY Halloween Projects

First up, I am smitten with these adorable Ping Pong Ball Ghost Lights shared by Meredith at Unoriginial Mom! Look at their little faces…so fun!

Next up, Cindy from Little Miss Celebration never ceases to amaze me. Would you believe these Skeleton Hand Sconces are a DIY project??
