Get Your DIY on: Spooky Outdoor Decor (& Features!)



Well Halloween is just 10 days away!  It’s coming up on us fast now. 

We have  a ton of trick-or-treaters that come to our door and I seem to spend more and more on candy every year!   I’ve probably eaten a bag or two already…mmm….I love chocolate. Last year the first thing my oldest son went for was a popcorn ball. What?! Who does that? And one of my dearest friends, Christa,  loves those chewy peanut butter things in the orange and black wrappers…She was giving those out one year and I told her she was never going to get any trick-or-treaters the next year for giving those out ha ha!  See, we’re all different and that’s what makes us unique 🙂

Thank you to all who linked up last week with your amazing Halloween Thrifty Decorations!  We had everything from super spooky to cute and creative!  Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Here are some of my favorites from last week’s party. There was so much creativity flowing!

First up are these amazing Pumpkin Cuties in a Jar by the very funny Lisa of Hoopla Palooza. You have to visit to see all the fine detail she put into each one to give it personality!

Next, I love this adorable DIY Ghost Tutu Costume by Katie from The Casual Craflete.  Look at that face…a sweet costume for a sweet little girl. 🙂

How about a vintage Halloween? Beeutiful by Design shows how to create these pretty vintage Halloween tags. She put together a beautiful Halloween tree with them!

Next up is this super fun Trick for a Treat Halloween Wreath by Cindy from Little Miss Celebration. As she puts it, the front door get’s a mix of whimsy, quirk , and a little glam! I love it!

Finally, I love the simplicity and fun factor of these DIY Halloween Lights by Jeannie (and her little 3 1/2 year old grandson) from For What it’s Worth. This is an awesome project to let the kids help with!
