Hi everyone, my name is Julie and I write a little ol’ blog called, ”
I am so excited to be guest posting here for Roeshel at the DIY Showoff!
Thanks to my kiddos, I’ve got Halloween on the brain, so today I’m going to show you how to decorate for Halloween the DIY and thrifty way.
Here are my super simple projects:
Quick Craft #1 – Spooky Skulls
We love crafting at our house so I like to get my kids involved whenever I can. We made the cute little paper mache skulls you see on the cake plate above. They were so easy and inexpensive!
I bought little brown paper mache skulls from Michaels for about 99 cents each.
When they dried, I put them on this glass cake stand surrounded by spooky rats, crows, plastic spiders and spider webs all purchased at the Dollar Tree.
My kids love it!
Quick Craft #2 – Poison Bottle
This craft is even easier and it only takes a few minutes.
I found this cute little for free (I am in love with free printables!)
I feel almost silly telling you how to do this it’s so easy! I printed the label from The Graphics Fairy, cut it out and used Mod Podge to glue it to an old wine bottle I saved. The end.
I think it looks so great and fun!
Quick Craft #3:
Finally, my other easy peasy project is another printable. If you’ve been browsing blogs for awhile, you’ll know there are a lot of great freebies out there. I found this one last year at The Diary of Dave’s Wife.
I printed the sign out in high resolution and then put it into a frame I already had. Easy and free!
(Probably can’t call this last one a “craft”…”project” maybe?!)
By the way, she’s got another cute printable available this year…isn’t it fun?!
Really, there are so many great resources on the web that you can find just about anything that suits
your tastes. I personally love free printables and am currently compiling a big list of them to be
posted on my blog soon.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my quick and fun little Halloween projects today. It’s been fun being a guest DIY Show Off and I’m grateful you’ve taken the time to read my post!
