Get in the spooky spirit with fright night-ready projects that feature pumpkins, ghosts, fall leaves and goody totes sporting wicked cute iron-on transfers
When it comes to Halloween, I don't mind seeing craft supplies and decorations hitting the store shelves during the summer months. It gets my brain racing with spooky ideas! Are you like me? If so, you're officially allowed to get excited for Halloween crafting this week: October is just a week away! Our roundup today has a combination of projects for the hair-raising holiday – and autumn in general – that are sure to get you scheming. What types of craft projects are you already thinking of for your family this year?
The dollar store is often a great resource for craft supplies. On Dollar Store Crafts, you'll find an idea for transforming a simple pumpkin decoration into an autumn-colored wall hanging. Just add some of your favorite ribbon, and this big pumpkin is all you need!
Googly eyes make everything better – even when it comes to spooky ghosts. Melissa of No. 2 Pencil transformed a set of empty Mason jars into a collection of friendlier ghosts thanks to a coat of spray paint. And those wiggly peepers, of course!
These no-sew finger puppets are a great way to use up scrap felt pieces in your craft closet. Add some decorations and faces and these wee critters are ready to go for the next puppet show.
The design team at Stampin' Up! took a set of their mini muslin bags and decorated them with a text-heavy Halloween message by way of iron-on transfer paper they designed themselves. For Stampin' Up! fans, make sure to check this out. What types of treats would you put in a small gift bag like this?
