A Halloween Crafternoon

We all get crafting hangovers from time to time. It starts with the best intentions, a holiday comes up and you think, “I could totally make a few short DIY projects to keep the house festive!”  An Internet search is conducted and before you know it you’re drafting a supplies list that takes up both sides of your notepad. With your hands filled with fresh supplies you waddle home and cover your kitchen table with glitter glue and ribbon.

All seems hopeful!

Fast-forward four hours later, you are peeling hot glue off your fingers and are scratching your head as you scroll over diagrams and instructions. In a fit you give up and shove your seasonal supplies in an ever growing “abandoned projects” closet.

Have no fear! Crafting can be fun and easy (and only take up one afternoon!). Here are ten super easy DIY projects to enjoy this Halloween.

Halloween Party Punch Bowl Nobiggie.net has an awesome tutorial for this festive punch bowl!


Boo Halloween Wreath- You can find wreaths like this one all over the net but who says you can’t put this together yourself?
