Happy Quarantine-O-Ween! The first of it’s kind where the online Halloween community decided to make the best of being stuck at home by having another Halloween. Let’s scare the pants off this virus!!!
I plan to watch a scary flick, work on a Halloween project and MAYBE even bust open a bag of candy corn to nosh on with some peanuts (my favorite!).
If you will be celebrating Quarantine-O-Ween, be sure to tag your photos #quarantineoween so we can all celebrate together and enjoy a taste of October during March.
I wanted to put together a fun and quick list of some costumes that are on trend with the times and can be pulled right out of your own closet. Keep reading to see FOUR different costume ideas you could be wearing for Quarantine-O-Ween 2020!
Despite what the groundhog says, it’s still winter in Oklahoma. Today is the first good snow we have had since 2011! So I thought it would be fitting to share my DIY Halloween Snowman (which was meant to be shared for Creepmas….but I have had some crazy life events happen that I can’t wait to share with you soon!).
I have had the idea for some time now to Halloween-ify a thrifted Christmas decor object, and what better object to Halloween-ify in the winter than a jovial snowman. I think I was inspired by on my favorite and the silliest winter horror film “Jack Frost” .

The bad news I got this fall was that my braces will have to stay on a little longer than I had anticipated – but the good news is that I can pull off a Mabel Pines costume this fall without any problem!
Mabel is the brace-faced twin sister to Dipper Pines on the Disney series, Gravity Falls. I love the paranormal and supernatural adventures that ensue during Mabel and Dipper’s visits with their Great Uncle (Grunkle) Stan. They also help to run his tourist trap “Mystery Shack” – with a plot line like this you know that it is full of spooky fun for all ages (my all-time favorite episode is “Summerween!”).

I love Bob’s Burgers on Fox! It’s always been one of my favorite shows and the humor is always spot on. I love it so much so, that I decided I had to copy Gene Belcher’s Halloween costume he made this year.
I was surprised at the end of the recent episode because it actually features Fiona Apple singing the closing credits. Check out this Pitchfork article to see a photo of Gene’s Fiona Applesauce costume I was inspired to create and to learn more about Fiona apple’s special song for the Halloween episode.
I adore Fiona Apple’s music, so I knew I would equally love being her saucy aunt for Halloween.

I LOVE simple, easy and inexpensive Halloween crafts. When I saw these toilet paper fabric pumpkins sprouting up on Pinterest I knew I had to give them a try because it screamed simple, easy and inexpensive!
I also am *sadly* not much of a sewer. I attempted to sew in the past in my high school home economics class which resulted in my teacher always having to re-do my work for me. Maybe some day I’ll try again, but for now I’ll enjoy the no sew lifestyle.
Is it simply too hot to go to the pumpkin patch? It sure is here in Oklahoma! Fear not Halloween friends, these pumpkins will not spoil in the heat and are MOSTLY all weather permitting. Enjoy pumpkins year-round and keep reading for steps to make the most durable gourd of all!
I love to fill my pots and planters around the front porch with mums as soon as they are in stock in the fall. Sometimes, this is a little premature because it’s still sweltering in Oklahoma in September and my poor little mums quickly turn into crunchy nuggets instead of feathery, bushy, fall delights.
To help pass the time so that I plant my mums at the right time, I’ve decided to create some cute Frankenstein pots to adorn my spooky porch. Last year my shared creation was my mesh Halloween wreath (I feel like I made three of them…) and this year I’ve decided to make a bunch of these jolly monsters for my mom, Grandma, and friends!
You truly do not need to be an expert painter to create a Frankenstein pot and you can make them however you want – he or she is your monster masterpiece!
If you’d like some inspiration on how to make one, keep on reading!
