Sometimes the best creepy Halloween decorations are the ones that you make! There’s nothing like celebrating the season by creating something that is eclectic that cannot be bought at a big box retailer.
While thrifting at Goodwill Tulsa, I found some great paintings that can easily transform into a creepy and charming scary accent for my Halloween display! I hope this idea inspires you to find something used and make it new again for the season.
It’s the perfect Summerween pie: Franken-Lime! This citrusy, airy, creamy and light pie is a taste of summer with a spooky twist. My husband told me he looked more like Shrek than Frankenstein because I foolishly forgot his neck bolts, so don’t make the same mistake I did when you decorate and do Frankie proud by giving him some neck bolts!
I can’t say this is an actual key lime pie because I didn’t use key limes – just regular limes and lime juice but it can certainly be modified. Regardless, it’s delicious! It could be best described as a “lime custard pie”. Recipe below:
It’s only fitting that we’d kick off Halloween shopping season with “At Home” stores because we’ve literally all been at home for the majority of 2020. But there’s nothing like feeling a bit of normalcy by seeing Halloween hit the shelves in the Summer as the official ringing in of the Halloween shopping season.
I decided to check out what my local Tulsa, OK location had on my lunch break last week with my trusty facemask and hand sanitizer in tow.
There was just a smattering of decor spooking the shelves, but it was just enough to send my Halloween heart aflutter and that all too familiar yearning for Fall!
Take a stroll down the aisles with me in the photos below!
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!
When you think about Halloween does ice cream come to mind? Perhaps I’m the only one who has ice cream on the mind all the time! It’s the perfect treat for any time of year (for some reason I think I crave it more when it gets cold than when it is hot out!).
I was thrilled when I was asked to work with FatBoy Ice Cream to share some ways that you can spookify your ice cream treats this month!
Come take a tour of my haunted abode this season! I always love to share photos of how I spooked my halls for the season to inspire you and your decorating. I have a fairly small house and not enough room sometimes to both store and display my ghoulish goodies but I try to do the best with the space I have.
My favorite addition this year is my Old Time Pottery Halloween Tree! I have always wanted to make a Halloween tree and they teamed up with me this year to make my Halloween decorating dream a reality. I could not have been more proud or excited about working with them and how it turned out.
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!
I have finally got to moving on my first Halloween craft project of the season! I wanted to do this last year but time escaped me and I couldn’t quite find exactly what I wanted at the time.
If you’re into the creepy baby doll theme, this DIY/craft inspiration is for you! I have been captivated by the creepy doll theme and wanted to take it to a whole new level by attaching doll heads to a candelabra to create a decorative art piece to haunt my home.
100 days!!! We’re almost there! The best season of all is upon us, the weather should change soon and October will be here bringing us the magic that is Halloween!
Stores have already been putting out Halloween decor and in my opinion, the Halloween season is now upon us. It feels like this year has flown by in an instant so we have to savor all of the Halloween goodness that is upon us while it lasts.
Now’s the time to start crafting, planning and creating your perfect Halloween!
Check out some of my past craft ideas and get started counting down the days until Halloween with me by making something spooky:
