EEEEK! Luminary Bags

It’s tradition in our neighborhood to have luminary bags for Halloween. A fun way to light up the path for trick-or-treaters!

I used white paper bags from party city, found here. The idea behind this was to have “eeeek” and the rats running away in fear.

Lit up at night with LED lights.

Spiderweb Frames

Frames

Loving this simple DIY decoration- you only need frames and string! I already had some inexpensive frames, a few of which I had to spray paint black. Wrap and tie the string around to create the web.

Also as a side project, I was decorating pumpkins with rhinestones =)

 

Halloween Potions and Spells

This is a quick and easy DIY project for the perfect Halloween party scene! Create creepy concoctions using magic ingredients.

 I gathered glass jars- great place to look is Marshalls or Target clearance for mismatched jars! For taller bottles, you guessed it- wine bottles! I mean, a craft that involved having to drink wine, sure why not 🙂

Bottles

The Martha Stewart collection has some great labels, I used these 2labels

I also decided to make a few on my own, inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth. “In the caldron boil and bake; Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog”

Book of Spells- such a great find from Marshalls! One of my favorite pieces I’ve come across this year.

To complete the potion look I filled the clear jars with water and food coloring.
