Raise your hand if you like DIY!?
Raise your hand if you like pumpkin shaped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!?
Raise your hand if you’ve actually raised your hand!?
Perusing that addictive Pinterest like every other red-blooded American with a penchant for “pinning” ideas of which 99% never come to fruition, I have been finding some fun Halloween DIY (Do It Yourself for the non-Home Depot-shopping folks like myself) ideas, some of which are truly adorbs or super grody if that’s your bag.
Feel free to follow me on Pinterest to see what I’m “pinning” but not actually cooking, baking, inspiring, crocheting, motivating, organizing, sewing, felting, painting, knitting, reading or DIY-ing.
1. Head in a Jar
We’re starting with the grody. Who doesn’t love a creepy head inside a jar filled with colored water? I know this gal sure does! Check out instructables.com for full instructions!
2. Black Cats and Pumpkins
You guysssssss…. You don’t even have to be a crazy cat lady to appreciate these little creatures. Could they be any cuter? And I honestly think this is a DIY I could actually DIM (Do It Myself in case you’re confused.) Find full instructions and a whole bunch of other super cute ideas on the blog Clover House at ourcloverhouse.blogspot.com!
3. Candy Corn Candle Holder
Can you even with the candy corns? Who has a bazillion left-over holders from the Bath and Body Works 3-wick candles? (To remove any wax, pop the candle holder in the freezer for a couple of days and the wax will come right out in one piece with a little prodding on the edges.) Fill with candy corns and squeeze in a tea light. Voila! Super cheap DIY. That you can eat later. I mean, talk about a marriage made in heaven!
4. Vampire Pumpkins
So Martha Stewart likes a little fang with her pumpkin? Hmmm, I wonder if jail brought out the more spicy side of Ms. “It’s a Good(y) Thing” Two Shoes? Whatever the reason, I like it! This looks to be a super simple and fantastic way to amp up the sauce on those adorable little pumpkins that you just can’t resist popping into your cart at the grocery store, alongside the package of those pumpkin shaped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and the candy corns you need for the #3 DIY. You can find full instructions at marthastewart.com.
5. Tin Can Luminaries
And lastly, we have these ridiculously cute luminaries. I drink coffee. Lots of it. And I’m always trying to come up with a way to reuse the cans. I think this is a genius idea and one I will definitely be DIM-ing this season! After I drink all the coffee, of course. A girl’s got her priorities. Find the full instructions at jollymom.com.
I hope you enjoyed these Halloween DIY ideas and maybe even found one or two you will be trying! Actually trying. Like really trying. You can follow my board on Pinterest for more ideas and inspirations or maybe to just take a look at all the things I plan on “doing”. See what I did there? “Doing” in quotes. I need help.
