I am officially in love with Halloween crafting and decorating!!!! I have to admit…I always thought that decorating for Halloween can be kind of cheesy and tacky and so I never really got into it. And then I had kids. Oh man, everything changed! The kiddos just love it when I decorate for the Holidays and my youngest, especially, LOVES when I decorate the home in “spooky” stuff 🙂 So this year, I have been making it a priority to handmade some unique items for the home that are special to my boys that we can all enjoy year after year! And my favorite — by FAR — is the advent calendar I made as a countdown to Halloween.

Isn’t it just so fun!!! I had this leftover pumpkin wall hanging decor from last year that I painted in black chalkboard paint to make it extra spooky! 🙂 I found these little cardboard stock pockets (all from Hobby Lobby by the way) 10 pack for $1.99! A steal! They did have a sweet little scallop on the top of the pouch but unfortunately, all wouldn’t fit on pumpkin 🙁 So I had to trim that off. But I added these sweet little circle stickers (with googly eyes! Eek!!) and hand wrote the dates on them and they turned out pretty stickin’ cute I think!! I added a sweet little touch by lining the rows with adorable ribbon that I scoped out at Hobby Lobby and then hot glued the rows of pouches on it. Added some haunted house stickers and chalkboard lettering on the bottom and bam! A fun little craft that the kiddos can enjoy all month long!!

By now, you probably all know my love for Holiday wreaths! I just adore making wreaths that are true to the season and I don’t know…I think it’s kinda fun to have various wreathes on the door depicting the season! 🙂 Here is a peek of the one I made for Halloween!

So fun and glitzy huh?! I am loving the glitter and gold, kind of a classier spin on Halloween decor! All supplies again for this craft are from Hobby Lobby…I mean, duh!! Haha, I just love that store 🙂 This was definitely a fun one to make!

I’m in love with these cute lil’ guys! My youngest likes to play ‘musical hats’ with them and that is always a fun little game to make him laugh 🙂

Welp, that’s it…for now! I’m sure I will have many for to share with you and maybe even a tutorial or two! Make sure to follow along! Thanks all!
