Best of Halloween Head!

Valloween has come and passed, and Halloween seems so far away. But fear not spooky friends, because this time in-between seasons has me feeling nostalgic and looking back on my past blog posts.

I figured now would be a great time to revisit some of my favorite posts, recipes and DIYs to keep the spirit of Halloween alive during this chilly and bleak transition into spring.

Take a look back at my favorite posts with me…

DIY Vintage Halloween Cat Pail

DIY vintage cat pail

If you get tired of too many orange plastic pumpkin pails in your house or attic – don’t throw them out! Instead, breathe new life into them and make them into a creepy cat (one that is vintage inspired at that!). This idea didn’t just come to me – I actually stumbled on the idea years ago on Pinterest and have been meaning to give it a try myself.  I had to buy a pumpkin pail (believe it or not, I did not have an extra one laying around!) to create my cat pail. I snagged one for $1 (which is typically what they cost at the store) at the flea market weeks ago.  At one point, I did have lots of pumpkin head pails because I always pot mums in them and set them around the front porch this time of year, however I am a lazy gardener and housekeeper and they got busted and faded by the elements just chilling out in my backyard. I’ve learned my lesson from that – respect your pumpkin pails, and in return they’ll respect you and your creativity.

DIY Foam Board Coffin Decoration

I’ve seen some large fabric pop-up coffin decorations the past few years and I wanted to try to recreate my own. The price tag on many of them usually cost $30 or more and I only spent $3 on mine! I will confess – I am a bit of an impatient crafter (this is something I’m working on), therefore my lines are never straight and I tend to eyeball things too often, but the imperfections make it unique, right? Here’s how I made my DIY Coffin prop from foam board from the Dollar Tree if you’d like to make one of your own:

I search the Facebook marketplace from time to time looking for vintage Halloween accents and decor (specifically blow molds) and stumbled across a “lot” of Halloween loot. The original post said $20, but I offered $15 (I’m always looking for the best deal) and the seller graciously accepted my offer.

My 2017 Creepy Castle

Haunt the halls with ghouls and goblins, eek, eek, eek, eek, eek, eek, eek, eek, eek! (That’s how the song should go, right?)

Today’s post are some photos of how I decorated the inside of my house. I’ve been slowly gathering even more haunting knick-knacks for this year’s decorating. I hope some of my display will inspire your decorating as well! Now that 4th of July has passed, I’m so ready to begin putting out the creepies! I probably won’t start until the first weekend of September. That’s not too early…
