I absolutely love vintage Beistle Halloween decor and artwork and I love that you can order reproductions too!

This summer I ordered some die cut Beistle Halloween decorations from Amazon and have been pondering how I was going to incorporate them into my haunted house this fall.

The Story of Jack: the Scarecrow Blow Mold

I want to tell you the story about my favorite blow mold, which is named Jack. I’m not sure if my father coined the name Jack or if it was me – but somehow this blow mold ended up being called Jack!

DIY Mesh Dollar Tree Halloween Wreath

The Dollar Tree is full of spooktacular ideas and craft supplies around this time of year. I confess, I try to stop in once a week or once every couple weeks to see what is new in stores for Halloween around this time of year.

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:
