Guys, It Isn't Too Early To Start Working On These Fun Halloween DIYs

Diply 12 Sep 2018

According to The Calendar of Katie, it's perfectly acceptable to start thinking about Halloween the second September 1st hits. For me, this day marks the beginning of fall (even though the season doesn't technically start until mid-September, but that's a fact I choose to ignore).

And the beginning of fall means the start of anything and everything Halloween, including DIY articles!

1. DIY Skeleton Hand Wreath

If you've ever looked at premade wreaths at your local craft or home decor store, you know how ridiculously expensive they can be. That's why I decided a very long time ago that I would always make my own wreaths, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made!

Making your own wreaths is fun because there are literally no rules or limitations when it comes to the designs you can create.

Take this creepy skeleton wreath by Eighteen25 as a perfect example. It's nothing more than a collection of spray-painted hands from the dollar store glued to a circular piece of chalkboard, and yet it looks like a million bucks.

Have you ever walked up and down the aisles of a thrift store and thought to yourself, "Who would ever buy any of this?!"? I know I have!

And that's why I love Sadie Seasongoods so much, because she's able to see things in secondhand items that most of us could never imagine.

Believe it or not, expanding insulation foam is what gave these pieces of decor their bubbling appearance, which means this project is something anyone with access to a hardware store can recreate!

For those of you who've spent your fair share of time on Pinterest and other DIY-related sites, you're probably familiar with techniques like marbling, pouring, and dripping.

And while these popular techniques are usually used to give things like glassware, nails, and dishes a fun, new look, they can also be applied to pumpkins.

I wanted to leave this DIY for last because it's the creepiest of them all! Obviously, when it comes to Halloween, the creepier something is, the better (most of the time, anyway, lol).

Michelle of Crafty Morning used empty glass jars and life-like masks to create heart-stopping pieces that would give anyone a fright.

The finishing touches were some water and a couple of glow sticks, both of which kicked the creep-factor of this DIY into high gear!
