I Got The Itch To Add...


So, last week, I posted about my DIY Halloween Decor. I love it every year I put it up! Halloween is my favorite of the holidays, truth be told, because I'm just a lunatic for anything spooky.

Anyway, through my travels on the interwebs and the blogosphere, I have discovered several things I suddenly have decided I cannot do without. Incredibly, my decor is not enough on it's own! Who knew? LOL It's all right, though. The Hubster is used to it. I make these discoveries every year (regardless of the fact that I always claim to be "finished" with my outdoor decor).

First up, I found these awesome ideas on Better Homes and Gardens:

I'll admit it - I'm weak on the front door sometimes. It's just so normal and I'm definitely a old school horror freak. I really like the simplicity of this door decor!


In keeping with the silhouette idea, I thought this witch is super-cool! Plus, this particular entry comes with a free pattern for the witch! Easy-Peasy!!


How cool are these cauldrons?! Done with spray foam insulation and some paint! I even have the cauldron already and I never know what to put inside it! I'm loving this one!


I think this is my favorite of all from BHG and it's so simple, but perfect for my graveyard! Tomorrow I'm digging out my wheelbarrow for sure and I know I have some potting soil left over from spring planting!


From the Blogosphere, I found this awesome TUTORIAL on The Thriftiness Miss by Priscilla from Thrifty Crafty Girl. I have to make these candles! I think they are even cooler than the expensive ones I've seen at the Halloween stores!


And, finally, check out this creepy, fog-spewing jack-o-lantern TUTORIAL I found on Squidoo! I've always wanted one of those big outdoor fog machines, but they are expensive! But this is so cute and would serve the same effect without having to disguise the machine!

So, what do you think? I know, I know...I have an addiction to Halloween! LOL What have you seen this online for Halloween that has inspired you to get your "craft" on? Not witchcraft - CRAFT craft!

Creative indeed. I agree with you, I enjoy Halloween a lot. It's a fun holiday to just get spookalicious. Good idea on the cauldrons, I must try. Thanks for linking up to the Empowered Living Blog hop, look forward to seeing more of you.

There is nothing wrong with being addicted to Halloween! I love seeing the decorations that some of my neighbors put up this time a year, but it also gets me anxious to see Christmas decor as well. It looks like the items you found were easy to make and I hope you get to go all-out on your decor.
