It’s time to think about Halloween and decorate your home for the arrival of the ghosts and goblins!
With each passing year, my boys get more and more excited about Halloween and costumes and trick o’ treating.
With their growing excitement, I want to decorate earlier and earlier. If like me you can’t wait to carve a pumpkin we have some fun ideas for DIY Halloween Decorations you can make.
Some are kid-friendly and others are meant for adults to create. Grab your paint, markers and craft pumpkins and get ready to create a Halloween to remember!
Make some of our Halloween Bark to nibble on while you are crafting

I really love what you did with those decorations. Everyone has gone over to the gory stuff now, and while I like that, I’m still a big fan of old school cute.
