In case you were looking for a little extra something to do this weekend (especially given the snowy forecast, fellow DC residents), here are three fabulously cute Halloween DIY projects! They’re not too difficult, expensive, or time consuming…because honestly, we all have more important things to do than decoupage all day but we still want some monster cupcakes, you know?
1.) Monster Cupcakes via Annie’s Eats.
Words can’t explain the cuteness of these treats, which are fairly easy to make if you have some basic baking tools laying around. Plus, how can you resist all that icing! Follow along to the how-to here.
2.) Pumpkin Favor Pouches from Martha Stewart
This is easy, you guys. Seriously. I’ll direct you to the DIY, but basically you take orange crepe paper (or double or triple layered tissue), throw some candies in the center, twist it up into a ball, and seal the “stem” with green masking tape. That’s it!
3.) Modern Pumpkin Displays
This DIY is as easy as you can get – it’s pretty much a make-it-up-as-you-go-along thing. Perfect for those of you who don’t like instructions! Grab some house paint, some glitter, some japanese masking tape, or even decorative nail heads (which you punch directly into the pumpkin to “stud” it). Have fun, break rules, and get the pumpkin that says “You!” and not “Third Grade Class Party Craft.!” For a super sleek and sophisticated look, you can even just spray a bunch of pumpkins white and call it a day. Very “too cool for school” and celebratory at the same time!
Have anyone else tried or seen any other Halloween-themed DIY’s? If so, I’d love to hear about them!
Have a great weekend doing whatever it is you do to prep for Halloween! For me, it’s hiding the candy I hoard from my husband and trying to finish off the makings of a tiny spaceman.
