halloween crafts

Halloween may be just around the corner, but you still have time to prepare for the revelers and trick-or-treaters. For Country Living‘s October issue, I decoupaged this Funkin pumpkin (the faux kind that you can use year after year!) with images of bugs and critters from Pictorial Webster’s: A Visual Dictionary of Curiosities. Decoupage may sound like a fancy word, but just mix school glue with water, and you’re in business. Check out the full instructions right here.

For a good scare, give out these finger-shaped pens as favors. They’re the perfect sugar-free alternative to candy, and a snap to make. For an extra creep factor, be sure to use red ink pens instead of black for a subtle hint of blood. Check out the full instructions here.

Happy Halloween!
