We love Halloween! Now that’s partially because we look stunning in black, but it’s mostly because it is just such a fun and creative holiday-especially when you have kiddos around. We put together some easy Halloween DIYs this year that combine sweet with a hint of spooky, a touch of kooky, and a whole lot of fun. The best part? These projects are so simple that your little guys are going to have a blast helping you make them!
From mummy centerpieces and vampire lanterns to witch cupcake toppers and no-carve monster themed pumpkins, tackle one project or tackle them all, but either way, get ready for some serious Halloween fun!
