Halloween Crafts on Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Link Party 

 Halloween is coming soon and I love fun Halloween decorations.  I'm having so much fun visiting all of your fabulous posts. We have some great features for you this week.  Enjoy!

Missed the party last week? Check it out here!

This Week's Features

Decorative pillows can be quite expensive, especially holiday pillows. Our own Bev of Eclectic Red Barn made these adorable Halloween pillows using Dollar Tree treat bags, so they were only $1.25! She chose bags made of fabric perfect for outdoor decor. Her tutorial is quick & easy, so be sure to check it out and pin it for later. (Be sure to do that with all of our fabulous features!

This Frankenstein card craft, created by Sam of Simple Everyday Mom, is an adorable idea to create with your kids or even to use in your classroom for our teachers out there! This card would be a great craft to create with your kids for a fun fall afternoon together. You could send them to grandparents, aunts, or friends, and they proudly display them year after year as Halloween decor. I still have cards that my kids made in school or Sunday school that I use as Christmas decorations. I wish a teacher had had either of my kiddos make this Franken-cutie!

Jennifer of Studio 27 came up with the fabulous idea of upcycling a Halloween baking pan that she found at a thrift store into a permanent faux cake decor piece. She used puffy paint so that her Halloween "cake" looks like it actually has icing on it. This is right up my alley since crafting is way more fun for me than baking. I don't think I could make a real cake look this great, lol!

For our last two features this week, I thought I'd bring us a few Halloween adult ideas. Donna of An Organized Season created a Halloween Haunted Mansion themed bedroom which is so cute! She has Halloween decor sprinkled throughout the room, like this apothecary dresser set-up. Check out her full post to see all of the bedroom decor. It's amazing inspiration for your own Halloween bedroom!

Need a little adult beverage for your Halloween party goers, one to liven up the night while handing out candy to trick or treaters, or even one to enjoy in your beautifully decorated master bedroom? Raquel over at Organized Island has the perfect recipe for you- this spooky looking black martini! It might look like something a witch would use to poison her victims, but the ingredients create a delicious concoction everyone's sure to enjoy!

Did you know we have a Pinterest Board where all features are saved to?  Save our pins to your own board for your future reference, easy peasy!
