Halloween Project Roundup

One week to go until Halloween! I haven’t unpacked the decorations this year since I expected to be packing everything up, so I looked back through the blog to round up some past Halloweeny crafts. All super quick and easy, or course!

Cursive Skeletons

I found this idea in an old Mailbox magazine from my teaching days, and couldn’t resist a craft afternoon in San Fran.

Giant Modern Cross Stitch

Spiders, Skulls, and boo! Oh my… these posters made the move and I can’t wait to bring them out again next year! Super easy 30-minute project – all you need is poster board, needle, and thread.

Reversible Bunting

The Amateur Librarian // Quick & Easy Halloween Treats

Gotta love bunting!  Halloween fabrics on one side, Thanksgiving on the other side… 2-in-1 lasts all season!

Spider Web Cupcakes

I can’t do anything fancy when it comes to baked goods, but these look pretty cute with no effort at all!

Patchwork Pumpkin Wall Hanging/Table Topper

The Amateur Librarian // Quick & Easy Halloween Treats

One year it was a wall hanging, the next year they worked as a table runner in the dining room. Lots of crazy novelty prints make up the patchwork pumpkin and string blocks.

Last year’s work-appropriate costume: Rosie the Riveter!  (Thanks, Pinterest!)

All you need: chambray shirt, red kerchief, & lipstick!  And be prepared to show off your guns all day long, of course 🙂

Cheers to a spooky Halloween!
