Not So Spooky Halloween Ideas :: DIY Network Feature

Share To:

Last week, I shared some of the ideas we put together for DIY Network for our Black + White Halloween Decorating Ideas feature. Today I’m sharing more ideas we created for DIY Network, but these are a little less spooky and a lot more fun!  This gallery is called Fun, Easy-to-Make Halloween Decorations and I hope you will try some of these ideas to celebrate Halloween this year! From a countdown calendar, to an easy spider cake and festive place setting, these ideas are super easy to create. My kids having been waiting since July (when we did the shoot) for the countdown calendar to begin! Here are a few peeks of the projects and be sure to visit DIY Network for more ideas, photos, tutorials and printables!

    Sorry to bug you, but any idea when the download for the Calendar will be up? I am trying to get this project done with my kids by this weekend if possible 🙂

    Also, just an FYI, the download for the chair swag sign banner from the post a few days ago has never been uploaded.

    Thanks for all these free downloads….I can’t wait to make both projects!!

  10. hi. 🙂

    LOVE this halloween calendar idea, bought the chevron bags and just wanted to know when you think the download for the numbers will be up??? thank you so much for sharing all your amazing, creative ideas! 🙂

  11. Love this idea. We should work on an Adult themed Trick or Treating party with cocktails instead of candy! 😉
