Month Of Scares - 7 Halloween DIYs To Try

There are so many amazing Halloween DIYs out there to choose from so today I thought I would share some of those that, although I didn't have time for this year, have bookmarked to try in the future.

1. Monster Pouch (via A Creative Cookie)
These cute little felt pouches would be great not just for Halloween but also as phone or tablet cases all year round. This project does require a little stitching however you could always use a glue gun if sewing isn't your thing.

2. Book Page Pumpkin Patch (via Saved By Love Creations)
Last year I made paper Christmas tree decorations using book pages and loved the look you can achieve with printed paper. These little pumpkins are made using similar supplies and would be perfect for a Halloween party. The raffia and bead embellishments are a great touch as well.

3. Paranormal Portraits (via Country Living)
These spooky framed portraits are an idea for those wanting a more ambitious Halloween project as they require LED lights and a little more preparation time. However, the finished product would definitely look amazing at a party, plus you could always save the lights to reuse at Christmas!

4. Flannel Halloween Face Pillows (via eighteen25)
These cushion covers featuring a ghost, pumpkin, cat and monster are adorable and could be easily customised with your own design ideas. Again, this one requires some basic sewing skills but don't let that put you off having a go - if you don't want to sew the whole thing, buy ready made covers and just add on the faces.

5. Spooky Halloween Glasses (via Now That's Pretty)
If you're always saving up glass jars but don't know what projects to use them for then this is the one for you. Grab yourself some black vinyl stickers and create some spooky glasses for your party guests to drink out of. The post also suggests adding food colouring to milk to achieve the appropriate colours.

6. Simple Halloween Bunting (via Simple As That)
Another way to use up old book pages or newspaper is to make yourself a string of Halloween bunting with a more sophisticated look. These have a classic bat design embellished with buttons but of course you could opt for any other Halloween-appropriate shape too.

7. Halloween Embroidery Hoop Art: Spider Web (via Do Small Things With Love)
This simple but unique decoration made using black lace, white thread, an embroidery hoop and a toy spider is perfect for Halloween.
