Halloween Celebrations

Halloween Decorations DIY

Halloween Decorations DIY: I honestly am the WORST at decorating for Halloween. I just have never had that much gumption to do so. The most I have ever done would be paper bats that I hung in our front entry and a scarecrow that I bought at Hobby Lobby (and it wasn’t even scary, more like happy/creepy).

This is the year I have decided to change all of that. So I asked my Pinterest guru sister, Nicole to send me some of her favorite Pins of Halloween and then I went on a search myself.

And I was completely amazed on what I found. People are so creative and amazingly talented. Be sure to check them all out, I have even shared with you which ones I will totally be doing.

Let me know if there are any that you just love or if I missed one of your favorites be sure to comment below, I totally want to check it out. XOXO San

Don’t forget to pin this to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
