5 DIYs for Halloween

This is a super simple DIY tutorial brought to you by blogger Delia Creates. Even though I sew, I love the idea of anything that requires minimal effort.

If you are like me and live in an apartment building that is surrounded by rogue alley-cats that destroy everything, then the idea of carving pumpkins and putting them outside is a "no go". Why not buy a bunch of plastic pumpkins and paint them with personality? This one is a set of 15 DIY Painted Pumpkin tutorials from The Nest.

When I saw this I thought to myself, "DAMN IT!! WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT!" And yes, it was internally versed my loud inside-my-head voice. This tutorial comes from Moms and Munchkins. It includes the full cookie recipe as well, but I have a feeling the lazy of us ladies will be using tube cookies.

This one comes from How About Orange. And I know it is almost totally reusing the spiderweb cape idea. However, I like this way better than spreading around that insane plastic-cottony-fiber-mess all over the place. If I don't like walking through real spiderwebs, why would I walk through fake ones? Huh? Answer me that!

And last but not least. Pineapple Jack-o-Laterns!!

I just plain like this. I really don't know how well it stands up to the test of time. I'd imagine that it becomes a giant mess after a day. However, for anyone that lives in a warmer climate (such as myself) this would be a fantastic centerpiece for that, "Halloween Themed Luau" you always wanted to throw. Oh wait, that's me. Regardless, thank you to A Subtle Revelry for this and other Halloween ideas on her page.
