DIY Halloween decor| creepy halloween glasses

I’m a big fat Halloween dud. Some people get way into the whole creeptacular decorating thing (I’m specifically looking at my sister, who started decorating for Halloween in August. August!), but I’m usually the last minute scrambler. And the scrambles usually come because the girls start looking forlorn and sighing and saying “We didn’t decorate for Halloween yet!”

This, my friends, is when the mom guilt clicks up to high and the DIY brain shifts to overdrive. Or something. Basically, I freeze momentarily and say: how do I get all of the Halloween decorations for very little money and, like, immediately?

Enter this roundup of DIYs that should take less than ten minutes each… which I totally didn’t put together for my own benefit (nudge, nudge, wink, wink).

Pick and choose your favorites (or, you know, the ones with supplies that are easiest for you to access) and take a half hour here and a half hour there to bang them out. By the end of the week, the kids will completely forget that you’re the worst because you’ll suddenly be the coolest.
