DIY: Halloween Special

Even though it seems to me like October has only just begun, we're rushing towards its last day: Halloween. I've always loved this festivity and while I stayed up late to watch Halloween special cartoons when I was a kid, I threw a super cool Halloween party with my friends last year. This year I'm still not sure what I'm going to do, maybe I'll rather come back to my childhood habits than organize another party. That's why I will probably not get really creative at Halloween decoration and DIYs myself but I saw a few awesome tutorials which I wanted to share with you, just in case you want to turn this year's Halloween into something really big:

1. Chic No-Carve Pumpkins via Brit+Co.
Aren't these just too pretty?! I'm intrigued by both versions, especially the black and white one would be gorgeous for pumpkins that don't look as good anymore.


2. Ghost Milkshakes via A Beautiful Mess
I love the idea of using chocolate to decorate jars from the inside. I've used this method for my Oreo milkshakes here.


3. Halloween Paper Bags via Titatoni
Trick or Treat, anyone? Even if in your country there won't be any kids knocking at your door, this would be a nice gift for Halloween party guests.


4. Halloween Cookies via Julias Backstube
Since I have been together with my boyfriend, we had this urge to bake cookies around Halloween every single year (and we've been together for almost 5 years now!). I don't know why we always start thinking about our Christmas cookies in October but we always had the problem that we don't have any cookie cutters for Halloween and we didn't already want to start with stars and Christmas tree shapes. That's why this year I finally ordered Halloween cookie cutters (a pumpkin, a cat and a bat) and as soon as I get them, I will try to make the cookies below as they look just too cute!


5. Swan Dress Costume via A Beautiful Mess
While Halloween costumes aren't a big matter where I live, I know that they play a huge role at US Halloween parties. If you dare to sew a costume yourself then I'm sure you will impress everybody with this swan dress!


6. LED Headbands via Brit+Co.
What's better than LEDs at a cool party? Halloween LED headbands of course! I want the cat ears, please.


7. Halloween Printables via A Beautiful Mess
Make your Halloween party even more unique with these free printables for bottles and cupcakes!


What are your plans for Halloween? Do you know any other spooky DIY tutorials?
