Halloween Decor – DIY Style

Do you have your Halloween decor out yet? My whole family thinks Halloween decor is so much fun and it is also exciting because it is like the kick-off to the holiday season! Let the family celebrations, decorating, yummy food, and shopping begin! Right?

FabulesslyFrugal Halloween Crafts and Homemade Decorations

We like to try to add one new Halloween decoration item to our collection each year. It can be store-bought or homemade. Whatever works! If I go the DIY route, I can usually manage to get more than just one new item if I really want to. 😉 And if you get the whole family involved in making them or picking out the stuff, they will become the most favorite and cherished decorations and crafts of all.
