Holiday Arts and Crafts Ideas: Halloween

For lovers of arts and crafts, there’s nothing quite like the holidays. Unlike the rest of the year – January through September – during the holiday season (October, November and December), cute, innovative, and offbeat decor is highly desired in homes across America.  

In turn, this focus on the “unusual” gives us art lovers a platform to show off our work.

In this blog series we’re going to dive into each major holiday – Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas – and look at a few examples of amazing and innovative decor celebrating each.

Today we start with Halloween!


With so many silly and fun symbols (pumpkins, witches, ghosts, etc), Halloween is a great holiday to work with. Here are a few examples of Halloween decor pieces we absolutely love.
