I know Halloween is tomorrow, but I figured a few more interesting DIYs might not go amiss. I hope you’re getting all spookied up and if not I hope these will help! Happy almost Halloween?

Halloween Mood Board

The spookiness is building. I’ve decorated my work office and started putting together a work appropriate Halloween inspired ensemble, but it isn’t enough. I’ve been trying to distract myself by expanding my Halloween board on Pinterest.

I don’t think I’ll be doing a smoking pumpkin this year, but it is definitely something I’d like to try at some point, at least for the photos. I am probably going to make some holiday inspired treats. Maybe some cobweb cupcakes… witches finger cookies… white chocolate mummies… who knows, there are A LOT of tutorials out there. This plaster cast centerpiece is really incredible; gotta love Martha Stewart, right? I wonder how many tries it would take for me to get it right… probably should buy a few extra molding kits, right?And of course these precious macaroons, I can’t even imagine the delicate touch you’d need to pipe those teeny, tiny details. Oh well, back to it, things to see, stuff to pin!

Halloween Wish List

“Boys and girls of every age, wouldn’t you like to see something strange. Come with us and you will see, this our town of Halloween…”

I seem to have caught the Halloween bug this year. In years past I haven’t had much of an interest, but this year, this year things are different. As the Halloween decor has started trickling into the stores, I’ve found myself looking a little longer and pausing as I walk past. I have it in my mind to purchase a few things for my office cube, and here are some of the things I think would look great.
