Happy October everyone! We have shaped this month’s line-up around easy crafts, activities and recipes. We’re all about cutting the Halloween corners so we can better enjoy all this season has to offer! First up, quick decor to make your house feel a little bit more festive.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Maypole felt balls in black and green, String, paper, and scissors. That’s it! For the flying bat garland, string the row of black felt balls and then simply cut out a proportionate rectangle out of the black cardstock. Then take your scissors and cut out the wave pattern for the winged look and hot glue the paper on!

For the witch hat garland, this will change depending on what you want to use it for. If it will be seen 3D, you can cut out a circle for the witch’s hat’s brim, and glue it to the top of the felt balls. Or, if it will be laying flat against a wall, this will make it look a little funky, so you can ditch the brim as we’ve done below, or cut out a half circle for the brim, leaving the back open to lay flat against whatever surface it is up against. We ditched the brim so that it would look great no matter if it was moved from wall to doorway. For the witch’s pointy hat, picture your card stock like a clock. You’ll want the shape to be as if the clock’s hands pointed to 9 and 4 o’clock. So a little less than a half circle, a little more than a quarter.

  1. As a lifestyle blog your bread and butter is overdoing the holidays. I wouldn’t start out October by saying, eh who cares about Halloween. It makes those of us who are excited to decorate feel looked down on. Just a thought.

    1. definitely not our intention. just wanted to make the readers who feel overwhelmed by decorating feel like they can enjoy it too.

      thanks for your input.
