Halloween is this week and oh the fun to be had!  If you scroll through Pinterest or visit any of the home or Halloween stores, you are sure to find so many creative ideas for this spirited day.  Today I’m sharing some of my current favorite Halloween ideas with you!

Decorating the Pumpkin

There are countless ways to decorate pumpkins these days beyond carving traditional jack-o-lanterns, and I just love the idea of decorating pumpkins using tulle, festive ribbon, markers, paint and glitter.  You could do this with your natural pumpkins or even faux pumpkins (find at your local hobby and craft stores) to reuse year after year.

Creative Halloween Treats

There are many Halloween treat possibilities for school and family parties, but I loved these adorable (& healthy) ideas from Crafty Morning below… and a favorite in our family are Ghost Sucker Treats…My daughter shares a tutorial on how your kiddos can make these, on our other Blog, Kai Kai Brai.

Decorate the Front Door

I really like the idea of decorating the front door for Halloween night to give trick or treaters something fun and festive to greet them as they visit door-to-door.  It really isn’t a ton of work to do, and would be a fun idea if you live in a subdivision or close-knit community to coordinate a neighborhood “front-door Halloween decorating contest.”

Treat Bowl Tradition

I like to add a bit of tradition to the holidays and Halloween is no different… a fun idea is to use the same festive treat bowl to greet your visitors each year …little touches like these become memorable and can be passed down through the generations.  I also love the idea of painting your own Halloween treat bowl at a pottery studio too…how special and festive that would be to use every year.

Dressing Up without “dressing up”

Anyone else like to dress-up Halloween festive for your kiddos’ school parties and trick or treat night, without having to go in a full-on costume?.. There are so many cute ways to dress up your fashion to look spirited and stylish that day… here’s some cute items I found, all on Amazon Prime.

Family-Themed Costumes

I absolutley love family costumes but have found there’s a small window of time when our kiddos really want to participate in a family-themed costume (it’s just not cool as they get older ;)… here’s a couple gems from my family’s Halloweens’ past when we went as a “Frightful Family (+ an Elsa”…the little one has a mind of her own..) and “Zombie Football”.

Oh…I could go on and on with Halloween ideas!  I hope you grabbed a few new ones from my post and I’m sharing even more on my Pinterest Halloween Board…follow me there!
