How to celebrate Halloween in spooky fashion and style.


During this festive time of October, decorations can get expensive in preparation for Halloween at the end of the month. Not everyone has the time or budget to spend money on props that are often set aside in November. We’ve put together a list of Halloween decorations that are easy to make to help you prepare for the scariest day of the year.

You’ll love these fun and affordable ideas that will make your humble abode the envy of all ghouls and ghosts out there. Boo!

These lollipop ghosts are crafty and simple to make. All you need are tissue papers, orange and black ribbons, lollipops (or tootsie pops) and a black sharpie.

The truth is out there and can be found in these extra-terrestial balloons. Toss a glow stick into a white balloon, inflate the balloon and seal it with a knot. Use a black sharpie to draw the face and you’re ready for a close encounter!
