Halloween Decoration Ideas

Holy cow, Halloween is almost here and I’m behind the eight ball! My kids have been pointing out some of the homes in the neighborhood that have already decorated for the spooky holiday and asking when we will decorate our own home. This weekend I tell them knowing that I’ll have to keep my promise.

So to get me and many of you inspired and motivated for Halloween decorating, I’ve pulled several of my most popular images from my Halloween Pinterest board to share.

DIY Valentine’s Day Decor Ideas

Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? It’s okay, you don’t have to be shy about it. I do too. Valentine’s Day decor, unlike Christmas or even Halloween, is more subtle. It’s simple, and not overdone. It also doesn’t have to be expensive. For example, how cute are these DIY conversation heart pinatas made by DIY Studio?!

Handmade Christmas Gifts for Kids to Make

DIY snow globe with vintage feel

While I was getting crafty and decorating glass globe ornaments, one of my little ones asked if she could help. Because the glass ornaments were too fragile (one had already broke – should have picked up the plastic globe ornaments in retrospect!) and I sadly declined her offer. It made me think of holiday crafts that would be great for the little ones and would make fabulous gifts as well. I’m sharing five of my fave handmade Christmas gifts for kids  at Wayfair!
