Yarn Wrapped Monster Canisters
These creepy creature canisters from our very own Jennifer Perkins are a delightful project to get the kids excited for Halloween.

Halloween Drip Pots
Jen created these easy Halloween Drip Pots as transitional mantelpiece décor. The orange pot blends well with black and white for Halloween, but Jen says you can experiment with different colors or even add in a couple of witch legs, like the ones found here .
Spooky Paper Lanterns
Lia Griffith’s Paper Lanterns are a fantastic way to guide trick-or-treaters through your front yard.
