DIY halloween decorations by Kailo Chic

Hello! I am so excited to be here for my first official post on the Treetopia blog! If you don’t know, my name is Kara, and I am the creative behind A Kailo Chic Life. I am so excited to share a few of my favorite trees decorated for all the holidays in the next few months. But first, let’s talk all things Halloween! While I love the traditional orange and black of Halloween decorations, the last few years I have started to incorporate more colors into my Halloween decorations. This year I went all out with all the colors but kept the theme of Halloween pumpkins, bats, ghosts, and spiders.

Let’s talk teal pumpkins. Unless you have been living under a Halloween rock, you have probably seen teal pumpkins at the store. Most stores that carry pumpkins have them.

This practice all started with the Teal Pumpkin Project by F.A.R.E. It is a great movement and something near and dear to my heart as the mom of a kid with severe food allergies. Every year not only do I have a teal pumpkin on my doorstep with plenty of safe treats I also go that extra teal pumpkin decorating mile – because of course, I do.

If you’re not sure what material you could use for a pet costume, give paper mache boxes a try. They’re easy to work with and cheap enough for you to try out ideas and experiment with costumes you may not have tried before. Best of all, it’s an extremely lightweight material—and weight is always something you have to consider when dressing your pet. Chelsea from Lovely Indeed came up with this amazing DIY on how to turn your dog into a walking cupcake for Halloween, and we think it’s brilliant and adorable.
