So I’ve been spelunkering around the web for Halloween ideas, I bet alot of us are doing that right about now. I’d planned on gathering a whirlwind post of last minute DIY ideas from various sources. But in the end, it all came back to Martha Stewart. I may kind of love to hate her, but One has to give her props for Halloween. It’s always top-notch. So, here’s my shorthand guide to the top DIY Halloweeen picks from her unfathomably deep and full website. Believe me, there’s tons more over in Martha Stewart’s Halloween.
Inspiration from top to bottom, left to right:
- Mademoiselle Butterfly, beautiful felt wings feel so much more substantial than all the tulle variations.
- Fanged Pumpkins - THESE are going on my table. Heck, they should have been on it last week so we could enjoy them. I found a pack of 20 plastic fangs at Walgreens too!
- Bubble Wrap Jellyfish – What an innovative use of an umbrella!
- Umbrella Bat Costume - So simple. Your broken umbrella, and a black hoodie. Brilliant. (via Evil Mad Scientists, but based on the Martha version)
- Spider Princess - Seems like last year’s black holiday dress and some black yarn are the only tings you’d need.
- Family Costumes, Flower Bouquet – Probably best for the girls in your world, unless you focus on Venus Fly Traps? Just a guess!
- Zombie Pumpkins - such a simple idea, I can hardly stand it. Get thee to an eyeball shop!
- Paper wigs - These could go so many directions for so many costumes, and the arty side of me just wants to make one to see how the heck it would work (and look!).
- Hair-Rasing costumes, Earth - There are 6 hair costumes to choose from – I also love the wind and the ice looks! They’re great ideas for colder climates like ours, where the full costume may be hidden by winter coats.
