Fun Halloween Bathroom Decor
Make your family members and houseguests giggle in the bathroom with these Halloween inspired mummies and ghost. Empty toilet paper roll mummies lead them to think they're out of luck, but a ghost is there to tell them they can "Poo!"
Paper Kids' Crown
This is an inexpensive and easy way to make a custom kid's crown with a paper plate. It is ideal for playing dress up at home, as a party hat, or to complete a Halloween costume! This concept would be fun for a kids' party for them to decorate their own hats, too!
Tin Can Lanterns
Put your old tin cans to use is by turning them into lanterns. Simply punch holes into them, then place candles or LED lights inside. If your tin cans are on the thin side, before starting, fill the cans with water then freeze overnight. This will keep the cans from bending when you're punching holes into them.
Green Apple Monsters
Aren't these little monsters adorable? They're mostly fruit, so you won't feel too bad munching on them. Play around with their teeth and eye spacing to give them each some character. After slicing the apples, this would be a great edible craft for kids. Have fun!

Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume
I've seen a lot of creepy, gory costumes using a zipper and special effects kits to make people look like they have zombies underneath their unzipped skin. My costume this year is a take on that, but showing that under my skin, I am a girl made of gold.
