Toilet Paper Tube Pumpkins
My children are always saving and decorating toilet paper rolls. Instead of turning the toilet paper roll into a person or a building, now they’ve discovered that they can cut the pieces into strips for a totally new and festive look. Check out the step by step directions here.
Mummy Mason Jar by Views from a Stepstool
You can use mason jars for pretty much everything. When you’re done canning vegetables and creating cute salads, you can re-use your mason jar to make an adorable Halloween craft. For a cute table decoration, follow these simple directions to make a mummy mason jar.
Palm Print Pumpkins & Handprint Moons
Are you looking for an activity you can do with a toddler? Try using your little one’s palm prints to make a pumpkin. Not only is this a fun, seasonal activity, but it is also a sweet way to remember how tiny your child was. Remember to add the year on the back!

Weathered Plastic Pumpkin Totem Pole
Year after year, old trick or treat pumpkin buckets linger in my house. With many of them, the handle is broken, or my kids just want a new one for Halloween. Rather than wasting the old pumpkin buckets, you can turn them into a totem pole for your doorstep. Read about how to do this DIY activity here.
