DIY Halloween Crafts That Are So Easy









Haunted Halloween Birdhouses ~ This spooky Halloween town has gone to the birds. Round up an array of wooden birdhouses and coat them with glossy black and matte gray spray paint to re-create this Halloween craft. We positioned our haunted town on a vibrant orange bench and completed the scene with miniature pumpkins and plastic spiders.




Floating Front Porch Ghosts ~ Your guests/neighbors/trick-or-treaters will be blown away by these bobbing Halloween decorations. Give your front porch a spooky effect by inviting over a few floating ghosts to hang around. If you don't have spirits on speed dial, you can re-create our Halloween ghost craft in three steps. Simply draw black eyes on a white balloon, apply a thin coat of decoupage to the top of the balloon, then cover with cheesecloth. Cut the bottom of the cheesecloth into strips for an uneven edge that will wave in the wind on Halloween night.

Express your personality by outfitting an outbuilding or porch wall with meaningful signage. On this structure, vintage advertising signs, outdated license plates, and road signs combine to fashion a fetching exhibit that reflects the homeowners' travels and interests.

Painted metal lawn chairs (just like Grandma and Granddad's outdoor seating) remain sentimental favorites that blast us back to gentler times. Find original vintage versions at sales, antiques shops, and Internet auction sites; reproduction options are seasonally available at home centers and discount stores. Complete the retro look with an antique iron table and a freestanding umbrella.

Open Your Mouth and Expect It To Be Filled

“...Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it...” Psalm 81:10

Do you have your mouth open wide today? In other words, are you expecting God to fill you and increase you beyond measure? Are you ready for Him to satisfy your needs and desires with good things?

Think about a baby bird. When they are ready to eat, they open their mouths wide. They trust that they will be fed. They expect it. They look for it. They are ready for it. It should be the same way with us. We need to keep our spiritual mouths open by expecting the goodness of God to satisfy us.

Negative thinking is like closing your mouth. A closed mouth can’t be filled. But Jesus is saying today, “Why don’t you take the limits off?” Why don’t you trust and believe for supernatural opportunities? That little bird waiting for food isn’t concerned about where the mother is going to get it from. It isn’t concerned about how she’s going to dig it up. No, that bird just opens its mouth, trusting and waiting. Why don’t you do the same …
