It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Where the air is crisp, the sweaters are cozy and pumpkins are the main attraction in every recipe. If you’re looking to get crafty this Halloween season you came to the right place. Here are a few of our favorite DIY projects for Halloween. 

  1. Canning Ring Pumpkin

This year, you can take the mason jar trend a little further and put together this nifty DIY. All you need is some mason jar rings, rope, a twig and little paint. You can find the step-by-step guide, courtesy of Lolly Jane, here

  1. Wheelbarrow of Bones

This is probably one of the easier DIY’s you’ll tackle and still just cool as the others. Grab your old wheelbarrow, some soil and toss a skeleton into the mix. If you’re really feeling crafty you can also throw in some fake ravens and crows.
