Halloween comes but once a year, but it’s lasts the whole month on the Purple Pumpkin Blog with my annual series – Crafty October!

Back in 2012 when I first started this series, I shared a Halloween craft every day in October – which is where the name Crafty October came from. Over the years the series has evolved into more than crafts, with me sharing recipes, free printables, pumpkin carving templates, party ideas and more! I do sometimes sneak in some Autumn themed stuff too!

I do have some new stuff to share this year – yay! – but will also be sharing lots of roundups of ideas as well. I wish I could do it all, but these days, I just can’t… but my vision for this blog is to think up the ideas so that you don’t have to!

To that end, here is the next roundup for Crafty October 2018 – Ghost Crafts & Recipes! You can see all of Crafty October 2018’s posts here.

As with all of my roundups, there are ideas from my blog as well as from lots of fab blogs from around the world. I have made all of links to these 25+ Spooky Fun Ghost Crafts & Recipes open in a new window so that you don’t lose your place in the list.

  1. This DIY Tin Can Ghost WindSock from Chicken Scratch NY is a great way to recycle old tin cans.
  2. These Origami Ghosts from Red Ted Art are super cute! String them together to make a garland of ghosties!
