Welcome to my 5th annual Crafty October series!
Every year I say I’m going to be super organised and get things done in advance, and this year has been another year that I’ve failed at that… I should have been on the ball a bit more as we’ve only just returned from a month long Disney holiday, and I’m suffering with jet lag and post holiday blues, so I’ve got some catching up to do if I want to get a Halloween idea out each day for the month!
I aim to get all of the days completed, as I hate leaving things unfinished, but on a practical level, I’m not sure if this year I can pull it out of the bag… but I’ll do my best.
I call it Crafty October, but I don’t just share Halloween (+ Autumn) crafts, there are also printables, ideas, recipes and more. You can check out Crafty October from 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012 if you can’t wait for this year’s ideas! This years ideas will eventually be shown below in the gallery!
I started The Purple Pumpkin Blog just after Halloween in 2011 and my first posts were about my love for it as well as the ‘Better Late than Never‘ dinner party I threw. I’ve got a dedicated section for Halloween Recipes and Halloween Crafts.
