Welcome to Crafty October 2017 – a month of Halloween ideas! This is my annual Halloween series that I have been running through the month of October since 2012 – I can’t believe Crafty October is in its 6th year!
Crafty October 2017
If you’re a long-time reader of The Purple Pumpkin Blog, you’ll know that I love Halloween!
If you’re new here, you might have had an inkling since my blog name contains something associated with this time of year!
But whether you are a regular or newbie, I hope that you enjoy all the Halloween (and Autumn) stuff I have coming for you!
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.
It was very ambitious and most days I would make the craft and get the post up on the same day – wow I was a different blogger back then! I even did it on the day that I was a birthing partner for my sister when she had my niece!
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!
The only year I struggled was Crafty October 2016, and I didn’t share something every day.
But I’m a different person for 2017 and am so excited for this year’s series!
I also have to introduce my cute Halloween characters for 2017! They’ll be appearing in my free printables for this year – I hope you love them as much as I do!
This year’s Halloween ideas can be found below. I’ve broken the list into free printables, crafts, and other stuff.
For tons of Halloween ideas, check out Crafty October from 2023, 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012 for recipes, cocktails, crafts, and free printables for the spooky season!
