Skeleton Crafts & Recipes

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 first roundup for Crafty October 2018 – skeleton crafts and 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 skeleton crafts and recipes open in a new window so that you don’t lose your place in the list.
