A DIY Halloween

One of my best friends, Christy, is obsessed with Halloween.  Don't get me wrong, I'm on board with any holiday that involves free candy.... but I just don't believe in going out and spending hundreds of dollars in order to decorate for Halloween.  I know I'm not alone either, because you are seeing more and more DIY decorations this year.  Here are some of my favorite spooky (and luxe!) decorations that you can make yourself!

Aren't these little DIY decorations too cute?  I love how creative, cost-effective, and easy they are to make!  The craft supplies are easy enough to find, and if you're a die-hard DIY-er you probably already have most of them :)  If anyone else has any DIY Halloween decoration projects that they've come up with, please share!
