With Halloween right around the corner and a 10-year-old girl, my house is already filled with reminders that the spookiest night of the year is in exactly 25 days. We always have some neighbors and friends over for some fun before we head out for trick-or-treating downtown and, of course, we always have a theme. This year we’re upping our game and creating some seriously stylish DIYs to scatter about our home based on some of our favorite Halloween characters, themes and the patterns they incorporate. Since my daughter and I are big readers, we decided it would be fun to pile up some thrifted scary books for haunted library vibe. We’ll be gifting everyone a book and, as much as I love candy, a good nail-biter of a book — complete with a creepy DIY bookmark — is way better.
These three DIYs are simple, fun and kid-friendly so grab some paint, brushes, ribbon and your favorite seasonal fabric from the Waverly Inspirations collection and let’s get started. Click through to see our mood boards and DIY instructions. P.S. The Waverly Inspirations damask screen prints are so “haunted library!” –Caitlin
