Halloween Craft Roundup

Can you believe Halloween is only four days away!? Where did October go? Apartment Farm is all decked out in autumn finery – I’ve got my jack-o-lantern candle holders out, spooky labels on the bottles in the bar, my wooden plaques and wreaths hung, and glittered gourds and skulls and tchotchkes about the house. Outside, our mum is flowering nicely and we’ve got a bundle of Indian corn on the back door. We’ll be adding a small carved pumpkin too once we get it done this week – we got a pint sized one to match our pint sized kid this year. I didn’t buy any gourds for the garden though since the squirrels decided they were a free buffet last year. I ought to buy some fake ones and give the nasty little rodents a run for their money… at any rate, if you haven’t decorated yet, there’s still time! And you can do it for practically free with things you already have around the house. Check out these great resourceful crafts to haunt your house this Halloween!
