Halloween Inspiration

4 years ago

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a whole holiday around dressing up and of course CANDY!!! So in honor of a truly great holiday I thought I’d share some Halloween inspired DIY projects to start the festivities for this month with some spooky fun.

Halloween Inspiration 2015 by Trinkets in Bloom

Around our house we’ve been talking and planning our costumes for more than a month already. With respect to my husband I hold off on any Halloween decorating until we’re actually in October. But after that it’s every ghoul for himself!

While this roundup is mostly about costume DIYs I’ve also thrown in some good spirited posts from the past (and I do mean the past, there’s a couple moldy oldies in here even one from my pre DIY days on the blog).

For me Halloween is so much more than just one day. The whole month of October is pretty awesome. The weather is getting cooler, the days are shorter, there’s pumpkin spice everything everywhere! (I have to admit I don’t really go crazy for all the pumpkin spiced everything (anymore ;) ) but, I’m totally obsessed with the pumpkin pop tarts from Trader Joe’s! Total guilty pleasure! Don’t judge.) Did I mention “sweater weather”? LOL I think the one thing I really love is when people start putting up lights. In our neighborhood people really go crazy for Halloween, decorating their houses, putting up lights, the whole nine yards. It just seems to transform our mundane world into a wonderland that lasts through to the Christmas decorations and the end of the year. Maybe it’s just nostalgia from my childhood but I just LOVE it!

This month I’ll be sharing some fun NEW Halloween costume DIYS and inspiration to help you get spooky and have fun! In the meantime here are some projects to get you started.

DAY OF THE DEAD MAKEUP

7 years ago

Today my friend Paula, one of the Drop Dead Gorgeous artists, is guest posting and showing us some of her designs and techniques for Day of the Dead Makeup, also known as Sugar Skull or Dia de los Muertos Makeup.

Day of the Dead Makeup Feature

Face Painting for Dia de los Muertos is not only to remember the dead, but to overcome the fear of death and to celebrate life!
