I have been singing it all week, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” … Halloween of course! I love that the days get shorter, the air cooler and I get to pull out my thicker sheets.  You’re layering those summer cotton sweaters with gusto in anticipation of the cashmere; yes it’s fall and time for things to get spooky.  My husband and I have been brimming with excitement for our annual Halloween Soiree! This year, much to our excitement, we will be throwing it on the day itself.  We have been spreading cobwebs, cutting out crafts, DIY-ing while watching our favorite films of the season.

This is a fantastic craft: DIY candles.  Take this craft and run with it.  I have made stunning birthday gifts, Christmas favors, and decor for my home.  The possibilities are endless.  There is something about making them for Halloween that sends me over the edge though.  The silhouettes, the candle-lit nature of the early evening, it’s just too much fun.  So knock this craft out and bring a little spook into your home this holiday.
