Happy All Hallows’ Eve friends! I thought it would be fun to put together a list of Halloween crafts we have made over the years and share a few last-minute shopping tips.
I was recently looking for a few Halloween projects to make and, true to form, the store had already switched to its Christmas stock. The “two months ahead pre-season switch” was a difficult adjustment to make when I first started blogging. Craft and hobby stores start carrying fall around July, which is our hottest month here in Las Vegas. Needless to say, fall was the last thing on my mind.
It’s not even November but all of the Halloween craft supplies are gone? How are we to make? I’ll let you in on a blogger secret: We stockpile holiday supplies so we can craft with the season, like tassel ghosts in October. Some bloggers even start crafting for the holidays in July, which is when you will want to start picking up your fall materials.
If you are having trouble sourcing supplies and looking for Halloween crafts in October like a normal human, I recommend Oriental Trading Company and Amazon as these retailers have seasonal supplies year-round. My brick and mortar recommendation is Joann; they seem to carry the most craft-worthy supplies, rather than exclusively decor. They also tend to keep products on the shelves longer.
Okay, now that we have the supplies covered, let’s get to making!
