halloween DIY decorations

by @according2kelly on October 18, 2011

inspired by the super-crafty-thrift-store-genius-totally-fabulous carrie & her love affair with our local savers thrift store – i decided it was high time for me to make some halloween DIY decorations of my own…

a quick trip to my local orange county savers thrift store & less than $20 later, i had everything i needed for my own halloween DIY decorations: zany barbie zombies, a bubbling witches brew, creepy creatures, & spooky silhouettes.

a couple of barbies, a plastic cauldron, some ceramic knick knacks, a few frames, some spray paint & little foam insulation is all i needed to create my halloween DIY decorations.

want to make your own? savers has tons of decorating ideas & super-handy-downloadable-pdfs with all the instructions & how-to’s:

* zany barbie zombie instructions
* bubbling witches brew instructions
* creep creatures instructions
* spooky halloween silhouettes (i used picnik to create my silhouette images, although you can download the images i created here.)

hope your holiday is spook-tacular!


Halloween is my favorite holiday to decorate for. Not sure what that says about me, but there it is. I LOVE Zaney Barbie! Hilarious! And a practical application for all those Barbies upstairs my mother-in-law keeps buying my dis-interested daughter. Visiting from SITS and will definitely come back!

Love the zombie barbie! My two boys would get such a kick out of that, great idea! Happy SITS day, I love all the photos on your blog!
