DIY Typography Pumpkins

I did a guest post on Design*Sponge on how to make typography pumpkins (I think technically it’s some sort of squash but for all intents and purposes I’m calling it a grey pumpkin.)  See the full DIY here!

Monster Party

My friend Eunice Moyle of the fabulous letterpress stationery company Hello Lucky showed me a picture of the ticket booth she made for a Monster Halloween Party. My first thought was “What a great theme for a party” and then I asked her to let me take pictures to share. She made the whole thing from cardboard and tempera paints, it is seriously genius! It’s just a reminder that the the best things are usually made from creativity and not expensive materials.

Mini Mummies DIY

Here’s a fun DIY that my friend Tonia came up with. It’s super easy decoration for Halloween. All you need are those wooden art mannequins from IKEA and gauze. We also used our hand model to create a creepy hand (it looks real!) Set them up on your entry way table or along the snack table at you Halloween party!
