With Halloween around the corner, I thought it would be fun to bring some of my favorite easy Halloween projects out of the vault to share with you. Halloween is something our family looks forward to every year, and my list includes free printables, fun family traditions, decor, and more!  I have a list of even more Halloween ideas and projects I’ll be posting over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned for those too!

1.  Halloween Chalkboard Printable

This is such a fun addition to my mantel!  It’s a newer project (last year), but it’s going to be a keeper.  :)  It’s easy, too–just get it printed as an 8×10 or 11×20, and you’re ready to put it up!

 2.  You’ve Been Boo’ed!  FREE Printables! 

Boo’ing our friends and neighbors is a family tradition…we all love it! I get such a kick out of watching my kids huddle around and make a plan as to how they are going to avoid detection.  These free printables make it super easy!

 4.  Haunted Gingerbread Houses

 This year will be our eighth Annual Haunted Gingerbread House Party!  My kids have basically been doing this their whole lives, and it’s a family tradition we simply can’t leave out of the Halloween season.  It is SO fun!  Whether you invite friends over to join you, or do it as a family, making these haunted gingerbread houses are fun for everyone!

5. Grapevine & Ribbon Wreath

Last year I needed a new wreath, after finding my old one pretty much destroyed in the attic.  So, I pulled out a few things I had on hand and made this fun wreath, and I love it!

6.  4×4 Post Halloween Luminaries

I love to line my walk with lights on Halloween night, and these are perfect! They’re also wonderful to line your tablescape, as centerpieces, on a mantel or shelf, or anywhere!  Use them inside or outside with battery operated lights!

7.  Peanut Butter Cracker Spiders

I took these to my boys’ preschool last year for the snack, and they were all SO excited about them!  They’re fun for school or home!  If you have peanut allergy concerns, you can use cream cheese instead.
