Spend this October working that devilish imagination of yours. Alexa is just days away from unearthing 24 Halloween craft tutorials in 24 hours. That should keep you busy until the Big Day. Alexa says they will be “quick and easy and very accessible projects. I’ll be covering everything from jewelry to decor ideas to fun food crafts to costumes! And all of the projects I make are something you can achieve in an evening, so it doesn’t mean you have to spend hours of labor slaving away on your crafts!”
Reader Debbie also let us know about her 2 newest craft tutorial projects: Crow Canister & Tray, and Vintage Look Halloween Decoupaged Decor. Bust out the glue and be sure to share the photos when you’re done.

I’ll bet your potion cupboard could use a little added mystery. Whose doesn’t? Download these magical and menacing potion labels from Love Manor and have your glue stick at the ready.

They all have a gorgeously designed, decaying vintage look.
For a next to free alternative, some Dollar Tree stores have a ghastly collection of potion labels, too.
