Every Halloween there seem to be more and more great craft projects to make your house look spooky. If you are late in getting around to decorating your house like I am, my thing worth sharing seems easy enough to make happen quickly. Yankee Magazine published instructions for making homemade haunted houses with recycled materials. They are fun, relatively low cost, and look great. Best of all kids will love to decorate and play with them.


I, for one, am glad that my people did not try to get me in a costume (yet) this year like some other bloggers have done to their cats. I think Henri, Le Chat Noir captures my feelings about Halloween for cats in his video, “L’Haunting”.


It’s so easy to take things for granted, especially when you’re a kid excited to go out and hustle for treats around your neighborhood. I’m ashamed to admit that I had never thought about what it would be like to be in a wheelchair with a desire to dress up and celebrate with those around me. This post from 101 Mobility was a real eye opener and I applaud the wonderful folks who put these DIY wheelchair costumes together.


The trick to keeping Halloween safe for canines is to help us keep our paws off toxic foods. Why not scare up a special treat just for us, like these Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits? This way, all your four-legged friends will be gobbling up a safe snack, and a howling good time will be had by all!


I love how creative some people can get for the holidays. Apartment Therapy showcases some very creative and extreme decorating for Halloween.


I knew some of the history of Halloween, like it being the night before All Saint’s Day, but I didn’t know why people carved up pumpkins and put fire inside of them. Until I saw this video from the History Channel that explained that and all sorts of other tidbits. It also has some great footage of nostalgic costumes with those uncomfortable but ridiculously cute plastic Halloween masks.
