Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This happens to me every year, I get so busy in my day-to-day life that I totally miss the rapid approach of Halloween. I always think to myself “I have plenty of time to figure things out!” Then it’s the night before and I don’t have any decorations or costume ideas.

Here are some spooky projects that you can make this week before scare-night.

Although this project may take slightly longer than a night, it would be a great costume to dress your loom in. Whether you finish it in time or not, the subtle skull motif is a great way to set the mood. Change the width or the length of the pattern to suit your needs.

By making simple size alterations, you could make anything from a small scarf to a big blanket.By warping up a few yards on your Cricket or Flip loom, you can make a few of these cute little ghosts for your outdoor or indoor decor! These are super simple to make–an easy way for your house to feel more haunted in no time!

Make this with reflective yarn for a night-time trick!

Another quick and scalable project is the Zoom Loom Pumpkin! Make them for cute fall decorations or make one for each table setting as a small hosting gift.

This can be made in a variety of colors and sizes to add some interest to your decor scheme.

What kind of projects can you think of that would be quick to make? Let us know in the comments below!
