DIY Halloween Accessories For Your Home | HOLIDAYS / DIY / CRAFT

Halloween is closely sneaking up...We're ready...are you?

If you're ahead of the game and already have your costume laying out and ready to go, why not take the next couple days to add some DIY Halloween-themed details to your domestic surroundings. While it's probably too late to order anything online, we've found some simple DIY projects that can really up your holiday game...And who isn't down for some spooktacular recession-friendly DIY fun?

Psycho-style shower curtain & bath mat:

DIY it:
Purchase a cheap shower curtain...The dollar store may be your most frugally conscious bet. While you're there, check out the kid's craft aisle for paint (finger paint will work wonders). ThinkGeek has both the curtain and the mat priced individually at $19.99 each. With a trip to the dollar store, at best, you'll have a fun Halloween curtain replacement for $2 (plus tax)...add in a cheap bath mat for added effect. And at that price, you can ball em up and throw em out without feeling like you wasted your hard-earned bucks.

Martha Stewart has a HUGE collection of inexpensive DIY Halloween craft tips via Halloween Central on MarthaStewart.com. A sample:

Creepy Candles
Cast a sinister glow over any setting with a cluster of white tapers dripping with "blood" (actually red candle wax). Fill a cup or a small pail with sand, and plant white candles inside so they stand upright. Light a red candle and tip it over the white candles so the wax drips down the tops and sides, being careful not to burn yourself. Let wax cool completely before removing candles from sand.

Another Martha Stewart craft project, Specimen-Jar Candles caught our eye too! And while a whole candle making project might be a little bit too complex for the last minute, on-the-go crafter, we're thinking the vegetables-in-jars concept is unbelievably brilliant, yielding astonishing results! Who knew cauliflower was so....brain-like? And if you're feeling like pulling off the whole project, check it:
Here's a Good Thing that will add a spooky touch to your home for Halloween. The specimen-jar candle looks like it came straight from a mad scientist's laboratory, but it's really easy to make -- and little trick-or-treaters will love it.

Tools and Materials:
Cauliflower head, Grapes (optional), Celery root (optional), Glass vase, Small suction cup, Water, Food coloring, Wax granules, Wicks, Lighter

Specimen-Jar Candle How-To
1. Attach a cauliflower head to the metal part of a small suction cup, and secure it to the inside of a glass vase. You can also experiment with other fruits and vegetables instead of cauliflower, such as grapes or celery root.
2. Fill jar with water (water should cover top of cauliflower head).
3. Dye water with one or two drops of food coloring.
4. Pour wax granules on top of water and lace wicks in granules. A 1-inch layer of granules burns for about 1 hour.
5. Light candles.

Resource
You can purchase wax granules at clcs.com.

And of course, if you're really ready to impress at that Halloween party, bake a batch of our famous 'Ladies Fingers'.

People will be talking about them for years! Check out the recipe at Zandland: VERY festive Halloween Cookies.
