If you’re like us, you’ve probably answered with a resounding, “No!” Have no fear though. The agents and staff here at The Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group have you covered. We’ve compiled a list of helpful last-minute Halloween decorating and costume ideas, along with a Spotify playlist of our favorite Halloween songs to help you along.
Halloween just isn’t Halloween without a jack-o-lantern! We understand not everyone is that artistic though. For some quick inspiration, visit the folks over at Vivint Smart Home Solutions and download one of their templates. Super easy and guaranteed to appease the little ghouls in your life!
Looking for something a little more elegant? Pop on over to The Garden Glove and check out their tutorial on carving pumpkins with a drill! For an added touch, paint the pumpkin white or match it to your decor.
Pro Tip: Cut the hole for the light source on the BOTTOM of your pumpkin instead of around the stem. Then place your light source on a level surface and slip the pumpkin over it. No need to try to balance a light source on the uneven bottom of the pumpkin and no need to try to fit the top back on the pumpkin just right!
No time for shopping? Forgot about that costume party at school and need something quick and easy? Check out this article from Brit+Co for some easy DIY kids costumes. We’re in love with this adorable scarecrow for your little man!
Your little princess not having the scarecrow costume? Quicken Loans’ article ‘10 of the Cutest DIY Halloween Costumes‘ includes this adorable Audrey Hepburn-inspired movie star costume.
Pro Tip: If your costume is make-up heavy and needs to last a while, invest in a good barrier spray for under your make up (like this one from Mehron) and a translucent setting powder for over the make up (like this one from Ben Nye).
