Pretty and Poisonous Halloween Decorations – A few simple decorating ideas. I particularly like the lace-stamped candles.

Steampunkin – Tutorial for making a fantastic-looking steampunk Jack-o’-lantern.

Halloween Bell Jar – Attractive DIY decoration with lots of room for improvisation.

Shakespeare v Lovecraft – “Histrionic Heroes vs. Tentacled Terrors!!! Endless Soliloquys vs. Unnatural Silences!!! Romeo vs. Mi-Go!!! England’s Royal Beasts vs. A Shoggoth!!! The Author vs. Iambic Pentameter!!!” (Hat tip to Sisifo)

Haunted Birdhouse Village – Suggestion for turning dollar-store birdhouses into decorations. The ones in the demo are sort of plain, but there are lots of ways they could be spooked up further.

Snickerdoodle Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches – I could eat several dozen of these.

Hellraiser Nail Art – Not a terribly practical manicure, but certainly an arresting one. Also check out the same artist’s polymer clay Facehugger nail accessory and amazing Audrey II manicure.

Skull Candle Holders – DIY “glam goth” candleholders.

Alice in Steampunkland – This “inspiration board” was intended for a wedding, but there are some great ideas for any kind of party.

Knife Cake Decorations – Cute little edible daggers with which to stab cupcakes.
