No Halloween is complete without a set of Festive Skulls. I created this skull squad for my co-workers as a fun treat. These are so fast and easy to make using Dollar Store skulls, sequins, Hygloss foil paper and Beacon Adhesives Mixed Media Glue.

We are in love with this next project; Steampunk Pumpkin. Gilded gold, bronze, brown and black tones make this pumpkin pop by Beacon Maker Natalie, Fern and Maple. Those goggles and vintage style hardware really make this ordinary pumpkin come alive and begin to tell a story. Natalie glued all the elements to this pumpkin using Beacon Adhesives 527 Glue.

Next up is another great Last Minute Halloween Craft Idea from Natalie, Fern and Maple. DIY Halloween Terrarium that Natalie created using Beacon Adhesives Gem Tac and 527 Glues, jewelry chain, small jewelry terrarium pendant, along with other eerie chic supplies. The perfect accessory for your costume or Halloween attire. Its so gothic, you could wear it all year long.

Up next is a Spooky Pumpkin Primitive Wall Art Piece that I created using left over wood scraps, Beacon Adhesives Makers Mix DIY Concrete, Druzy Paste (Coming Soon) and Power Tac.

The Spooky fun hasn’t stopped yet. Here is a super cute set of Fun Felt Treat Holders created by Beacon Maker DonnaDonna J. Designs using Kunin Felt and Beacon Adhesives Felt Glue. These are the perfect last minute treat bags for your favorite Trick or Treaters. Best part is they are fast and easy to make all you need is some felt and felt glue.

Finally we are closing out Halloween with this super stylish set of Concrete Druzy Pumpkins that I created using Beacon Adhesives DIY Makers Mix Concrete and our soon to be released Druzy Paste. this stuff is just too much fun to play with. To make one of these yourself just grab some Makers Mix, measure, mix, and pour into a jack O’ Lantern silicone mold, let set for at least an hour or so. Then remove the concrete pumpkins and paint. You could use glitter in place of the druzy paste for now.
