These Seven Spooky Things should keep you well spooked from July 20th to July 26th.
Check out all of this weeks daily tasks below:
We're starting this week a little spooky. with this diy Ouija board decoration. This would look great as a centrepiece for your next party or just as something to hang on the wall in your haunted home.
Surprisingly it's really simple to make and also extremely cheap to put together, so you could easily get one of these made in a day.

Tuesday is all about lighting! Well more specifically, lamps and these easy to make paper lanterns look great. They have major gothic vibes and all you really need is card, paper and string.
The templates to create these are completely free and you can also find vintage style templates too. So if you're after more of an Halloween look then the black cat and moon templates are right up your street.
Check out how to make these right here and the Halloween templates here.
As of today (July 20th 2020) there are exactly 64 days left until it is officially Autumn/Fall, which is just over two months away. So for those of you who are counting down the days (like I am), why not bring a little fall into your home early?
Today i'm sharing a recipe for Gingerbread Leaf Cookies! These are a quick and easy bake too, so you can easily whip up a batch in no time. With Summer still sticking around for another 2 months, it means you have plenty of time to experiment and tweak this recipe as much as you like so you can create your own perfect leaf cookies when Autumn finally does arrive too. Personally I love adding my own twist to a recipe and I think I would add some iced details to these to really make them stand out.
Check out all of the ingredients and steps on how to make these right here.
I am absolutely obsessed with this make. It's might take you a few days to put together but the finish is worth it.
Today you can read all about how to make your own Halloween village from wooden blocks! The how to even shows you full pictures of each building so you can easily replicate them yourself. What's more is that this won't break the bank at all to make and if you already have some thick wood you're halfway there already.
I will definitely be making these before Halloween and if you would like to do the same then head right over here.
Today's little make is actually a little up-cycle project. If you have even ended up with a broken shovel then why not give it a new lease of life as a cute little plant pot ghost?
A quick lick of paint and a spooky face will change a broken shovel into a spooky addition to your plant pots. You could easily do this without waiting for a shovel to break.... stores like poundland sell cheap shovels that you can paint yourself, so don't get breaking those garden tools!

It's movie night and what better movie to sit down and watch than Elvira Mistress of the Dark!
This classic film was released in 1988 to mixed reviews and only made $5.5 million on a $7.5 million dollar budget... ouch! But with many flops, over time they develop cult status and this film has one hell of a cult following. The film is fun, camp and a little ridiculous but it's definitely worth a watch and hopefully one you'll watch over and over again.
There is also a sequel called Elvira's Haunted Hills that you can sink your teeth into too!
You've made it through another week and we're going to end it with more baking... but this time time not the edible kind but the decorative kind of baking. Today we're making this wonderful Cinnamon Salt Dough hanging leaves.
As a kid I remember making all kinds of things with salt dough as it was so easy to mix together, so i'm actually a little excited to try and make these too. What I especially love about these are the fact they're scented. As a hanging decoration alone they're great but adding that cinnamon touch really adds a nice autumnal layer to them that will make your home smell amazing.
