These Seven Spooky Things should keep you well spooked from July 27th to August 3rd.
Check out all of this weeks daily tasks below:
Let's still this week with a little up-cycling! As we're kick starting another spooky week with these tin can lanterns.
They're easy to make and take hardly any time at all. If you have a nail, hammer and some empty tin cans then you're pretty much all set. The tutorial does require print outs so you can hammer around your designs but if you simply draw the designs you would like onto the tin cans and then follow your own lines with the nails, you're all set.

Today's make is the opposite of yesterdays make... so instead of a quick and easy project, today we're going for something that will take a few days to make but looks a-ma-zing!!
This witch house is made entirely from cardboard and paint. The video tutorial breaks down every single step on how to make your very own house. This would look incredible as a table centrepiece or just a decoration around your house this Halloween (or leave it out all years because people need to see this!).

Today we're cooking and this one is definitely a recipe you'll want to make over and over again. Whip up a batch of this slow cooker pumpkin chilli for a nice hearty treat.
Add a few tortilla chips for scooping and this dinner is perfect for a nice cosy night in. You can also freeze this too so if why not make a big batch and enjoy throughout Autumn?

I really love this make, its quick, simple but really effective and a whole lot of fun to put together.
This One Hour Broom Parking sign is made using wood, paints and hooks. You could make this for Halloween as a decoration you bring out year after year or just a general home decoration. Personally I would hang this above the door in my kitchen.

Last Halloween one product that quite a few people went crazy for was eyeball plants. They were available in places such as Homesense and TK Maxx here in the UK and quite a few of you were on the hunt for them.
There is a chance they might be back this year.. but if not why not make your own? Now is the perfect time to make them too as so many stores have artificial flowers available for Summer decorations. This particular tutorial using plastic eyeballs that you should be able to get closer to Halloween from stores like Poundland, The Range etc or substitute these for ping-pong balls and draw the details on yourself?
You can also make the flowers without purchasing artificial flowers and use felt that you cut and wrap around the eyeballs until you have a flower. You can find out how to make these flower right here and a felt example can be found here.
I have shared countdown calendars in the past and let's be honest... you can never have too many Halloween calendars, so here is another!
This Calendar will take a little time to put together but it looks fangtastic and is actually a lot of fun to make and also use throughout October. Each day is a little hanging tag then when removed has a new activity to complete each day.
A great idea to make for the kids or even just for yourself. Why not make one with a new project for you to do each day as you countdown to the best day of the year? Start day one with decorating a room, day two baking, day three a craft project until you have a completely spooky house for October 31st.
You can find out all the details on how to make this right here.
It's the last day of the week and so to help you unwind after the end of this busy, crafty week, i'm making today movie night!
This weeks film is the brilliant Happy Death Day and if you have never seen this.... where have you been? Happy Death Day is definitely one of my favourite films of the last decade and it's a load of fun too.
The film follows Tree, a college student who ends up murdered... only when she dies, she suddenly wakes up starting the day all over again. The only way to break the loop is to find her killer and stop herself getting killed once again.
It's such a great film and although the sequel isn't as good as the first it's also a lot of fun too and definitely one to check out right after you have watched this too.
As a bonus extra each week i'll feature an instagrammer who has a spooky profile that you might like. This way you can add even more spookiness to your instagram feed each week too.
This weeks featured instagrammer is: @thedyerghoulhouse
