Let’s be real: Most of this weekend is going to be spent slaying every contest with Queen Bey costumes, sipping BOOzy cocktails and nomming these galaxy donut holes. But since Halloween is one of the best times to go DIY crazy, take advantage of any downtime between parties to try one of these fun and festive projects. Whether you need some last-minute Halloween party decor or you’re hunting down some chic new accessories for your closet, here are 10 weekend projects to make before Monday’s return.


1. DIY Spooky Halloween Coloring Pages: Whether you’re looking to add a little extra pizzazz to your decor or you just want to kill some in-between time while handing out candy to kiddos, these free printables will have you channeling all your best artsy spirits. Hang it up when you’re done to show off your decor. (via Brit + Co)


2. DIY Printable Halloween Votive Wraps: If you’re hosting a party this weekend and you need some extra mood lighting, these votive wraps are easy as pie to make. The best part is that you can just peel them off when the party is over and use your glass votives for everyday decorating. (via Make and Tell)

7. DIY Spider Web Tablecloth: This DIY spiderweb tablecloth or backdrop makes a perfect addition to every Halloween party. Use it as a tablecloth, or hang it up on the wall for a quick and easy photo backdrop. (via The House That Lars Built)


8. DIY Peplum Tee: Before you retire those crop tops, try this super fun hack that turns your summer tees into a trendy peplum top. All you need is a sewing machine and a little bit of extra fabric to transition your tee from summer-to-fall fashion. (via Brit + Co)


9. DIY Sleeping Masks: Got any trips planned for the holidays? Then you need these glam eye masks in your life ASAP. These beauties are so much fun to make you might find yourself making one for your entire #squad. Cut eye holes for a fun mask, or sew in extra padding for a more luxe napping experience.

10. DIY Canvas Clipboards: Clipboards are a brilliant — and affordable! — way to decorate a home office or living room. Create an oversized gallery of your favorite images using huge canvases as the board: The best part about a clipboard is that, unlike a normal gallery wall, you can switch out the image whenever you want.
