One of the trends for Halloween 2016 is a shift toward DIY costumes, so why not DIY your Halloween décor!
Check out these 7 creative examples of why you should work with influencers this Halloween:

Creepy Skull Wreath- Kim from Made in a Day took this sponsored post for Joann Fabrics to the next level with this Enter if You Dare wreath that is slightly drool worthy. She made sure to include every item needed to create the wreath down to what section to find the foliage.
Mercury Glass Pumpkins- From Mercury glass pumpkins, like this one from Monica at Monica Wants It, to glitter trees and metallic pumpkins glitzy is the trend for Halloween according to Pottery Barn. Using a glass pumpkin from Goodwill, Monica shows readers how to create a faux pas mercury glass pumpkin and shares a photo of the exact type of Krylon paint she uses.
Confetti Pumpkins- Kim from Made in a Day is spot on with this year’s glitter pumpkin trend using Elmer’s glue and confetti from Party City, “Confetti in various colors (Party City) and a sponge applicator.” And did you see how professional and smart she was to tell you what brands and where to buy the products she used?
DIY Spider Webs- Can you tell what these spider webs are made out of at first glance? Look closer…still can’t tell? Garbage bag companies, take notice. Julie from Coco and Cocoa turned garbage bags into Halloween décor!
Ghost Mirror- Creative and a bit creepy, Rebecca from Cre8tive Compass used Krylon paint to create a ghost mirror for her 2011 Halloween décor. That project was for a Kmart campaign Rebecca participated in. The post still resurfaces Halloween after Halloween.
Spider Egg Sack- Who knew tights are not only a popular Fall fashion accessory, but also used as Halloween décor! Stephanie from The Tiptoe Fairy stepped out of the box with these spider egg sacs!
