My sister-in-law is almost as obsessed with Halloween as I am. Almost. When her birthday was approaching this year, I knew exactly what I would make as her gift, for the front door of her new house. This spooky yet classy wreath will be greeting trick-or-treaters in style.
Some of the most popular indoor Halloween decorations I’ve seen online and in stores are those spooky apothecary jars and potion bottles that make up witch-themed displays. I love creating labels like the ones you see in these displays, they can make any ordinary piece of glassware into a frightening decoration. You can also use them for food and drink labels at Halloween parties. I’ve designed many of these labels over the years, and today I’ve chosen one to post here for you to use for your own decorating.

It’s summer and prime time for Halloween DIY projects. Summer gives me the long days and warm weather to take full advantage of the outdoor space for working with foam insulation board, power tools, spray paint and other not-so-indoor-friendly materials. Every year I make a list of projects I want to tackle but I rarely ever get to all of them. I have found that the best way to keep track of all my ideas and works-in-progress (which sometimes carry over to the next year) is to make a worksheet for each project. Of course, since I am a graphic designer, everything I create that gets printed is designed to the hilt. So in this post I’m sharing my Halloween Project Worksheet, which I am offering to you as a PDF download so you can keep records of your projects too.
Welcome to the Raven Hollow Designs blog, version 2.0! Halloween is the best season of the year (although some people call it fall, or football season), don’t you think? Over the years I have created and acquired many dark and spooky items which I use to decorate as much of my home as possible for Halloween (and usually throw a big party to show it off). So for my first post, let’s go on a Halloween Home Tour!
