From scrapbooking to arts and crafts with the kiddos, to just getting my house decorated with different projects – there’s so much you can do to get in the autumn mood and the spirit of the season!

Keep reading for my favorite scrapbooking layouts for Halloween and beyond, as well as a super cute Halloween craft to get the whole family involved in! A personalized scrapbook album is a perfect way to get the whole family involved in a fun activity!

Scrapbooking Inspiration: My Favorite Autumn Layouts

This first design is a BOO-tiful design! With ghosts everywhere on the page, add in a few pictures from the phantoms of Halloweens past and you are good to go!

This second idea is similar, using orange and black to really get the Halloween craft and project feel across! I love the idea of using different shapes and sized photos to create a modern effect.

This third idea is super fun and simple! The design incorporates some elements of purple which is a fun way to add some more color into your album. Did you see the little bat stickers fluttering around?

This final scrapbook layout is fall-fun! I love the minimalistic approach with the tree leaves that spell out “thankful”. It really reminds me how grateful we can be for the little things this season!

A fun Halloween craft idea

When I say Halloween, what do you think of … bats, witches, skeletons, oh my! This fun spider craft is a fun way to decorate the house, and get in the spooky spirit!

Craft idea from livecrafteat

1. Get some black construction paper

Cut strips of construction paper to make the base of your hat! Have the kiddos measure each others’ heads to get (approximate) sizes to cut the paper. My boys had a blast comparing their head sizes!
Next, cut out 8 “leg-sized” strips of paper (about 1 inch thick) and bend them back and forth, accordion-style.

2. Glue the base of the hat

Then, using tape, school glue, or even a glue gun (adult help needed!), create a circle with the first piece of construction paper. Next, attach the other strips that we previously folded to create the legs.

3. Decorate

You can get creative with this next part. Add in eyes with googly eye stickers, pompoms, markers, glitter …. the choices are endless. We also thought it would be fun to add glitter onto the spider’s legs for a sparkly surprise!
