Halloween Spider Dirt Cups

Halloween Spider Dirt Cup

Happy Halloween! Whether you go all out for the holiday or like to keep things simple, these spider dirt cups are the perfect way to add a bit of spooky fun to your day. Since Ian and I are in the phase of life where we don’t have any little ones to go trick-or-treating with, our Halloween celebrations are quite mild. Therefore, to get us in the holiday spirit I made a small batch of these creepy crawly dirt cups.

After a long day at work, these spider dirt cups can turn an ordinary evening into a mini Halloween party. Just put on Hocus Pocus and you are set! Your spooky evening is sorted! However, if you are looking to spice up your Halloween celebrations and throw a party these spider dirt cups would be a wonderful addition to your dessert table. Guests can even wear the spider rings after they enjoy their dessert! Can you really ask for more from a Halloween dessert?! I don’t think so!

Halloween Succulent Planters

Anyone else struggle finding Halloween decorations for their home? I find they are either too scary or childish for my liking. Therefore, most years I skip decorating all together or simply sprinkle a few pumpkins throughout our home. This year I was inspired to step up my décor game and made these easy DIY Halloween succulent planters to add a “spooky” element to our home.

Everytime I glance at one of these planters I catch myself smiling. That’s the whole point of holiday décor, right?! To bring joy into your home. Therefore, I’m glad I didn’t try to push myself into buying the skulls, bats, or creepy severed hand candy bowls that line the shopping aisles. Instead, I will enjoy my mini glitter pumpkins and googly-eyed planters. To learn how to make these planters at home, follow the instructions below!

This is a simple cocktail, but you can spice it up by using spooky Halloween gummy candy as a garnish. I choose gummy eyeballs, but if you can’t find them at your grocery store gummy worms would work as well!
