With Halloween around the corner, there is still time to make something spooky to wear or to decorate your home with.

Great Halloween Costumes
Do you like to plan your Halloween costumes months in advance? or are you a last-minute kinda person?
Whatever you want to dress up as this post can give you a few ideas – from Freddy Kruger (the knitted sweater) to a cat with some black cat ears.
Making unusual Halloween costumes will get you noticed at any parties you go to this season.
Don’t pick something you know that everyone else is going to wear, but make something that shows off your maker skills as well as your individuality!
