Chalkboard paint is one of our newest obsessions, you can add it to almost any craft project for added cuteness! These Jack-O-Lantern Chalkboard Mason Jars are the perfect example.

It’s the perfect way to display some orange or black flowers for the Halloween season.

These adorable Yarn Monster Cupcake Picks are the perfect not-so-scary way to celebrate Halloween.
