10 Halloween Crafts for the Home and Table

Welcome to the 507th Metamorphosis Monday!

I’m leaving for Egypt today. I plan to post a good bit while I’m away. Hopefully, I’ll have some fast WiFi in the hotels where we’ll be staying.

I’ll also be posting a lot to Instagram while I’m away. Instagram is the easiest and quickest way to share in real time, so be sure to look for updates there each day.

If you would like to follow my adventures across Egypt over the next two weeks, you’ll find BNOTP on Instagram here: BetweenNapsOnThePorch. You don’t have to have an Instagram account to follow. Just bookmark that link and check in each day for that day’s adventures.

Metamorphosis Monday

Metamorphosis Monday is a party that’s all about Before and Afters. If you are participating in Met Monday, please link up using the “permalink” to your MM post and not your general blog address. To get your permalink, click on your post name, then just copy and paste the address that shows up in the address bar at the top of your blog, into the “url” box for InLinkz when prompted.

In order to link up, you’ll need to include a link in your MM post back to the party so the other participants will have an opportunity to receive visits from your wonderful blog readers.

Feel free to link up Before and After posts that are home, gardening, decorating, crafting, painting, sewing, cooking, fashion, travel or DIY related.

Be sure to include a link back to the party in your post, so your readers will be able to find and visit the other bloggers who are participating.

Do not link up to the party if you’re only doing so to promote or sell a product.

To those linking up, if you notice a shop or online store linking up to sell products (yes, unfortunately, that happens) please let me know so I can remove their link and block them from participating in future parties. No one wants to visit a link expecting a Before and After, only to find a spam link to an online business/store.

  3. Thank you so much for hosting.

  4. Great ideas, Susan. Have a wonderful trip.

  5. Enjoy your trip! Loved all your Halloween Craft ideas …especially the fun pumpkins. I’m going to have try some of them!

  6. Wishing both you and Teresa a fabulous and safe holiday. -Brenda-
    P.S.: So glad that you gals are travelling together and not solo.

    Thanks for the great Halloween craft ideas! Have a wonderful trip!! I’m eager to follow your adventures, Susan! Will check in on Instagram. Love the way you travel and fun to watch!

  9. The ravens and mice are so clever. I really like the denim pumpkin. I’m looking forward to my vicarious travel to Egypt. Stay safe.

  10. Have a great time and fit in some shopping! Loved seeing the Halloween ideas especially the bats and the mice on the staircase. Day of the Dead is huge here but the smart little Mexican children seem to be embracing Halloween more and more due to the expat population. Couldn’t be the candy, maybe.

  11. Thanks so much for hosting each week!!
