Rustic Halloween Crafts To Decorate Your Home

If you think Halloween is all about bright orange and green, think again! It’s easy to carry over a rustic decorating scheme right into the holiday season with some handy craft tricks.

The first idea is to take a dollar store pumpkin and give it a rustic aged look by antiquing it. Debbie Doos shows just how easy it is to accomplish this with a little bit of dark wax.

Another type of scrap wood pumpkin to add to your Halloween crafts is a stacked wood pumpkin craft. It gives a totally different look that is still rustic and super fun.
