I'm interpreting this as physically "gothing" things up...like putting bat stickers on your phone or something (a goth decora phone WOULD be awesome, btw). But I don't actually do this, or haven't done since high school. I decorated a few journals and put a NIN patch on my backpack and that was it. Reason for this: my DIY skills kinda suck.
But if YOUR diy skills don't suck, NOW is the time to hit the magazine racks and check out Halloween crafts from the Queen of Darkness herself, Martha Stewart. You know, crafts for Halloween...aka ALL YEAR ROUND.
|btw, Martha Stewart is awesome|
Actually, all of the home magazines have a halloween issue this month, but MS is awesome. There's some ideas on the website, but the good stuff (wisely) is in the print edition.
My halloween decorating is pretty modest, since tiny apartment=not a lot of room to store holiday stuff, but I made a few origami bats. If you'd like to try your hand at halloween origami, check out the halloween origami on this site.
|Happy Good Luck Bat by LaFosse, wet-folded out of water color paper. (an N. Robinson bat I folded form a post-it note is stuck to the window above the ghost)|
|this is the N. Robinson bat. It's easier than the LaFosse bat. also wet-folded out of water color paper. you can see the difference between wet folding and dry folding when you compare this bat to the one above that's taped to the window)|

woot for halloween decorating, amiright?
