Halloween decorations don't have to be scary — or messy. Instead of hacking a jack-o'-lantern face on a pumpkin, you can cover one with gorgeous succulents. Or simply draw your jack-o'-lantern on an orange balloon, adding girlie eyelashes while you're at it. For ideas like this, we tapped DIY expert Erica Domesek, author and founder of the website P.S. — I Made This..., for her creative take on Halloween crafts. Together, POPSUGAR editors and Erica collaborated on these four stylish and nontraditional projects that will elevate your festive October decor. Check out the photos of each, and then click through for the simple step-by-step instructions.
