LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV's lifestyle guru Chris Olsen has some great Halloween ideas on "THV 11 This Morning".

Party Pumpkins

It's fall, so let's celebrate! Why not be whimsical when decorating for your next party and create "party pumpkins!" Take any size pumpkins, orange or white, and hot glue grosgrain ribbon in a variety of colors (we used 3/4 inch) to the pumpkins. Create a "wave like" and dimensional effect that will not only add a bit of whimsy, but added color as well! Hot glue the grosgrain ribbon in a vertical or horizontal direction.

Rafia dyed in fabric dye and wrapped around a pumpkin is great as well. Unique and for sure totally different. Don't forget to even create a topper for your pumpkin with hair bans and lots of different colors and sizes of ribbon. Arrange a grouping of party pumpkins as a centerpiece or place them throughout your home for that added touch of fun!

Supplies:

- Any size pumpkins, orange or white
- Grosgrain ribbon, any width and color
- Hot glue gun/hot glue

Labeled Herb Delights

These unique herb and plant markers will add a delightful touch to any traditional garden or container garden! You will need: forks, lids from cans (canned veggies), an alphabet stamp set, and a hammer. As you're cooking, simply save the can lids. Next, find forks from your own home or at the dollar store. Take the alphabet stamping kit and read the directions. Decide what names you'll be stamping, begin the process, and hammer away! Take the forks and bend the two middle prongs backwards creating a space for the lid to slip into. You may hot glue the lid to the fork on the backside to add extra security. Place the unique herb or plant marker in your garden and enjoy!

Supplies:

- Forks
- Can lids
- Alphabet stamping set
- Hammer
- Hot glue gun/hot glue
