Decorate your home with Springoween goodies
Many spooky small businesses create items that are perfect for Springoween. One thing you’ll see a lot are wooden bunnies inspired by the iconic Easter Peeps. I made the ones in the photo to celebrate the season last year, but shops like Glass Manor have them in their shop for sale.
Do a spring DIY
Pinterest is a gold mine for crafts and projects. You can make a wreath or pumpkin planter. Miranda from Spooky Little Halloween has a great roundup of some of the best Springoween DIYs.
Make an Easterween basket
If you’ll be surprising a little ghoul in your life with an Easter basket this year, and you want them to get in the Spingoween spirit, add a little Halloween twist. Throw in some plastic pumpkin eggs or some Nightmare Before Christmas socks. There are many little Halloween treats you can add to the basket.
Do a Halloween Egg Hunt
Last year, my family started the tradition of doing a Halloween egg hunt. It works the same way as an Easter egg hunt except that the eggs used are pumpkin shaped. I’ll be adding some pumpkin eggs to the sea of pastel that will be in our backyard when my family does our annual egg hunt.

Dress the part
I know, I know. We all want to wear our black clothes every day of the year, but spring means we can wear bright, fun colors. Grab your pumpkin purse and pair it with your brightly colored dresses and shirts.
Spring clean your house
While this one isn’t technically a spooky thing to do, cleaning your living space really helps you bring in the new season. And while you’re cleaning out the closet, be sure to take a look through your Halloween decor and get rid of the stuff you know for a fact you’re not using this year.
Buy Springoween goodies from a spooky small business
Springoween hasn’t made its way into the mainstream just yet, which means the only places to buy something like a pastel pumpkin purse is a spooky small business. So many shops sell Halloween merchandise year round and they tailor their designs to the seasons. A favorite of mine that has seasonal spooky items is Cats Intuition.
Decorate your April calendar with Springoween stickers
If you’re a planner ghoul, you can celebrate Springoween by decorating your April (or May) spreads with Springoween stickers
Do whatever fills your spooky heart
Once again, there are no rules to Springoween. You can celebrate any way you wish. Or, if you feel like saving those spooky vibes until later in the year, that’s OK, too. The spooky community is constantly evolving and always changing up how we celebrate spooky season. So who knows? Maybe next year, there will be more fun Springoween traditions to try out
