Is Idaho One fo the Best States for Homemade Halloween Decorations?
There is a lot of pressure for Halloween. What costume does your child or grandchild want this year? Is there a cake decorating contest at the festival at school? Your spouse wants to wow the co-workers and you get the job of making it happen.
These kinds of pressures can be a big undertaking if there aren’t months to plan. Maybe local businesses can help. Etsy is big in Idaho. In fact, Idaho ranks 3rd for Homemade Halloween Goods. EmpireStakes.com put together an awesome table.
Not all that surprising that Utah beats out Idaho, but a little surprising that Oregon takes the number one slot.
Having utilized the attic boxes for costumes as a kid as well as handcrafting costumes out of foam padding, staples, and spray paint, this process isn’t for the faint of heart. If there isn’t a creative idea in the head, how can you possibly put something together? Not everyone is a designer. That’s why we pay people to design for us.
If you are hoping to shop local in Arkansas, Hawaii, or West Virginia, you may have fewer options. Maybe there is an Etsy provider that takes care of all the Halloween needs and monopolizes the market. That, or people in Mississippi aren’t that creative or business oriented.
Sometimes there isn’t the talent for making that one-of-a-kind costume or decoration. Maybe the ideas elude you. There’s no shame in getting help from local makers. You can make the completely honest statement ‘It’s hall homemade’ and not have to divulge it wasn’t made in your home. You’re getting a great product and supporting local businesses at the same time. What a thoughtful person.
