Halloween is just a little over a week away, and you’re still in summer mode. This is a problem.

You need to accept the fact that fall is here, and your jean cutoffs should be transported from your dresser to that box under your bed where you stuff seasonally inappropriate attire.

If you celebrate Halloween properly – that is, with unhealthy snacks, dramatic makeup and festive amounts of boo-ze (sorry, had to) – you’ll get into the fall spirit in no time.

Here are some tips from star YouTubers like Rosanna Pansino, Hannah Hart, Grace Helbig and more to make your Halloween awesome, even if you’re too cold to leave the house.

1. Make adorable Hocus Pocus cookies.
Rosanna Pansino, the baking wizard with over 4.8 million followers, whipped up some perfectly non-spooky sugar cookies based off of her “favorite Halloween-themed movie,” Hocus Pocus.

2. Indulge your crafty side and make Halloween bleach shirts.
Hannah Hart, the brains behind the hilarious My Drunk Kitchen show, gets her DIY on with Joselyn Hughes to make these Halloween-chic bleached T-shirts.

3. Hey, while you’re hanging with Hannah, whip up some ice cream (sand)witches.
Hart and Pansino teamed up to make something both dessert lovers and pun admirers could get behind.

4. Take the Candy Apple Challenge.
Why bob for apples in a tub of water when you could bob for apples in a tub of candy corn? Grace Helbig and Chester See just get us.

5. Get your face did.
Even if you don’t feel like changing out of sweatpants, let alone buying a costume, make your face super scary/fierce with these Halloween makeup tutorials from Roxxsaurus.
