Last Minute Felt Pumpkin Candy Bag

With Halloween less than a week away I realized I still needed a candy bag for Mae. Not that she eats candy, but I definitely do! I remembered seeing a cute one on Pottery Barn Kid's site. However it was a little to late to order one and I did not really feel like paying that much when I knew I could make it for much less.     This is such a fun project you could make anything you like, a cat, ghost, or even Frankenstein. Whatever compliments your child's costume! The total cost was less then $5!  ...

SPOOKY TODDLER WITCH COSTUME

I am so excited for Halloween this year, it is fun every year, but Mae is turning 2 and will actually understand a little bit! Last year I made Mae a black cat costume (which was absolutely adorable!) This year we decided she would be a witch. Of course I couldn't buy one I HAD to make it.

For instance since we are no longer in Arizona, Halloween will be much cooler (at least for us) so I decided to go with a black velvet material which I...

All the kids came dressed up and even us adults got in on the fun!  Since the weather is somewhat nice at the end of October in Arizona we wanted to have some fun outdoor activities so we made a little pumpkin patch. It turned out so adorable and was a perfect spot for pictures....

Halloween Mini Triangle Banner

When I was at Hobby Lobby (I'm there way too much!) I came across the cutest Halloween scrapbook paper so I grabbed it knowing I would find something to use it for. A while ago I shared how to make a reusable banner and it is the perfect decoration for the holidays. You can save it and use it over and over without worrying about it getting damaged when you pack it away each year. So I decided to make a mini version of this banner. Its a chic fun Halloween decoration that would go great in any ones home!...
