I’ve seen pretty sparkly pumpkins in recent years that look so fun for Halloween. I wish when I was a kid we had Pinterest to find blogs with super cool ideas for holidays. Luckily raising my daughter I can find fun inspiration and lots of supplies at the craft store. Oh what a time to be alive! There might be craziness in the world but the crafting has never been better. I was wanting sparkle without using glitter so I used glitter spray paint and it was so fun to use! I may have gotten a little extra sparkle on our patio, whoopsie, I hope my fiancé likes the glitter porch. I’ve been on a mermaid kick since the summer and I wanted to bring it into the fall. Mermaids don’t need to stay in the summer and since we live near the ocean why not have a mermaid themed pumpkin. I love how pretty and sparkly this diy mermaid pumpkin is, I think it looked even better in person. It’s hard to capture in pictures just how sparkly it looks.

I absolutely love the Trolls movie! It’s adorable and my daughter loves it. I made her this cute little trolls costume to wear for fun but it would be perfect for Halloween. I made this easy no sew tulle skirt and organza ribbon headband. One year I ordered my daughter a costume on Etsy, it was adorable but I realized the tulle skirt is something so easy to just make myself for the next time. Just put the skirt over a solid blue dress or blue shirt and pink or blue shorts. This diy trolls costume is so easy really anyone can make it. If I can make it anyone can.
My daughter has been obsessed with the poop emoji since she discovered it! She is only 6 but she loves texting family with emojis on my phone. She has an emoji backpack and loves all the emojis. She loves the rainbow poop emoji even more than the poop emoji. I thought it would make a cute costume. I don’t know how to sew so I am not making any fancy costumes for her. I also don’t want to put a ton of effort into something she will wear a couple times. This costume is prefect for an emoji lover and incredibly easy to put together.
The countdown to Halloween has begun! One of my favorite things to do around Halloween is watch Hocus Pocus. It’s my absolute favorite Halloween movie. Yes, I prefer the funny movies to the scary movies. I can do a little bit of scary but nothing too creepy. There’s this thing called sleep that I don’t get enough of and would prefer not to fill it with anything scary. My daughter’s five, I don’t know if she is quite ready yet for Hocus Pocus or would be interested in it but you better believe I will do my best to show her the ways of the Sanderson sisters. Hocus Pocus is really a great movie for any age(in my opinion). These fun Hocus Pocus party printables are perfect for a Halloween movie night with friends or kids. I made toppers and signs that you can get the free printables for below. I also made decorations that can be used for banners, centerpieces or hanging up. Get the printables below.
This is how I like my spiders! With glitter and you know, not real. I don’t have a fear of spiders but I would definitely jump a bit if I saw one. Halloween is the time of spider and all things creepy but I like to make my creepy things look more pretty than creepy. These diy glitter spider rings were really easy to make and transform basic spider rings into something shiny and pretty. These are good for kids and adult parties. You can also use them as table decorations or wine charms.
These monster eye Halloween Hershey Kisses are the easiest Halloween dessert for parties or to pass out to trick or treaters. You can just have a bowl of Halloween Hershey Kisses for guests. Since I always have googly eyes for crafts(I use an excessive amount of googly eyes) I though they would be perfect to put on some kind of candy. The bottom of the kisses are the perfect size for a googly eye. You can put these in the bowl of candy to pass out to trick or treaters to add a little more fun to the candy.
I can’t believe it is almost October! That means it is time to get ready for Halloween. I always like to make cute desserts with my daughter. I usually like the no bake or easy to bake desserts. My daughter and I also have a thing for candy eyes. We needed some inspiration for cute treats to make and boy did we find it! I cannot wait to make these adorable Halloween desserts kids will love.

Everyone has there favorite Halloween candy. I’m a chocolate gal and Kit Kats are one of my favorites. My daughter and I both go for the chocolate. I may have to secretly hoard some of the Kit Kats and chocolate goodies. If you can’t steal candy from your children then who can you steal candy from?! The fun thing about making these easy Halloween Kit Kat Bars is they come in different colors for a variety of Halloween things. I saw these in the store with white, orange and chocolate all in the pack. I knew they would be perfect for making cute Halloween creatures!
My daughter loves to wear headbands! She also is big into dress up and pretend play. I wanted to make a monster headband for her and this diy monster headband was really fun to make. I used things we had around the house to make it. You can make it for pretend play or with a Halloween costume. A lot of monster costumes have a huge fuzzy part that goes over your head. Most kids I know wont wear costumes that cover up most of their head. You could then just glue a bunch of googly eyes on a dress and black felt for a mouth . Bam you have an easy no sew costume. This I thought would be fun for my daughter to wear to school without having to dress up in a costume.
I’ve been in to the ghost ideas this week for Halloween. These Halloween ghost crafts and desserts from around the web all look so fun to make! What is Halloween without ghosts?! My favorite Halloween costume to date was when my daughter dressed as a ghost and I dressed as a ghost buster. I had to by a mans costume because the female ones weren’t exactly trick or treat friendly. She was so adorable in her ghost costume I found on etsy. These ghosts ideas from around the web have something for adults and kids.
