DIY Monster Lights

| DIY, Halloween

I’m getting in to the Halloween spirit now that it is finally October. Although, it still feels like summer here it’s time for Halloween crafts, spooky fun, and of course Halloween candy! This week is all about monsters. I’m going more for the cute and cuddly kind of monsters not scary monsters. Honestly I don’t know how to make scary crafts I only do the bright color cute stuff. I also have always loved making things with googley eyes! Who doesn’t love silly fun googley eyes? This project is super simple with just googley eyes and the electric votive lights. You can glue the eyes all over, just around the top or bottom, or just two eyes looking at you. They might stare at you a little but they are cute as can be. I used colorful googley eyes to give it some extra fun. You can put them on a plate with a bunch of extra googley eyes surrounding the lights for decorations. What you need to make googley eye Halloween lights: Electric tea light/votives Googley eyes, a variety pack of colors and sizes Hot glue, if you are making them with kids use a different kind of glue 1. Starting around the top edge glue eyes on one by one. 2. Continue to glue them around to the bottom. You can cover the entire lights or just some like I did. 2. That’s all there is to it! Wait for night and turn them on! I mostly just got daytime pictures because it was harder to see the nighttime pictures but trust me they look really cute when the lights are on at night. You can see some of the colors of the eyes but the colors show off best in the day. They are cute glowing and staring at you with all of their eyes! You can make a bunch and line them all up in a row on a table or spread them out throughout a room. They are just too too cute! DIY Monster Lights

Monster Party Hats

| DIY, Halloween

Let’s do the mash, do the monster mash. I’m ready to party like a monster with some cute party hats. I love love these monster party hats. There are a few ways to make them with more added embellishments or super simple and suuuper easy. I like to show both ways so you busy mommas can save time when needed. My crafty party desires always exceed my amount of time to make things. I do have to say the blue monsters with the added fringe are my favorite. It could be that blues my favorite of the colors. I have blue, green, and orange monsters. These are just from a cheap pack of colorful party hats in a variety of colors. I’ve been holding on to these hats for a while and I finally found a way to use them. Love these for Halloween kids parties or a monster themed birthday party for your little monster. read more

DIY Llama Pumpkin

| Crafts, DIY, Fall, Halloween

A cute pumpkin to make with my DIY Cactus Pumpkin is this little DIY Llama Pumpkin! Llamas have been popping up all over the place. Llama decor and parties are the latest trend and let me tell you they are the cutest trend ever! I want llamas, the real ones but also some cute decorations. I don’t think my hubby would go for the llama decor in the house. For now I will stick to the cute little llama crafts. This is a fun pumpkin to make with kids but I’m not going to lie I was more into it than my daughter. She’s more of a penguin gal. However, we do love to feed the llamas at the zoo. This llama pumpkin is really simple to make. It took me less than half an hour. It is also real cheap to make I got materials from the dollar tree! For the face you can draw it like mine or look up llama pictures for inspiration. I added a flower crown but you can do it without the flowers as well. read more

DIY Cactus Pumpkin

| Crafts, DIY, Fall, Halloween

I grew up in the desert where we have more cacti than pumpkins. I love how cactus have become trendy! They look so cute in craft form. Also as far as plants go it’s the only kind I can keep alive. We had about 10 indoor plants. Only 2 of them have survived my black thumb and one of them is a cactus. I made this cactus pumpkin from a dollar store foam pumpkin. It was incredibly easy to make and look how cute! You can also draw a little face on it. Plus nothing in this project is living so no chance of killing it. The best thing about this diy pumpkin craft is how incredibly simple it is to make. Seriously, anyone can make it and make it for a simple pumpkin craft. read more

| DIY, Fall, Halloween

pumpkin unicorn diy

It’s fall y’all! Ok it’s still hot here, but I’m ready for some fall decorations and crafts. I’ve seen adorable unicorn pumpkins for Halloween and I wanted to put a little fall spin on them. This cute fall unicorn pumpkin turned out even cuter than I had expected! I think I might need to make a unicorn for all seasons. Winter or Christmas unicorn is coming next. Thinking off the top of my head I’m thinking some kind of snow globe unicorn. Maybe a snowman unicorn. You can really incorporate unicorns into all occasions! Anyways back to the cute fall unicorn pumpkin. All of the materials are from the dollar tree. I have been having fun in that place for fall crafts. There small foam pumpkins have worked out perfect for decorating. I have two more cute pumpkin decorating ideas coming up, stay tuned! Hint one of them involves the desert and the other some kind of animal. All of my pumpkin crafts can be made with kids or just for fun adult crafts. If you are a mature unicorn kind of adult. Adulting so hard! read more

Witch Hat Party Favors

| Candy, DIY, Halloween, Party ideas

I’m feeling a little witchy with Halloween coming up! Not in an evil witch way. Ok maybe sometimes I wish I could act a little more witchy or sometimes I do act witchy like when I tell my daughter to pick up her toys for the 100th time. Overall I think I’m a good witch and handing out little witch hat treats makes me a really good witch. I always liked the spooky stuff as a child but as a mom I also enjoy the cutesy side of Halloween. These easy diy witch hat party favors are really cute to add candy too or little Halloween gifts, I made them tiny to be able to make enough for a whole group of kids. Plus, if you want to get all of the candy out of the house so you don’t eat it all(or is that just me?) this is a cute way to give it out to friends. Little chocolates or any little and cute candies would be perfect for these witch hat party favors. read more

Celebrate Halloween Without Leaving The House

| Halloween

Halloween is coming up and it is one of my favorite holidays! It is a holiday that every age can enjoy. As a kid it was such a blast to get dressed up and hello, loads of free candy?! What kid wouldn’t love that. Then you get to dress up as anything your heart desires. I personally loved the spooky stuff as a kid. My mom has always been a Halloween and scary movie fanatic! I was a dead cheerleader one year and my sister was beheaded Anne Boleyn. We embraced the bloody side of Halloween. Then in college I got into making my own Halloween costumes. I made a butterfly costume that was sparkly and super pretty. Yes, slightly slutty, but you’re only young once right? Now those wilder college Halloween party days are far far behind me and I have my own daughter. She loves holidays just as much as me. The spooky stuff she mostly finds funny, that’s my girl! She also loves costumes. Last your she was Princess Leia, the year before a ghost, and this year she wants to be an LOL Doll so I have to use my creative magic for that costume. We will do the trick or treat thing but at this age I mostly like to celebrate in pjs and get to bed by 10. That is why I have come up with a bunch of fun and easy ways to celebrate Halloween without leaving the house! Who says you have to get dressed and wear makeup to have fun? Halloween is one of the best holidays to celebrate from home. read more

Trick Or Treat Bag

| DIY, Halloween

Part of the fun of Halloween is who you spend it with. Kids love to get together for trick or treating together. My sisters neighborhood is where we have been trick or treating for the past few years. The cousins and their friends all like to get together for trick or treating. Now we are in a new place but I still want to make trick or treating fun for my daughter. We are going to invite some new friends along to trick or treat. For the occasion I made these fun little “trick or treat bag” and “trick or treat squad’ Halloween bags. They are filled with fun little goodies for kids on Halloween. You could also have these for adults at an adult party for party favors. For the kids I put glow sticks and glow bracelets, rings, stickers, erasers, and candy. There are a ton of creative little goodies you can put in these bags including Halloween socks, headbands, necklaces, temporary tattoos, anything glowing or neon, and candy. read more
