Printable Halloween Cards

Printable Halloween Cards

You know how with almost every holiday we give cards? Christmas cards, Valentines, a note of gratitude for Thanksgiving, Mother’s and Father’s Day of course–cards are expected for all these occasions and more! But somehow Halloween got the shaft when it came to the card gig. Instead, we give candy and treats! Now I’m not complaining, who complains about treats? However, I think that if we paired our goodies with a sweet Halloween card, everyone would be a bit happier! Personal opinion. These printable Halloween cards are the perfect thing for teachers, friends, co-workers, neighbors and anyone who needs a little sentimental spook! Write a little note on the back, tape on a bag of treats or a plate of cookies, or simply send in the mail!

Printable Halloween Candy Gift Box

Printable Halloween Candy Gift Box

‘Tis the season for giving goodies so why not tuck them into a printable Halloween candy gift Box while you’re at it! It’s much cuter than a handful of candy and makes the perfect gift for friends and neighbors! I’m loading up a bunch to give out to a few women at my church. I’m trying to be more aware of those around me and sometimes a little seasonal treat is just what the doctor ordered. These would also be great to take to your kid’s classroom or even to the workplace to brighten everyone’s day! Tied with a variety of ribbons, these boxes are a breeze to put together.

2 showstopper Halloween costumes made from everyday supplies

DIY mermaid costume diy mummy costume

We’re finishing up our Halloween series with Bath and Body Works (you can see the first one here and the second one here) with 2 showstopper costumes made from everyday materials. We were inspired by Tahitian Island Dream to create a mermaid and Warm Vanilla Sugar to create a gilded mummy. By “showstopper” we mean that these ones will take a bit more time, but the results are so so worth it, no?! We had every intention of going the traditional fabric/sea shell route, but after seeing how much fun it was to create the unicorn, hippies, and Marie Antoinette costumes, I wanted to get my hands on some non-traditional items again. Can you guess what we made the mermaid costume out of?  Read on →

2 paper Halloween costumes

As you know, paper is my medium of choice, so for today’s installment of costumes inspired by Bath and Body Works fragrance mists, we are creating 2 costumes made entirely from paper and I LOVE how they turned out. If I had a bazillion costume parties to dress for, I’d be every single costume we create but these one are closer to the top of the list. First, we created an oversized origami crane inspired by their Japanese Cherry Blossom fragrance as well as a bouquet of flowers costume inspired by their Hello Beautiful and Sweet Pea fragrances.

4 easy Halloween costumes for your baby

diy costume for kidsAs you are well aware by now, I love everything about costumes and I certainly don’t believe in wearing them just for Halloween either (exhibit A). But, social norms say that Halloween is the only appropriate time of the year to really go at it so we are going nuts this year. We teamed up with Ali Hynek who gave birth 6 months ago to the most beautiful and cuddle-worthy triplets of all time, Penelope, Ethan, and Alejandra (Sweet Pea as they are affectionately known on her Instagram feed). We spent two glorious days shooting these sweet peas and I couldn’t have been more in heaven (give me all the cuddles!!!!!). We’ve got three batches of costumes starting with this first one: quick and easy costumes for you baby. And check out 3 flower costumes for baby and 3 celebrity costumes ideas hereRead on →
