October Crafterween








Crafterween (my annual Halloween crafternoon) was last weekend. We made spooky apothecary bottles for decorations using bottles, and all sorts of spooky labels. My friend Heather made a baked mummy brie, and my friend Lindsey made a pumpkin shaped cheeseball for the occasion. You can see our costumes from left to right…Brittany was Bee from Bee & Puppycat, Lindsey was cotton candy, Katie was Mary Poppins, I was Little My, Heather was a cereal killer, and Molly was Ash from Pokemon.
That orange colored hair spray was a pain to wash out, but the stiffness helped hold my hair up in that kooky bun of hers. I’m still not sure what I’ll dress up as for Trick Or Treating but I’ve got a few ideas!

DIY- Vintage Easter Egg Dye Garland or Treat Boxes


I don’t have a lot of Easter decorations (when you compare it to my Christmas and Halloween goodies) so I decided I wanted to make a garland this year using scans from old boxes of egg dye. You could turn these little boxes into a garland like me, or use them as treat boxes instead.
I printed mine on card stock, and then punched small holes on either side so I could thread them onto string. You could also use holes to thread a handle for boxes. Just make a knot on the inside of the box to hold it in place.
You can download the boxes for printing here:Easter Boxes

You can string yours up with some beads, or mini foam easter eggs would be adorable too!
