Witch Hat Tee

Add a touch of magic to your little ones wardrobe with a witch hat tee! 

Inspired from an adorable tee I saw from Izzy & Ivy, I followed their hat template as my guide. 

 You'll need: 
Halloween fabric
Fusible webbing
Embroidery thread

The whole thing took less than an hour to create. And aside from the spiders legs & web no other sewing was involved! Woot!

Add a tutu & pair of leggings and you've got one cute Halloween outfit!

Pumpkin Crayons

Fall is finally here & I'm in full force holiday craft mode! Woot!
My Halloween candy idea came to a screeching halt when I discovered my daughters new school is sugar-free!  

 While I've been racking my brain for a sugar-free classroom treat, my lil gal lost her first tooth last night. Eek! I told her she had the perfect pumpkin smile & then an idea dawned on me...
Boxes of crayons disguised as pumpkins!

Sugar-free & what kid doesn't love crayons? A win-win to me :)

 Five made and nineteen (!!!) more to go!

What you'll need:
Box of crayons
Scrapbook paper
Glue stick
Paper punches (1-hole, circle & scallop)
Bakers twine (or make your own here)

Two of the scrapbook papers I used are available to download for free:

 Happy Halloween my pretties!

DIY Ghost Leaves

Boo! Say hello to our ghost friend created with silk leaves. Super easy & so cute. We made these little ghouls last year & thought it'd be fun to bring them back! Want to make some with your little goblins? Let's get started.

You'll need white paint, brush, wiggly eyes, glue and silk leaves (we used small & large sizes).

Paint both sides with white paint. Let dry & glue on the eyes. That's it! Super fun Halloween decorations your kids will be proud to show off!

Love how the ends of the leaves started to fray. Adds to the spookiness!

She's so proud! We hung the big guys in our front window and made a garland with the little ones for her room.

Hope you'll try making a few to add to your Halloween decor!
Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Ghost Feet

I love this time of year! My little gal and I have so much fun doing craft projects together. When I saw this idea posted on Pinterest, I knew we had to give it a whirl.

We started off with a canvas and painted it black.

Next we made a puddle of white paint for her to wiggle her foot in. She giggled and had a blast. Next carefully place each foot down onto the canvas.

We added some googly eyes, adhesive letters and glitter paint 
(cause everything we do has to sparkle, even ghosts)!
She wrote her name and dated the back of the canvas.

Last, I attached some ribbon using my staple gun so we could hang it!

Easy peasy! I love that every Halloween we'll have a special decoration to cherish from when she was little :)

Back to School Teacher Gift

My little girl recently started kindergarten and we wanted to start off the school year with a treat for her new teacher. Just a little something to show her how important we think she is.

 We filled a reusable bag with items that teachers could use in their classrooms, especially on those long days during parent-teacher conferences. Trial size products are great.

Spiral notebooks
Ballpoint pens
First aid kit
Air freshner
Nail files
Wet toilettes
Mouth wash
Hair spray
Hand cream
Listerine breath strips
Nivea lip balm
Granola Bar

Teacher appreciation printable 

Be creative & surprise your teacher with a back to school gift bag!

I hope your children have an amazing year!
And a BIG thank you to all the teachers!
