DIY Monster Spray

Got monsters lurking under your bed? Just in time for Halloween, make a fun spray to keep those crazy monsters away! 

I'm creating some Halloween goodies bags and was so thrilled to stumble across the monster printable from Chica and Jo! I decided to kick it up a notch.

What you'll need:
Bottle of body (or room) spray
Halloween body glitter dust
Glue stick
Glitter nail polish 

1.  Download and print label (I adjusted the size to fit my bottle)
2. Add glitter nail polish to the printables 'spray' for an added effect
3. Cut out, apply glue stick to label and wrap around bottle

Easy peasy right?

I added about 1/2 teaspoon of body glitter to body spray. 
I love the extra sparkle and shimmer it adds!

Aside from chasing away monsters, it also works great as a room air freshener! Even better, it's a fun non-candy Halloween treat for kids.

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 :)

DIY Felt Stethoscope

 My lil gal loves all things Doc McStuffins. We've made a Big Book of Boo Boos, Lambie Tail Treats & Boo Boo Stickers. So to add to her doctors kit, I created a felt stethoscope. Now she can perform check-ups on all her toys!

 What you'll need:
Plastic headband
1 foot of ribbon (shorten if needed to insure ribbon can't be wrapped around child's neck)
2 - 2" x 5" Red felt for ears (extra for hearts)
2 - 3" Ivory felt circle
1" x 3" Tan felt rectangle
Brown permanent marker
Hot glue gun
Needle and thread

Wrap the ends of the headbands with felt strips and hot glue. Finish by adding glue and pinching to seal off end of headband. The felt ends should be large enough to fit over the ears and not in the ear canal at all. If necessary, add more felt to thicken.

Using the hot glue gun, attach heart to small band-aid center. Using the brown marker, add dots for a finishing touch. Attach band-aid to one of stethoscope circles with hot glue.

Loop one ribbon end over headband and attach with hot glue. Using the other end of the ribbon, attach to the back felt circle.

Place stethoscope top (with band-aid) on top of the back felt circle and stitch where ribbon meets with a blanket stitch. Stuff with Poly-fil & close with blanket stitch.

(I had to make 20 of these & completely forgot to take photos as I made them. If you have any questions, please ask!)

 The Doc is in!
