Boo! Ghost Berries

Spook up your Halloween with adorable ghost berries! 

Simply dip fresh strawberries in melted white chocolate and & add ghostly faces with dark chocolate.

What you'll need:
24 large fresh strawberries
8 ounces white chocolate chips
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 plastic baggie
1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with waxed paper.

2. Wash the strawberries and pat dry.

3. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until a smooth consistency. 

4. Hold strawberry by the stem & dip it into the chocolate until almost completely covered. Gently shake off excess. Place strawberry on baking sheet. Repeat until all berries are covered in white chocolate. Set aside for about 30 minutes so chocolate can set.

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

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!

Ghost Leaves Kids Craft

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!

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 school is sugar-free!  

 While I've been racking my brain for a sugar-free classroom treat, my lil gal lost another 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 twenty-one (!!!) 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:
