Kids aren’t the only ones who dress up and have fun on Halloween. It’s a fun holiday for adults, too – and costumes are just the beginning. Dressing up and going to a Halloween party with your adult friends while the kids are out collecting candy is a great way to relax and channel your inner child. The right Halloween snacks and drinks make every Halloween party even more fun. It’s better than trick-or-treating for candy and gives you a chance to feel like a kid again. [Read more…]
It’s fall! It’s also time to make goodies for back-to-school events, harvest parties, and Halloween. These easy Rice Krispies Pumpkins are quick to make and will crown you Queen of Cool Food! We guarantee it!! The idea is simple and can be varied as much as you care.
Emily’s children are older now, and cereal isn’t always in the cupboard. Furthermore, Rice Krispies cereal was hardly a favorite except for making those ooey gooey bars all children crave. While Krispies weren’t available, Rice Chex were. Crushing this cereal resulted in something that would work well. Experimenting is always a good thing in the kitchen so she gave those a whirl.

Tootsie Pops are a favorite treat, especially on Halloween. I always loved them when I was a kid. I remember checking the wrappers for the “Indian” because that mattered for some reason. As an adult, I’ve realized that the colorful wrappers and sweet taste make the perfect trick or treat gift on Halloween. With this adorable Halloween lollipops project, you can dress up those Tootsie Pops to really make an impression. They’re perfect for Halloween decorations or for giving to the neighborhood kids who come knocking. And they’re super easy to make. [Read more…]
Candy corn are the rage this Halloween season… at least in my household. We love Halloween and we love to decorate! Why not do it with one of favorite Halloween treats? This Candy Corn Mason Jar Craft is simple and affordable to make.
These Halloween Party Decorations will be super spooky and fun to make! First things first – do NOT eat the trees! There is a wire in them. (Gulp!) Everything else is edible. These are yummy and adorable Halloween centerpieces! The original post says they are not edible; however, it’s because of the black wire they used. Instead of black wire, I twisted my trees together and then used black electrical tape to tie it together. [Read more…]
No matter how you carve, slice, steam, roast, drink it, I LOVE PUMPKIN! (Carve as in pumpkins, slice as in pie, steam as in cook, roast as in seeds, drink as in latte….)
This year I carved one pumpkin and cooked another. I wish I had taken a picture of my carved pumpkin before I fed it to the buffalo. Next year…. My other pumpkin I cooked in a way similar to how I steam squash. Scoop out the seeds and goo in the middle, peel, chunk it up, and steam it until soft. I had SO MUCH pumpkin! I used some of it for my healthy organic pumpkin brownies and some of it I used for these scrumptious whoopie pies.
Here’s what I did:

I saw this little craft on Pinterest a while ago so we started saving our paper towel and toilet paper roll tubes. It took about 2 minutes to make but is really going to spook those trick or treaters this Halloween! Peek-a-Boo monster eyes are spooky and creepy and easy to make from recycled toilet paper and paper towel rolls and glow sticks. I love this project because we are recycling and can get glow sticks at the dollar store. This project only costs about $1 to make!

Halloween this year for my house has a candy corn theme going on. I don’t know how it happened but each DIY project I was attracted to was candy corn related. First the Candy Corn Cones and then the Wine Bottle Candy Corn Light and now these easy and tasty candy corn crafts!
These tasty projects made with actual candy corn were a lot of fun. They are great for all ages and if there’s a candy corn that splits, YUM! That works too.
The candy corn bracelet, necklace and garland are all created the same way. EASY!
Here’s what we did:
Last night I made a super cool Halloween craft – the candy corn cone craft I’ve been seeing around everywhere. I thought they were great, but I wanted to brighten it up a bit. With all the excitement of meeting Kathie Lee Gifford over the weekend, I also had wine on my mind. 😉 Also, on my way to work this morning, when I talked to my sister about it, we came up with this quick and easy wine bottle candy corn light. Tonight I worked through it as it was a little bit trickier than the candy corn cones. The smooth surface and shape of the bottle created a little challenge but was well worth it!
Here are the steps for this Halloween Craft Candy Corn Light:
Is it really only 2 weeks until Halloween? Wow! Time flies by when you are crafting! The fall leaf rose was such a success a lot of our projects took a back burner as we answered our fans’ comments on the blog and on Facebook and made the video tutorial for leaf roses. But now we are back to creating, crafting, and sharing! We stumbled on to these Candy Corn Decorations last night at Adventures of Goldilox and just had to try them! So easy, affordable supplies and they come out so darn cute, what’s not to love?! Because you can put them inside or outside, they are perfect for brightening up any decor and bringing out the good feelings of this time of year. Just make sure if you put them outside you bring them in during rainy weather!
My sister and I live in a small town with very few places to shop and even fewer places to buy unique and affordable Halloween costumes. I don’t know how many times one of us would go to a Halloween party and discover one or two other people dressed like us. It was so embarrassing! But now we order our costumes online and save money, time, and find original costumes. With thousands of place to choose from online, variety is a given!
Below are my top 3 favorite places to shop online for Halloween costumes and costumes for other occasions.
