SPOOKtacular Favors

Halloween is just a few weeks away, so I thought it will be fun to share some fun Halloween gifts and party favors using the super fun and colorful Halloween Set from Amanda's Parties To Go.

For a fast and cute Halloween treat, grab a couple of your favorite candy bars, packs of gum or notepads and dress them up using  treat labels, tags and coordinating paper from Amanda's Parties To Go Halloween set.  I added washi tape to complete the look.

Manson jars gifts are always a hit and so easy to put together!

Create some Push Up Pops Candy Favors by adding some candy and embellishing the push up pops with some labels from Amanda's Parties To Go Halloween set

Instead of giving candy as a favor, how about transforming an inexpensive notepad into an adorable gift?

and of course to host a super fun Halloween party!
Happy Halloween!!

Trick or Treat Tray - turn a  plain wooden tray from Michaels into a cute decor for your home. Materials: wooden tray, ribbons, tule, scissors, Mod Podge and the cute spider from this Halloween set

Eyes on You Wreath - A Dollar Tree  wreath got turned into a spooky wreath! Materials: wreath, tule, glue gun and spook eyes printable from Amanda's Parties To Go Halloween set .

{Tutorial} Halloween favors

Easy Halloween favors! Who doesn't love them? 
They are cute, fun and inexpensive to make! 
All you need is some paper towel rolls, candy and Amanda's Party to Go Halloween party printable

paper towel rolls
3/4"  and 2" circle punch
glue, scissors
Cut the paper towel roll into several pieces of 2" inches. I used the water bottle wrappers from  Amanda's Party to Go Halloween party printable to wrap the the mini rolls. 
Attached ribbon of your choice, punch/cut a 2" inch circle from a scrapbook paper and glue it to the bottom of your mini roll, add a paper handle. 
Once is all dried, you can fill them with kisses embellished using the coordinated stickers 
Another cute and easy idea is to use 
test tubes and/or petri dishes as party favors.  
For these favors, I used the cupcake toppers from the Halloween party printable and ribbons. 
Just add some mini M&M's or mini marshmallows. 
I bought the petri dishes and test tubes at Amazon.
The set is only $9 right now (60% off) and includes a huge variety of designs for favors, decorating 
and of course to host a super fun Halloween party!

Edible Pumpkin Patch

My favorite part of Fall is to take the children to  Schnepf Farms! It is a whole day event that includes pumpkin patch, hay rides, pig races, petting Zoo, corn maze, yummy food, bon fire & marshmallows roasting and fireworks! So fun!!
Since we love pumpkin patch so much, I created our own Edible Pumpkin Patch! Super easy and fun to make! Enjoy!

Pumpkin Peeps and green licorice
round styrofoam 
tags from Bird's Halloween Cupcake Shop printable set
straws or sticks
twine or ribbons
toothpick and glue gun
picked fence(I bough mine at Hobby Lobby)
paper(to cover the styrofoam) 
extra orange sprinkles(optional)

To assemble the pumpkins:
I used extra orange sprinkles to cover the sides and bottom of the pumpkins. Cut a small piece of green licorice, add to the top of your pumpkin(for the stem) and insert a toothpick to the bottom of the pumpkin

Cover the styrofoam with crepe paper, add your bunting, pumpkins and fence. If you don't have a fence, you can easily make one using white card stock. Complete the look by adding some cute ribbon around the styrofoam. 
There! Your own Pumpkin Patch! 

Happy Halloween!
