Easy Halloween Washi Tape Candles

By: Jenny Batt, of Hank + Hunt Perfect for any dinner party, but exceptionally fun for Halloween, these decorated candles are made in minutes with washi tape. It’s a great way to dress up your standard taper candle and it comes right off to change your designs. The options for pattern and color are endless, but I love the look of gold on black taper candles. They pair well with vintage brass candle sticks and would look lovely at any party this season.

Mod Cow TableMy little guy adores everything cows, so when it came to designing his second birthday, I knew cows would be a dominant element…But, instead of going the direction of country cow, I took a bright, bold direction and opted for a more modern, or “Mod Cow” theme.

ten minute gnome costume

By Melanie of You Are My Fave

I don’t think I knew that store bought Halloween costumes existed as a child. My mom would somehow find away to whip up our costume requests, often tirelessly the night before. While I didn’t inherit her sewing skills, I know how to wield a hot glue gun and with that skill made this easy gnome costume. Trust me, the craft level to create this is beginner at most.

Easy Spooky Tree Halloween Place Cards

By Jenny Batt of Hank and Hunt

Halloween is on it’s way and we just decorated this weekend. I’m loving black and white with a single pop of color this year, like orange. One of the quickest ways to create memorable parties is to customize your decor. That will mean a stroll or two down aisles not necessarily for your type of party. For example, these place card holders in the shapes of little trees were actually on the wedding aisle. The shape is what caught my eye, a great twiggy form that would look fabulous a little spookier. Even the most novice crafter can rock a can of spray paint. This is the world’s easiest spooky tree diy, I promise.  Don’t be afraid to paint things, you can make amazing decor only armed with a can of spray paint. The best part is, spray paint is impossible to mess up. There are no fine lines to follow, just spray and go. Miss a spot? Spray it again. The key is just to use light coats so you don’t get drip marks, voila.

monster favor boxes

By Melanie of You Are My Fave


Since haunted houses make me cry and The Ring still haunts me over ten years later, I thought a more lighthearted party theme of monster mash would be a better fit for my Halloween festivities this year. These favor boxes are fun to make and easy enough that kids can help out. You could make a crafternoon out of it.
