Easy DIY Halloween Party Favors

There are so many cute Halloween party favor ideas floating about the web, like the witch's broom goodie bags for example, though they do require some DIY experience. These tin-tie bakery bags are the perfect size for a Halloween goodie bag, and they require no crafting skills. I love howthe favor bags I made them with are cute enough for kids but still nice enough for the grown-ups as well. All you need are the bakery bags, ribbon, and 3D Halloween stickers from the craft store. You can use the smaller bag pictured above or a larger bakery bag with a window display. I like to fill the larger ones with treats to give out as holiday presents to neighbors and teachers.



Simply fill the bags with a Halloween treat (homemade or store-bought), close them up and tie them off with ribbon, then affix a sticker to each bag. These are food-grade bags, so they're perfect to fill with homemade fall treats like popcorn, kettle corn, or Halloween chocolates. Try my DIY gourmet popcorn

The Cutest Halloween Costumes for Babies

Hey, there is no shame in dressing up your baby, who isn't even old enough to walk yet, and parading them around in a stroller to get candy for yourself! Well, okay I guess most people do it purely for fun and for family photos. Whether you're doing it for all the right reasons, or you like to exploit your children for candy (like I do) here are some of the most adorable costumes.

  1. Really cute costumes. When my son was that age we just dressed him up in a skeleton onesie and hung out at home.

    I figured he wasn't old enough to trick or treat. He is 3 now and this will be his first year trick or treating. I'm excited.

  4. The first Hallowe'en is really for the parents then the kid. Same thing with everything in that first year.

    And the Jack in the box looks like he's about to break out into a crying spell.

  5. Yeah, I don't think that baby is very happy. But that is what the baby's first year is all about...rediculously uncomfortable photo opp's! I'm trying to remember...I don't think I dressed either of my girls up until they were able to walk. Oh, I take that back. Kaitlin wore a kitty cat sleeper, so technically I dressed her up. She was the cutest kitty in the whole world.:)
