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

Sponsored: Transform Your Walls with Giant Sticker Art


My favorite new trend in wall treatments is removable wall art. Decorative wall stickers have been around for a long time. I remember having giant animal stickers on my wall when I was a kid (I'm not going to say how many years ago that was). Though the trend died down for some time, I'm happy to say it's back in full force.

Dorm rooms and apartments can be tough to decorate. Space is often limited and the walls are always white. Wall Stickers add a lot of color and design without taking up any space. You can usually paint in a rental, but then you have to paint it back whenever you move out. That's money out the window each time you paint. I love how wall stickers are removable and reusable. And they're not just for kid's rooms anymore. How great is this Birds on a Wire Wall Decal (pictured above). It really adds a lot to this space without having to paint an entire wall or spend hundreds of dollars on artwork.

Wall stickers are also great in children's rooms. If you have kids you know that you have to rearrange their rooms often, whenever they grow out of furniture and need a larger dresser or bed or whenever brothers and sisters transition in or out of sharing a room. It can be frustrating trying to make pieces of art work in a space with a new layout. Wall stickers are such a quick and easy fix to fill up a big empty wall.

My favorite is a giant tree. It seems to be the most popular on most wall-art sites. They're so whimsical and fun. I've been wanting to get my daughter one for a long time. I also love the chandelier wall stickers.



Of course you can find them in all different sizes and shapes like border art, photo frame stickers, and clusters of shapes like butterflies or stars. You can even get a Christmas Tree Wall Sticker. How's that for saving space!

Phrases and inspirational quotes have also become popular in wall decals, but you can also use alphabet decals to label things in your home. Did you know you can order wall decals in any word or phrase you want? It's perfect for personalizing your home. For example you could order your child's name and place it over their bed. You could also custom order a word like "EAT" very large and in a bright color to use as pop art in your kitchen.

Alphabet decals aren't just for walls either. Label your child's toy boxes, crafts, clothing etc. with letter stickers or use them in a space like your pantry. If you want something more versatile you can even get Chalkboard Walll Stickers.
