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

Women's Printed Shorts {and How to Wear Them}

Dressy printed shorts are still on trend for 2014. I love the look, because it's a comfy way to be dressy casual in the hot summer months. The trend still focuses heavily on tribal and ikat prints, though florals look great too. The printed shorts for this summer tend to be high-waist like the ones last year. The only update for 2014 is that some are loose-fitted and flouncy, like the ones pictured below on the left. If you want to keep the look completely casual, go for printed denim shorts.

How to Style Printed Shorts

You'll want to pair printed shorts with a simple top; if they're black and white, go for a simple white tank, but if they have a colorful print, you can pick up on one of the colors with a solid-colored tee or tank. If they're high-waist shorts, you can pair them with a crop top or hi-low tank. When it comes to accessories, I like to pick up on the overall feel of the print. Like with the tribal prints, a boho-chic fringed bag or a beaded wrap bracelet is just the thing. With a more nautical print or the floral print shorts pictured above, I'd go with a nice woven bag. Because the printed shorts tend to be somewhat dressy, I'd go for some nicer sandals as opposed to casual flip flops.
