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

Trending: Grey Ankle Boots for Fall


Grey is one of those colors we always see for fall, but for 2014, it's a little extra trendy. The season's hottest shoe trends, like mod boots and chunky-heel boots are available in shades of grey - from a soft heather grey to a dark smokey grey. You'll notice a lot of the light grey booties come with a soft suede finish and chunky wood-tone heels, while the dark grey boots tend to come in sleek leather. Though you can get suede ankle boots in just about any shade of grey this season. Here are some of my favorites at different price points. This content contains affiliate links.

There are so many ways to wear a grey ankle boot, though the looks featured above are my favorite ways to style them. I love grey paired with black and a rich shade of purple. This color combination works well the other way around as well. For example, pair a grey dress or sweater with a rich plum-colored satchel. A softer grey boot is more versatile. You can wear it with black and darker colors, but as you can see in Look #2 above, it also goes very well with beige, particularly a bootie with a brown chunky heel.
