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

5 Modern Ways to Wrap a Present


Holiday wrapping doesn't have to be all about red and green or snowflakes and Santa. While I do like to have more traditional wrapping underneath my tree to match the decor, I love to dress up my friend's presents with something bold and modern. It's also nice to have leftover wrapping paper rolls in designs I can use all year round. If you want to make these modern gifts a bit more festive, dress them up with glittered ribbon or a sleek ornament gift topper.

1. Weathered Wood Grain Paper by the Paper Kit - Faux wood grain paper is a top gift wrapping trend this season. I think it's a cool way to wrap a guy's gift, especially if you top it off with simple black ribbon. To dress it up for a gal pal, tie it with a velvet brown ribbon and a woodland creature ornament gift topper.

 
2. Anthropologie Mod Geo Wrapping Paper - Geo print has been trendy in both home decor and fashion this year. It only makes sense it has translated to paper printing. I like how this geo print paper from Anthropologie has some silver shimmer to it. Pair it with shimmery silver ribbon for a modern yet festive presentation.


3. Neon Wrapping Paper - Bold color can look incredibly modern if you go with a bright neon paper. Tie it off with ribbon in a contrasting color.


4.
Anthropologie Marbled Wrapping Paper - A marbled finish in another trending print lately, and it's absolutely beautiful on paper. Just like the geo-print paper from Anthropologie, this marbled wrapping paper has some holiday shimmer to it. The sparkly string ribbon looks perfect with it.


5. Chalkboard Kraft Paper Roll -
Much like traditional brown Kraft paper, a roll of Kraft chalkboard paper is a versatile way to wrap a present any time of year. For the holidays you can draw on words like Merry Christmas and Ho Ho Ho, and you can even draw on a bow. Though I'd be concerned with using regular chalk. I'd hate for it to rub of. Instead use a white liquid chalk marker. Tie it off with red and white baker's twine.
