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

Two Last-Minute Date Night Outfits


If you're going on a last-minute date, you can still put together a chic look with items you already have in your closet. If you're going on a simple dinner date or out to a movie, you need to wear something that is "dressy casual". You can't go wrong with some dark-wash jeans and dressy flats. Pair them with a nice blouse or layer a sweater with a shiny statement necklace. Add on a sleek crossbody bag just big enough to sneak in movie snacks!


Shop this look: L K Bennett lightweight sweater, $140 / Topshop jeans / Forever 21 pointed toe shoes / Mossimo crossbody shoulder bag / Black white jewelry


 
If you have a last-minute cocktail party or fancy dinner yet find yourself lacking in cocktail dresses, you can create your own dressy look with separates you may already own. Pair a nice blouse or a camisole tank with a pencil skirt to create the look of a dress, or pair it with dress slacks. Top off the look with pumps, statement earrings, and a sleek clutch.

Shop this look: Red camisole, $4.59 / Warehouse black knit mini skirt, $54 / Kurt Geiger slip on pumps / Forever 21 grey handbag / Sole Society statement stud earrings / Hinged cuff bracelet

  1. Oh, I like that outfit!

    For the most part, I'm not much of a clotheshorse--for everyday, I wear the same thing (hey, it works for guys like Jobs and Zuckerberg, and there are a couple of women in high fashion who also have a "uniform" of sorts)--but I do have a thing for black with bold colors for contrast.

    1. Unless it's an event, I tend to wear the same thing too - yoga pants if I'm chilling and jeans with a blouse if I need to run errands. Though the summer is different - an excuse for me to wear more dresses!

  2. Except for the shoes. I never wear heels and pointy toes are also a no-no.
