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

Blueberry-Lime Sangria


I'm pretty obsessed with sangria wine lately. I've never made sangria 100% from scratch. Too many ingredients. I know, I'm lazy. When you live in a place that can only sell wine and beer at the grocery store, you tend to stick to wine and beer. I stumbled upon this Madria bottled sangria wine after I moved to Texas last year, and I love it! I used it to make this spiced apple cider sangria last fall, and now this blueberry lime sangria that is perfect for spring and summer. If they don't sell it in your area, simply use any kind of bottled red sangria wine. Here is a great list of the top ready-to-drink sangrias. Of course Madria is on the list.


INGREDIENTS
*makes one pitcher - serves about 4 people
  • one regular bottle of Sangria wine 
  • one liter lemon-lime soda
  • four limes cut into wedges
  • three cups frozen blueberries
Pour the wine and soda into a glass or clear pitcher, add the fruit and stir, then let it chill in the fridge overnight before serving.
