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

February Letter from the Editor


February has always been one of my favorite months. I love just about every holiday, and a holiday that involves love, hearts, and cute pink-and-red products...and of course chocolate, how could anyone not like February?

Though there are those who shun the holiday. People who are either recently heart-broken or have been single for longer than they care to be. I admit, it can be tough to be surrounded by reminders of what you wish you had, but the thing is, most of us have someone to love. Whether it be a parent, a child, a friend, or a romantic love; Valentine's Day doesn't have to be all about whether or not you have a date.

Granted this year I do have someone, finally. Someone who takes the initiative to be romantic, so much so that I have already gotten a gigantic bear and yummy chocolates simply because I had a rough week and he wanted to cheer me up.

But I've been without this wonderful man during previous Valentine's Days, and I always found ways to celebrate love. I focused on myself, my friends, and my family. I've spent years going out and getting my own chocolates, my own flowers, because I wanted those things. I've given my daughters Valentine's Day baskets filled with stuffed animals and little heart candies. I've received Valentine's Day cards from my mother, hand-written notes from my daughters, and flowers from my best friend.

My point is, you don't need a boyfriend or girlfriend to enjoy the holiday. You just need a good attitude and some love. Have a Happy Valentine's Day.:)

  1. You are SO right! No reason to wait on someone else to celebrate love, everyone should celebrate loving themselves!
