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

March Letter from the Editor


I've never been a big believer in luck. I believe what others perceive as good luck is often the visible result of a lot of hard work and perseverance that has gone on behind the scenes. Lucky breaks don't just happen to people who don't have the right foundation for it.

Do I feel lucky to have met my fiance? To finally have met the perfect person for me? Of course. But it isn't due to some single lucky break or some chance encounter, but rather the result of action, timing, and perseverance.

I don't believe in bad luck either...not as people often refer to it anyway. I believe bad luck is a phrase people like to apply whenever faced with negative consequences. And much like prayer, the hope for good luck takes our responsibilities out of the equation. Show me a "lucky" person, and I'll show you someone who has worked hard, made wise choices along the way, and has persevered through challenges. Show me someone who is "down on their luck" and I bet that person is the type to blame others, to refuse to do the necessary work, and who gives up as soon as things get difficult. Now, don't get me wrong; I know that sometimes bad things just happen to us, things beyond our control. But again, we become faced with the option of hoping for good luck to come along or choosing to work for it. And when all else fails and you can't immediately change your circumstance, you can at least work through it, to the best of your ability and with a good attitude...that is perseverance.

I suppose you could say I do believe in luck after all, though I beg to differ with the Mirriam-Webster definition. I don't believe it just happens to us by chance. Good luck is something we create. Let's create some good luck this month.
