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

"Darcy Merriweather has just discovered she hails from a long line of Wishcrafters-witches with the power to cast spells by making a wish. She's come to Enchanted Village to learn her trade but finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation..." ~from Book 1 of the Wishcraft Mystery series by Heather Blake.

I've been reading this book series for years, and I absolutely love it! Ken and I both like anything having to do with the supernatural, so we both enjoy books and movies that have a supernatural angle. If you keep up on Instagram, you know we love shows like The Originals, Supernatural, and the new Midnight Texas (which we highly recommend and is based on a set of Charlaine Harris novels).


Though the Wishcraft Mystery series does contain a murder mystery in each novel, and has multiple supernatural themes, it definitely doesn't fall into the horror genre at all. It's a very charming story, set in a magical New England town, full of interesting characters and heartwarming relationships...and a few adorable animals who can talk (because they used to be people).

The protagonist, Darcy Merriweather is someone I think people in their thirties and forties especially can really relate to, even though she happens to have magical powers. She is divorced and starting over in the Enchanted Village. Darcy tends to find herself trying to move on from ghosts of the past, while dealing with the hectic day-to-day, and working towards the future of her dreams. I think we can all relate to that as adults.

It's a light read, but not too light. The writing is smart and witty, and the plot has a lot of interesting layers to it.

There are currently seven books in the Wishcraft Mystery series. You can get them all here > or start with the first one - It Takes A Witch. I just finished up the sixth and will be starting on the seventh one soon. If you try it out, give me a tag on Instagram with #KCLBookClub to let me know if you like it!

  1. I love series like this! You should read the "Cheese Shop Mystery" series which is about this lady who owns a cheese shop and gets involved in murders happening in her town. I LOVE the recipes and food in this book.
