ghostin’.

Here’s a super quick and super fun way to add a lil spoopy to your Halloween treat bags. For this project, any paper bag works! Halloween doesn’t need to be all orange and black. I went pink! (Side note: Yes, these are random bags I had in my stash!) For this project you will need: paper treat bags, black and white felt, fabric scissors, and hot glue. Cut out ghost shapes with white felt and ghost features with black felt. Use hot glue to attach eyes and mouth to the body, and also to attach the ghost to the treat bag. Add treats! I love finding limited edition Halloween treats and non-sweet items to put inside my treat bags. For these bags I found pumpkin and bat shaped pretzel packs, pumpkin pie Kit Kat, Reese’s in fall colors, plastic spider rings, bubbles with character caps, and kitten ears. Hm, can we say – Target for the win! So easy, right? Happy haunting! OooOo, and share your favorite Halloween treats below!

I wish I could take credit for making these, but I actually found them on Etsy. When I came across the California bottle openers I got super excited. What was even more exciting is that the maker – Julian of Sheety Metal Gifts – is based in our city of residence. If I wasn’t making it myself, supporting handmade businesses was an important element I wanted for our wedding. Here are the bottle openers fresh after the laser cutting stage. After cutting, the little Californias went into the metal tumbler for polishing. …
