Paper Haunted Houses

New video! This one shows how to create these 
paper haunted houses that you can fill with candy! 

And when the candy is gone, you can put a light in them (not a candle :) ) 
and use them as luminaries!


Candy doesn't last a super long time at my house, haha, so these
houses in the photo are not filled with candy.
But, something like the mini candy bars would be perfect to fill it with!

Here are the patterns you'll need:

(Hover over this, click the Pop-out icon in the upper right corner,
then click the print icon in the top center)

3 Cute DIY Pet Costumes

New video! This one shows how to create 3 different cute pet costumes for Halloween!



The first one is a Beanie Baby costume!



If you are around my age, chances are you probably owned your fair share of beanie babies growing up. Before my family even adopted our pug, I had (and loved) the Pug beanie baby named Pugsley - so here is a costume inspired by that!


The Ty tag template is here:

Hover over it, and click the Pop-out icon in the upper right corner.
Click the download icon in the top center. Locate and double click the file to open it.
Once it opens, you should be able to click to add your text to it.

Halloween Countdown Pumpkin

New video! October is here, which means Halloween is quickly approaching. Here is a tutorial to create a chalkboard pumpkin to count down to Halloween with!


You will need:
-a faux pumpkin
-chalkboard paint
-acrylic paint
-small & large paint brushes
-pencil
-chalk

1. Use the pencil to draw an outline of where the chalkboard paint will go on the pumpkin.

2. Fill this area in with chalkboard paint. It's best to do at least 2 coats - let dry an hour between coats.

3. Use the acrylic paint to add a border and the "days until Halloween" lettering.

4. Use the chalk to write in the number of days until Halloween. That's it!
