Here is a picture of the treats I made for "booing" our neighborhood. And this is my hubby Derek right before he went to go sneakily drop it off. Sigh, he is SO cute!
I thought this looked pretty amazing. If I were a kid I would be afraid to eat this right away. How fun! You can find directions on family fun's website here.
I found this picture here it looks like they used peanut butter and marshmallows to make a scary monster mouth.
Here is another fun variation with candy corn & peanut butter!! How awesome. I found this recipe here. Tutu's and turtles has a few more kid friendly recipes. You should take a look!
These were SO easy to make!! I used the recipe from the back of the Kraft Caramels bag. They even include the sticks for the apples inside! I also just used some melting wafers to decorate the apples. They were YUMMY!!!
Heres the recipe:
5 medium apples
1 pkg (14 oz) KRAFT caramels
2 Tbsp water
5 wooden craft sticks
INSERT wooden pop sticks into stem end of each apple. Cover large plate with wax paper; grease with butter. Set aside.
PLACE caramels and water in large saucepan; cook on medium-low heat until caramels are completely melted, stirring constantly.
DIP apples into melted caramel until evenly coated, spooning caramel over apples in necessary. Allow excess caramel to drip off. Scrape bottoms of apples, then place on prepared plate. Refrigerate at least 1 hour (I didn't refrigerate, we just ate when cooled)or until ready to serve. Remove from refrigerator and let stand at room temp 15 min before serving.
Easy as that!!
I found this tutorial for no sew pumpkins here found on Thats so cuegly. Hers are a TON cuter than mine. I just used old clothes that someone gave us for my daughter, and it was not my style. So I made the pumpkins for free....but if I had my choice I would get some really cute fall fabric and fall leaves and make it look gorgeous like Thats so cuegly. You should check it out!
I had these old child socks that were in our DI bag and I thought maybe I could use them somehow....so I decided to take the old toilet paper rolls that I had on hand and slip a sock over the roll, and paint the eyes. Its as easy as that! I think it still needs a little something......
Wow, this is the cutest and easiest recipe!! It's great for Halloween! I found the recipe here. Enjoy!! (I didn't have white chocolate so I used butterscotch...just as yummy!)
Candy Corn Bark:
Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil and place a layer of milk chocolate (or white chocolate chips) and melt in a preheated oven at 250 degrees for 5 minutes. Spread melted chips in a smooth thin layer. Place in refrigerator for 20 minutes till chilled. Then add your next layer of white chocolate. Melt the chips in the microwave for 20 second intervals stirring the chips between each turn. Let cool till warm but still spreadable. Quickly spread over first layer. Add candy corn and sprinkles and place back in the refrigerator to chill. Once chilled break into bite size pieces. Store in a tupperware container and keep refrigerated to prevent melting.
I really needed a center piece for my table but I didn't want to spend any money. So I went out to my garden and picked some gourds and some corn stalks....voila you have my centerpiece! I put it all in my punch bowl/cake stand & on my orange tablecloth, I think it looks really festive & FREE!
I started my making a beanie. I cut a strip out of the scarf and sewed three edges. I then tied ribbon around two of the top edges and voila! Such a cute beanie out of an unused scarf! (I secured the ribbon on the beanie by stitching it into place)
Next I made baby legs. I just cut two strips out of the scarf and sewed down the edges. I kinda had to angle it to fit her legs, this scarf does not stretch very well....
Next I tried to make gloves for my baby out of gloves that I didn't use....but I wouldn't advise attempting this.....it DIDN'T turn out the way I wanted it to...I'll show you how I did it anyways....
And the finished products!....she didn't seem to mind! :)
I know some of you have all ready seen this coffee table remake of mine but I'm participating in 'I made it without my hubby' hosted by shanty 2 chic. We bought it from the DI for around $10 or $15 two years ago. I cant remember exactly how much. When we bought it it was this UGLY wood color so we decided to paint it brown. It was ok for a while but it was really really boring and also we painted it in a flat sheen (big mistake!) that made all the finger prints visible. During these last two years one of the legs came off and some of the wood started chipping so we thought that we were going to have to toss it. I never knew how much wood glue and wood filler would be my best friends!! It is definitely the work of an ameature and I hope that you will not investigate it too closly if you come to my house, I did the best I could! But, here is the new version.....
I made these pillows for my daughter's new room. I am still in the works for her new bedding, but I thought I would give you all a sneak peek at her new room. When I went to Joann's to buy the fabric, the lady at the counter asked what I was using the fabric for and I told her it was for my daughters room. She sounds appalled that I was using blue and green in a girls room....but I think it totally looks feminine! What do you think?! I'll post pix when we are done....but it will be a while!
I have been sooo excited this year for halloween! I can't wait to dress my little girl up! She is going to be a witch this year, I have all ready made her little tutu that she is going to wear and I found little spandex pants that have black, orange and purple stripes for her to wear. Now all I need to find is a witches hat and I need to make her cute little witches shoes...but, in the mean time I thought it would be cool to make her a spider beanie.....
this is the first beanie I have ever made, so DON'T make fun of me! And the spider didn't turn out like I had hoped but, at least it still looks like a spider, right?!
