Hallowe’en Eyeball Wreath

Finally, the best time of the year has almost arrived. What could be more appropriate at Hallowe’en than an eyeball wreath? This is an extremely simple project with very few items required.

Halloween Décor & Glittered Pumpkins

I love the Fall – and the awesome holidays that come with the cooling temperatures. Back in the day, my mother used to throw Halloween parties for the neighbourhood kids where we traipsed through cardboard mazes, stuck our fingers in bowls of witches’ eyeballs and monster brains, and of course there was the food. My dad worked a lot, so having him come home early to help us carve the pumpkin was always really special – and family pumpkin carving is a ritual my husband and I continue with our boys.

I’m not ready to host the neighbourhood yet…but I have come across some pretty awesome food and décor ideas online that I can’t wait to try out in a year or two. Here are a few project ideas to check out if you’re planning a Halloween bash for your little ghouls this year – and one project I just couldn’t pass up trying (with my own spin of course!).

Peacock Costume for dreamy girls

This was the first year (in four years) that my daughter didn’t ask to be a princess. Where did her mind go next? A peacock of course! Challenge accepted. The problem: Design a costume that allows the flexibility to sit down all day in class, play freely at recess and be warm enough for night time trick-or-treating. The solution: Design tights and a body suit that allowed for another layer underneath, create a hood on the body suit for extra warmth.
