Day 9: Mummy Candy Wrapper DIY

Day 9: Mummy Candy Wrapper DIY

Halloween is just over 2 weeks away, so I guess it’s ok to buy some candy now. It’s a little dangerous if we buy candy too soon in our home… because we’ll just eat it all (especially peanut butter cups, yum). I made these mummy candies last year and they were a hit with the trick or treaters. Just a little something extra fun for the kids that come by.

What you need for this project:

  • Some mini candies (I used little Hershey candies, but you can use any rectangle candy)
  • little eyeballs
  • crepe paper
  • hot glue
  • scissors

To check out the full tutorial, head on over to the original post!

Day 8: Printable Paper Sack Gift Bags

Day 8: Printable Paper Sack Gift Bags

I really love this creation. Printing on things that aren’t normally a printable item: awesome. I love it. These bags are the perfect lazy-person gift wrap. I LOVE a pretty wrapping paper (so much), but sometimes I just want something quick for gifts. These would be the perfect transport for a holiday treat for your neighbor, or why not wrap a Christmas gift in this bag? I would.

Supplies:

Directions:

Printable Paper Sack Gift Bags

STEP 1:

Use the painter’s tape to attach the top and bottom of one paper lunch bag to the center of the printer paper. You can measure the center of the printer paper, or just eye-it.

STEP 2:

Place the printer paper/lunch bag combo into the printer paper tray and print the image onto the paper bag.

Tip: if you’re careful removing the tape from the bag, you can reuse the tape and printer paper for multiple bag prints.

STEP 3:

Put your gift or treat into the bag, add a bit of pretty washi tape to seal it, and you have a pretty packaged gift.

Cost: 

About $6 for a pack of paper bags and washi tape.

Day 7: Vinyl Leaf Placemat DIY and Pattern

The blog has been a bit Halloween-crazy this last week, so I thought I’d take a break and share a Fall themed creation: The Vinyl Leaf Placemat DIY (first shared on the HP Create blog). I made these from vinyl so they are easy to wipe off after a meal, but you can make it out of whatever non-fray material you’d like (I do suggest materials that are easy to clean). These would be very cute if you cut them out if brown paper, then recycle after your meal!

When I made these I imagined them being used for your Thanksgiving meal, but these placemats would be perfect for any Fall gathering you have. Make them out of a green colored material and use them for a Spring gathering! I created a leaf pattern to make your own mats. You can find the complete DIY over on the HP Create blog.

Day 6: Spooky Tin Can Lantern DIY

Another item I can check off my to-try list: can lights! I made this Spooky Tin Can Lantern a couple weeks ago (for the HP Create blog) and they are the perfect decorations to line my walkway this Halloween. This is a SUPER inexpensive project to create, plus you get to eat whatever food is in the can before you make this project! Yay!

I made three patterns that can be downloaded off the original post: a ghost, kitty, and pumpkin face. You can find the complete tutorial on the HP Create blog right here.
