My thoughts on Halloween this year? Bring on Christmas!! I had an entire list of projects I wanted to make for myself, but professionally, I've been buried under Halloween for weeks now. So in my down time, I've been making Christmas ornaments. That's how it goes sometimes.
All is not lost. I've tacked up a couple of decorations and we'll carve the pumpkins tonight. But today I'm focused on details, a few Halloween surprises just for my son - his lunchbox will be anything but boring tomorrow! I have 24 hours, but that's enough time to pull together some last-minute fun.
Perhaps you're in the same boat, so here are some of my favorite easy, last-minute ideas pulled from my Pinterest board.
These make me laugh, and my son might just find one perching on his bowl of oatmeal tomorrow morning. From Family Chic.
Take this downloadable template and basic craft supplies and you have instant fun! Check out Mr. Printables for these typography glasses, as well as other easy projects, like the printable candle wraps.
Being mom to a boy, there's a lot of talk about bugs around here. I love any bug that's not real, so these DIY hand-painted insect plates from HGTV fit the bill.
If you'd rather make cupcakes, these vampire bite cupcakes can be pulled off by even the most time and craft-challenged among us.
Who needs carving with the whimsical simplicity of these bat pumpkins?
Easy, cute bat napkin rings made from nothing more than black construction paper.
Last, but certainly not least, I love these printables from Creature Comforts. Kids will get a kick out of them, but they're sophisticated enough to entice the grown-ups.
