by Chiara Alberetti Milott

How do you make a Halloween treat even better? By disguising it as a bat. It’s like a costume for candy! I used candy I put in cellophane bags, but save yourself some time and use some pre-packaged, bite-size treats. (PS – More Halloween ideas here!)

Crepe Paper Butterflies DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

What could be prettier than brightly colored butterflies fluttering around your cake? The trick to these easy-to-make butterflies is in the shape of the paper – basically a diamond on top of a square. Usually used to make gorgeous paper flowers (see here, here and here), the natural grains of the crepe paper lend themselves perfectly to the creation of these butterflies.
