Cupcake Costume

Hey cupcake! Today we’re sharing another sweet little Halloween costume with you. Fergi came up with this really clever way to get the shape with hula hoops! She is a genius. I love how the person wearing it can squat down and they “turn into” the cupcake. Get all the details below and find ALL of our Halloween costumes right here.

Pom Pom Bat Cupcake Toppers DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

I know, I know – normally you’re aiming for ‘spooky’ or ‘scary’ when it comes to Halloween decorations. But if you’re looking for something a little, well, cuter – then look no further. These bat toppers are just so cute!  A few black pom poms, paper and toothpicks and you’re all set. Bonus points for using a craft punch that usually only sees action during the winter holidays!

Party Clock Invitation DIY

by Sally J Shim

I love a good pun and this Party Clock Invitation DIY will let the recipient know it is time for a fun celebration. You can customize the text on the invitation to reflect the type of party you are throwing, whether it is a birthday party, housewarming party, or baby shower. Try cutting a circle from patterned paper if you want a bit more pattern and color on your invitation. If there are important details that will not fit on the front of the invitation, print it on the back of the invitation.

Nesting Doll Costume

This costume is one of my favorites. When I was a little girl I would play with Russian Nesting Dolls for hours. This costume gets even better if you have several girls in different sizes- ha! Don’t forget to add those bright circles on your cheeks as a finishing touch!
