Dinosaur Party Invitations

by Kathleen Ballos

Have you heard of Dinovember? I love how playful and creative you can get posing toy dinosaurs – I thought it would be a fun excuse to hold a dinosaur party! Make these paper mache dino egg invitations to get the party started. At the party, have your guests take part in a dinosaur posing competition – I’m sure the results will be hilarious!

Haunted Village Surprise

by Kathleen Ballos

Are you hosting a Halloween party this year? Make this miniature haunted village as decor but also a surprise way to hide candy! Arrange the paper houses on a window sill, tray, or tabletop and when someone wins a game let them pick a house to reveal their prize. P.S. Another fun way to include a haunted house at your party!

Bat Candy Favors DIY

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!)
