Hosting a ‘Ghouls Night Out’ and need a unique favor idea?  These witch shoe favors may be the perfect thing.  After all, ‘when the shoe fits…’  Notice the AR printable papers functioning as the shoe insole and the party circles as the toe embellishment.  Fill each shoe with a little paper shred & a cute bag of treats.

Project #14:  Altered Soda Bottle/Treat Favor

Project #15:  Halloween Treat Favor Bag

Create this cute little ‘tent’-style favor bag out of printable papers and embellishments.  Attach a cellophane bag of treats inside.

Project #16:  Halloween card

Use up some of the leftover printable scraps to create this simple Halloween card.  We used glue dots to add dimension to the pumpkin.

Project #17: Halloween Treat Tin (filled w/ mini candy bars covered in candy bar wrappers)

IKEA sells these ‘spice’ tins that can be used for so many additional purposes.  We decorated ours with Anders Ruff Halloween circle toppers & coordinating papers and filled it with mini candy bars wrapped in coordinating Halloween wrappers.

Project #18:  Halloween Paper Treat Sack (filled with white chocolate popcorn snack mix)

I love when I can use materials I have handy at home to create something new and fun! Sometimes a plain old paper sack is the perfect base for cute packaging.  Fill your paper bag with this yummy white chocolate popcorn snack mix, add some raffia, a tag and sticker label & you’ve got the perfect treat to share with family and friends.

Project #22:  3-D  Paper Pumpkins

25+ Spooktacular Halloween DIY Ideas via Kara's Party Ideas | KarasPartyIdeas.com #HalloweenParty #PartyIdeas #Supplies (13)

Looking for a project that’s easy enough even your kids can do it?  These 3-D pumpkins are made from strips of AR’s printable patterned papers, attached with brads at the top and bottom and dressed up with a handcut leaf, hang tag, raffia and twisted paperbag stem.  Create just one or make a whole bowl full for a centerpiece.  You can even insert a little bag of treats in the middle and give it as a gift.

Project #23:  Distressed Wood Blocks (‘TRICKS’)

Need a quick, easy and inexpensive Halloween item to add to your home decor?  Cut some wood blocks (or buy pre-cut & painted blocks).  Sand, paint and distress them.  Modge Podge or apply adhesive to the printable words included in AR’s Halloween set.

Projects 24-25:  Bootiful Halloween Apron & Chef Hat

25+ Spooktacular Halloween DIY Ideas via Kara's Party Ideas | KarasPartyIdeas.com #HalloweenParty #PartyIdeas #Supplies (6)

Our daughters absolutely loved the custom aprons and chef hats Vivian designed for them.  She searched for fabrics which matched AR’s collection and had the BOO circle graphic enlarged to print on fabric iron on transfers.  The girls had so much fun whipping up Halloween whoopie pies while wearing them.

Project #26:  Bewitching Glassine Dessert Bags

25+ Spooktacular Halloween DIY Ideas via Kara's Party Ideas | KarasPartyIdeas.com #HalloweenParty #PartyIdeas #Supplies (8)

‘BOO’tiful packaging doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming.  Print off AR’s 2″ labels onto sticker paper.  Punch out the designs and easily adhere to glassine bags.  We love putting individual servings of desserts inside (Halloween whoopie pies seen above, but cookies, brownies, pretzels, etc… could be substituted.)
