Happy Halloween

Hooray it's Monday and hooray it's Halloween this weekend!

Today we'll turn some of these cosmetic boxes from blah to...

Tada! All we did was wrap the boxes
in felt (attached using a glue gun).

Then decorated the front with Halloween characters
also made out of felt.

Fill these with sweets to hand out to trick or treaters or use them as party favors for your Hallow's Eve bash.

The Halloween struck home with me as I have 3 small children and so did the Christmas ones Im always looking for new ideas and now I can save some supplies way ahead rather than wait last minute. hope you had a great holiday season and all the best in the new year!!!
