Happy Birthday Maddox!
To create this haunted look, I tried to recycle as much as I could. I used an old fabric as a curtain and nailed it to the window, cut some paper bats from poster boards and hung it from the ceiling with some fishing line. I also used a chalkboard paper runner that I found at Target and I think it turned out pretty cute and cheap. What do you think?
I have no sewing background but I do own a sewing machine. I usually sew paper when I’m making invitations but once in a while I try fabric and lots of glue!

4 days until Halloween,and it’s crunch time at our house. Today we made this cute Mummy juice boxes for the party.
Things you need:
Eye balls (we found ours at Michael’s)
White crepe paper roll
Take straws off each juice box.
Wrap white paper around the juice and glue the end.
Last year my sister-in-law bought these treats from a Harvest Festival and this year
we decided to make a craft-playdate with the kiddos.
Things you need:
Brownie mix (follow recipe)
White yogurt covered pretzels
Food markers (we bought ours at Michael’s)
Cut brownies in square.
Place the lollipop stick in the middle of brownie to hold together the skeleton.
Use the white yogurt pretzels as the skeleton bones.
Place the marshmallow on top for the head.
Use the food markers to make the face of the skeleton.
Halloween is around the corner and of course we are obsessing about costumes… but when you have your 4 year old daughter make the final executive decision, it gets a little complicated! It changed from being Elsa, to being a llama, to Katie Perry in the “Roar video”. Even though Katy Perry would have been so funny specially because she wanted her little sister to be the tiger from the music video. I finally got my way because we are going to be a fox family.” Yay!!
The inspiration is the Fantastic Mr. Fox. I wish I could do a full-on mask but I’m afraid Arden (9 months old) would be too scared, so I found this cute mask tutorial from Handmade Charlotte.
