|DIY glitzy Halloween pumpkins|
Happy Halloween Eve! Is everyone excited for the big day tomorrow? T and I are hosting a small daytime Halloween gathering (might as well start early with the costumes and candy!), so I took off from work today to prep for that and to spend some quality time with his parents who are visiting from out of town. Here are the five (Halloween themed!) items I'm loving this week!
I'm giddy with excitement to reveal my Halloween costume (check our Instagram tomorrow!) but for now, all I'll say is that it meets my top 2 Halloween requirements: 1) it allows me to wear a wig, and 2) it has a store-bought base that I've been able to jazz up! Semi-homemade looks are always my favorite type of costume to put together since it's not like I'm ever going to be able to sew something from scratch, but I still like to customize my costume. Hands down, this DIY pageant girl costume is still my all-time favorite Halloween look (and I have the costume contest awards to prove it!).
Dog Halloween Costumes
Is there anything more adorable than a dog in a Halloween costume? M's dog Fred loves the spotlight (check out that camera-ready gaze), so of course we had to create a custom Queen Bee costume when she entered (and placed in) a dog Halloween costume contest. Does your pup get in on the holiday fun?
Candy Corn Bark
One of the great pains of adulthood is not being able to stuff your face with free candy on Halloween (well, unless you have a kid who is old enough to trick-or-treat but too young to actually eat all of the candy...in that case, congrats!). Want to recapture the post-trick-or-treating sugar high? Our Candy Corn Bark is the ultimate Halloween party sweet nibble.
For a slightly more subtle approach to the holiday, this Halloween manicure provides the perfect mix of glitz, textures, and the classic orange/black color scheme!
Halloween Hand Sanitizer Party Favor
After ringing lots of strange doorbells all day, you'll definitely want to keep those germs far away from your home. At your Halloween party, skip the extra sugar in favor of this unique, cute, and practical favor - a bottle of Halloween hand sanitizer adorned with a "Germs are scary" tag will never go to waste!
