On Wednesday we shared our favorite Halloween treats and healthy meals — but Halloween doesn't just mean good food. It also means festive costumes and decorations. Here are some of our Sparkly and not-so-spooky ideas.
Pillowcase Cross-Body Trick-or-Treat Bag
This bag is perfect for any age of trick-or-treater. It's customizable and comfy and can be used all month long for creative play.
No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas
This a great idea for little ones who haven't yet developed knife skills. It also allows the pumpkins to stay fresh much longer than carved ones as the skins of these pumpkins stay intact.
This is so quick and easy to make -- perfect for last-minute costumes that can become play pieces all year long.
Mixed Media Flash Lights
These flashlights are exactly what your little (or not so little) ones need to light up the lengthening nights. It's a great way to ward off the spooky things on Halloween, too.
Recycled Paper Mache Scarecrow
Are these paper mache scarecrows not the cutest things? This a perfect get-messy-and-use-up-the-Sunday-paper project.
Keepsake "Switch Witch" Plate
This year if all that candy feels like too much in the days after Halloween, present your kids with the option of giving their candy to the Switch Witch.
November 1 is Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. It may sound spooky, but it's a day of celebration and festivity. Decorate your home to remember loved ones who have passed with these beautiful marigold garlands.
Quick, Low-Sew Wings
These wings are perfect anytime of year, but work as a fabulous last minute costume.
Waxed Leaf Banner
With autumn in full swing, this leaf banner is a great way to preserve a bit of the season and decorate your home with something that will last all season.
