Talk about last-minute! We have a huge fall festival in my neighborhood.. tomorrow.. with trunk-or-treat. So of course I started pulling together some ideas.. last night. And you’ll see the theme in all of these ideas is to use what you have. As Tim Gunn says, “Make it work!” (more…)

You Can Have A Candy-Free Halloween

Halloween candy - Candy-Free Halloween Options

I love Halloween, like really love it. It’s one of my favorite holidays, only a close second behind Christmas. But I also love my kids’ teeth and would rather not see them rot because of all the candy. And let’s face it, the brushing at this age is less than stellar, so those little pearls can use all the protection they can get.

The good news is, there are lots of other cool things you can give to your kids and give away to trick-or-treaters that aren’t loaded with sugar. (more…)

10 Favorite Painted Pumpkin Ideas

The thought of sticking my hand into the bowels of a pumpkin to pull out a pound of mushy, slimy, gooey pumpkin guts is not really appealing to me. Bravo to all of you who do it.

Mason Jar Mummies - 10 DIY Halloween Crafts & Costumes

Decorating for Halloween doesn’t have to be scary.. unless you want it to be.. bwahahahahahah. (Did that sound creepy in your head? It did in mine.)

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love fall weather, my birthday is in October, I love scary movies.. what’s not to love?! So I get excited when it’s time to indulge in candy, costumes and classic horror films. Exorcist is my all time favorite movie. What’s yours?

Another thing I love about Halloween is getting the kids involved in decorating. Partly because I want them to love it like I do, but also crafting and making it fun hopefully takes any of the creepiness out of it since they’re still a little young for really ghoulish stuff.

Here’s a few DIY projects inspired by Pinterest of course. You can check out my Frugal Florida Mom Pinterest DIY Halloween board for these ideas and a ton more. (more…)
