Halloween Witch Hat Cookies

I’m off my game (again!) I’m always ready for Halloween in August and then I blink and it’s October 20th. My kid doesn’t even have a costume! For the record she’s going to be a bat and the fabric is somewhere on my kitchen table. I was feeling like a Halloween failure so I put on Hocus Pocus and got to baking. You’ve probably made a version of these cookies, I’ve seen them called peanut butter blossoms but growing up we called them the kiss cookies.

Spooky Halloween Ghost DIY

If I told you I didn’t have Halloween decorations in mind when I designed and built the chicken run I’d be lying. It was barely done before I strung it up with with twinkle lights. I considered putting my giant spider webs down there but considering how often the geese go barreling though where they are in front I didn’t think they’d last long that close to the barn (the geese are no longer cute and tiny). I needed a new idea and it just so happens that a few years ago I saw a few pictures of ring-around-the-rosy style ghosts and fell in love. I wanted to do something like that but I wasn’t sure where or how. After we finished the run the where became pretty apparent but the how was still eluding me.

Wicked Wisteria Halloween Wreath

I’m fighting another allergy/head cold attack and I found day-time cold medicine to be oddly motivational. I didn’t have the wherewithal to make step by step tutorial for this one but I’ll walk you through it. Someday I might even figure out how to make a video and put together a start-to-finish of my creative fiddling. I think the drooping flowers and cheeky crows are perfect for Halloween but the muted purple and cream flowers would be a perfect for the rest of fall as well.

Halloween is tomorrow and I’m still sewing away at Mary’s costume. This little hedgehog WILL have a full head of spikes when we head out to hand out our last minute baby footprint Halloween cards.

As with most things in my life I planned this out… 2 months ago? And here we are painting a teething baby with candy corn feet while I fight off a head cold and Mike recovers from the 16 pounds of sugar in his birthday cake (I made him a Recess Peanut butter cake and I don’t eat PB and chocolate together so he gets to eat the whole thing).

Turn Dollar Store Candy Bags into a cute and quick Halloween Banner
I told my sister (the magpie and recipient of the glittery witch wreath that I’m STILL sweeping up after)  about this project and said it was so easy even she could dot it. She cam back with “that’s going on your blog isn’t it? So easy I can do it?”. Well Amber, here it is! The Halloween Banner that’s So Easy My Sister Can Do It!
