$28 for a set of 25
Yeah, I don’t need 25. Maybe for a birthday party… I just need 2 for right now. So off to the Ol’ Dollar Tree for 2 plastic placemats and I already had some chalkboard spray paint. You can pick a can up at craft stores, Wal-Mart and Amazon.
I actually had these placemats on hand. You can pick them up at yard sales, Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart, Target, and Amazon. You could have some on hand from when your kids were toddlers. I had a Dora and Princess one.
$3-$5 can of chalkboard spray paint (don’t forget to use a coupon at the craft stores)
Chalkboard placemat DIY
I used chalkboard paint on the bottom one with a sponge paintbrush. Spray paint works better. Two coats on a plastic placemat and Bam! instant doodle pad.
Recently did the printable’s for a little girls, Sweet Shoppe party. It was like a walk down Candyland.
You can find a lot of the Candy inspired decor at Hobby Lobby right now in the Christmas section.
The cake was ordered from Kroger and all we did was ask the decorator to make the icing pink with peppermint design on the top.
Multicolored cupcakes from the grocery store and our custom made cupcake toppers were a hit.
Visit our Etsy page for a custom order.
Put an assortment of different candy in a variety of containers on a table for the candy buffet. The purple candy is a plate wrapped inside basket wrap that you can get a craft store.
Pink candy is the same with a plate and basket wrap.
The more children you invite, the more candy you will need.
I love country wedding decor. These are from a recent wedding that I wanted to share. The cupcake holder the venue had = too cute. It had a small cake on one tier and mini cupcakes on the others. Decor around the location included mason jars with roses, baby breath and ribbon. This would also be great at a bridal shower.
Handmade photo board with jute and clothespins to hold the couple’s engagement photos.
A.C.Moore has a lot of burlap and country inspired wedding decor.
Minions are super popular right now. What’s not to love about these little guys. I recently came across a cute craft while creating Halloween pom pom pencils.
I bought these pom poms at Hobby Lobby for $2.99 but with a 40% off coupon.
One of my daughter’s friends was over while I was making the Halloween pom pom pencil and was playing with these pom poms. He asked if I could make him a Minion pom pom. The light bulb went off and BAM …
You will need yellow and blue pom poms, googly eyes, glue, and a sharpie.
Kids can put these together during a Minion party. I made medium and large minions. I used hot glue for mine, but for the kids, just school glue would work.
These are at Target in the Halloween section right now. If you are planning a party soon, make sure to snatch them up.
Betty Crocker has Minion fruit snacks that would make a great treat bag filler.
Can give out Minion Cheese Nips or put in treat bags.
Minion Tic Tacs would be great in treat bags! These are too cute.
We make custom cupcake toppers at our Etsy site.
While Sierra and I were out shopping one night, we came across cute googly eye pencil monsters at Target. They were in the Dollar Spot section. Not a bad deal, but when you have several kids you would like to give them to for Halloween – it adds up.
These cuties were my inspiration.
I got these pom poms at Hobby Lobby for $2.99, but with a 40% off coupon.
It came with different sizes. The large and medium worked great for this project. I will keep the really small ones for a class project this winter.
$1 pencil packs from Dollar Tree.
I hot glued the googly eyes on first. Then hot glued the pom pom onto the pencil. My youngest daughter asked about using the eraser. I hot glued one pom pom monster onto an eraser cap for her pencil. That way she can take the cap off and use the eraser underneath.
On a few of them, I twisted a pipe cleaner around the pencil. I already had pipe cleaners on hand and googly eyes. Both can be bought at craft stores and Dollar Tree.
They are cute!
I made 24 pencils for $4-5. Even if I did not have the supplies on hand, it would only have been $6-8. If you only need 1-6, buy them at Target, need more = make them.
If you’re looking to make any Minion things for Halloween or for Halloween treats- I created this fun free printable. You can use a hole puncher and tie to a treat bag or to these cute candies I found at Target.
If you know you are having a minion birthday party within the next year, pick up these candies.
They also have minion fruit snacks.
Minion Cheese Nips for Halloween school bags
Minion Tic Tacs for Teacher gifts.
Halloween is so near! Because it is one of my favorite holidays, and it kicks off the holiday season, I made some Free Halloween printables to share. Below I bought this sign from Kirkland’s, that I love, so I had to make a copycat – so I can share with my friends. Happy Halloween!
One of the things I love in the south is the beautiful summer nights we have. We decided this year to have our summer party as a glow party to capture the best part of the day, the evening. We wired mason jars to the trees, we had tiki torches, and simple paper lunch bags with candles and mother nature provided us with tons of fireflies. We, of course, picked up tons of glow stick products and some glow balloons, that the kids loved. To hang our mason jars, we used florist wire and wrapped around the rim of the jar, and used the wire to go around the branches. We used battery operated tea light candles.
You can pick up a bag of paper lunch bags at Dollar Tree and fill with kitty litter or sand and place your candle inside. So simple, and so pretty.
We also created a nice centerpiece with an old brass chandelier. We took the bulbs out and replaced with solar lights.
These are the kind that you can buy for your lawn or garden. Just take the stake out. We used aluminum foil to keep the solar light in place. You can find old chandeliers at yard sales, thrift stores, and antique stores.
You can pick up glow sticks at Dollar Tree. They have a large variety.
You cannot have a night party without making Smore’s.
The glow balloons I found at Hobby Lobby, and the kids loved them.
