DIY Halloween.

Ever since I could remember Halloween has been my favorite holiday. I love the cool air, the leaves falling. I love dressing up, and I loved trick or treating with my friends and little sister. The day after Halloween it was tradition for my sister and I to sit down watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and eat our candy. I miss those days!

As I got older Costumes got more expensive and got a little more scandalous. So Brandon and I started to make our own. We usually just pull things from our closet and make it work. For example last year I was Cruella De Ville.

Your closet is the best place to search for a costume. Find a picture of what you want to be to use as a reference. So being Cruella I grabbed an animal print dress, yellow coat, and black and white sunglasses. My best costumes have been costumes I made or created myself.

To get us in the Halloween spirit we love putting together little treat bags for the nieces and nephews, and get Aria some little Halloween toys and books. It doesn't cost a lot of money and it gets the kids a jump start on their trick or treating. I love including flashlights or glow sticks. It helps keep the kids safe when running around in the dark.

-Treat Bags
-Candy from the Hershey'sVariety Pack (the pumpkin one has the best candy)
-Flashlight or Glow sticks

Grab your treat bags.

Grab a few different pieces of candy and load them in the bag. The huge bags of candy they sale at Walmart are perfect for these treat bags. You then have more than enough to spare for the trick or treaters that come to your door.

If you are using flashlights make sure to load up the batteries and make sure they work and add them to the bag. I went with glow sticks this year.

Twist or seal the top with a cute ribbon or tie.
