halloween tinker bell!

My daughter decided she wanted to be tinkerbell for our halloween party this year so I went in search of making her costume. I didnt want just a tutu and saw a really cute tutu dress on ETSY then spent the next 3 days searching the internet for a tutu dress tutorial... no luck, its like its a screat or something so I just winged it and was impressed how fast and easy it came out!These pictures show it before I cut it up to her knees cause she said it was to long to tink.

It was so fast and so easy that I ran back to the fabric store and bought tons more tulle and now have a whole princess collection, which I will post a tutorial to later. In the mean time I think I will try my hand at the etsy world because my friends are all gushing over the dresses..... if only they knew how easy it was ;) hope you have a safe and happy halloween I will post the costumes Im making for my boys soon... only so much time lol... oh and for my next trick im trying out Oreo cookie suckers... wish me luck!

halloween party prep!

So I have been so busy planning our yearly halloween party I think there might actually be a layer of dust on my sewing machine. But I just thought I would show off some of my fun ideas for this years bash

Here is what my TV room ceiling looks like. Its all done out of streamers and took about an hour to hang, but it looks freaking awesome (my son thinks he wants a spider man party now)

And I then had to do it for the dinning room but ran out of black streamer (has did all the local stores, who knew)

I made a super awesome coffin which im going to fill with prizes and spaghetti noodles (kinda like a pinyata cause only one kid got to hit it last year, this way every one gets a fair turn) It was really easy Quick coffin tutorial: I got a $8 piece of insulation foam board 8x4 at home depote, made a coffin shape and cut it out, then I used a screw driver to make the board line and a brown crayon to make the wood grain then water brushed over with brown paint and there we go, a wonderfull sppoky coffin. Im going to cut hole in the sides for the kids to stick their hands in.

A local flower shop has kid project days and the three older ones made these for the front porch
