Handmade Halloween Happiness and More


With Halloween on my mind and a visit to see the granddaughters in a week (ages 3.5 and 1), I made some crafty time to work on some projects for them. 

First is this T-shirt.  It looks so little!  I used Cricut Metallic Mosaic to make the jack-o-lantern, and let me tell you, you have to be very meticulous when peeling because this type of iron-on has two top layers, and for my tired eyes, the second one is difficult to see.  The design came from Cricut Design Space with my Cricut Access subscription.

I also made this treat box.  The treat box is not my design.  It was designed by The Bearded Housewife, It's the perfect size for toddlers!

I'm also already working on Christmas crafts.  This year, I've decided to make some cute drawstring bags for Christmas gift wrapping.  To make enough, I have to start now. This is some dark fabric with vintage holiday ornaments on it and a green drawstring made from grosgrain ribbon.  The fabric is from JoAnn.  Here is an easy-to-follow video on YouTube in case you decide to whip up some drawstring bags.
I also made this peppermint fabric bag (also from JoAnn) with bias tape for the drawstring.

Have a happy homemade week!

  1. Adorable Halloween & Christmas crafts! I have already started on my Christmas crafting as well, & I along with a group of fellow bloggers will begin our Christmas decorating videos, with some Christmas crafts sprinkled in each week, on November 1, every weekday until Christmas! A lot of other bloggers have already begun their Christmas decorating. I'm going to be in fever pitch ripping down Halloween decorations after the trick or treaters leave that night! As bloggers we have to start so early, don't we, since by Christmas time, it's too late to influence or give ideas to others as they are already decorating on their own. Good luck over the next few months as we begin our fever pitch blogging & vlogging! Thanks for sharing on Happiness is Homemade!
