Easy Batty Hairpins at A Nest for All Seasons

You all know how much I love quirky things - from skull and spider earrings, to animal tees and the like. Today, I shared how to make these super duper easy golden and silver bat hairpins over at A Nest for All Seasons.


You can make a ton of them for literally just pennies. I made two sets using different kinds of bats found in the local Target or Dollar Tree. And I actually am still undecided on which I like more...


Anyway, don't forget to check that out by clicking any of the photos above or the link below!

DIY: Gravestone Treat Bags with Free Cut File

Yay! I finally remembered to participate in another round of the Silhouette Challenge! *applause sounds* I love making my own cut files for my trusty Silhouette machine. This time around I made tiny gravestone treat bags to match my Halloween candy baskets I shared the other day. I'm just so into making gravestone stuff these days - but I'm itching to make another skull something!

I seriously love how it turned out! It's small enough to fit 3-5 mini KitKat bars, or whatever else you want to put. Fill them halfway with shredded paper so you put less candy - and have more for yourself make kids healthier!


It has holes for either side so you can add a cardstock handle (provided in the cut file) or make your own with ribbon. It's definitely compatible for Silhouette Portrait use - so don't hesitate to download it and make one (or more)!

To scale, this is how mine looks like - no, those aren't my hands, they are my sister's. :) I'm so ready to throw a Halloween party and employ these babies along with my Halloween candy baskets which I might add green moss on top to, just so it looks more graveyardish!
