There is still time to make this your craftiest, spookiest, most delightful Halloween yet! Here are some quick, simple, MUST do ideas for that extra special spooky touch on your holidays this year.

       Using your Halloween cookie-cutter, press into the tortillas to make your shaped chips.
       Place the chips in a single layer on your baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the chips are crisp and light-golden brown (corn tortillas will only take 6 - 8 minutes). Flip the chips over halfway through the baking time.
       When baking your chips for the first time, keep a careful eye on them after the first 8 minutes
            *** side note.. instead of throwing away the excess tortilla from the cutouts, get out some hummus & have a snack! :)

Cut 45-50 16″ pieces of ribbon.
Tie one strand of ribbon in a knot around the wreath — right over left, then right over left again, pulling in the opposite direction. It doesn’t really matter how you do it as long as you are consistent all the way around.
Repeat with the knots, pushing them close together, until you fill the wreath.
Cut one long piece of ribbon (48″) and tie one end to form a knot. Leave a long loop for hanging and tie another knot onto the wreath.
Trim any frayed or long ends.


This halloween banner is perfect for a modern halloween look. These can also be used for different holidays, in different colors too!
Cut trim to the length you prefer (ribbon would work as well).
Cut out as many triangles as you want to hang from linen fabric.
Simply glue the cut outs to the underside of the trim & hang!

Grab a favorite lollipop.
Twist pipe cleaners around to form spider legs.
Attach googly eyes with glue for an added spooky touch!

    First download a template of a bat shape you like.
   Use black cardstock or construction paper. I found this packet of all-black cardstock (50 sheets at Walmart for $4.
    Print the bat image and cut it out.
    Fold the paper in half and lay the bats on top, lined-up with the fold.
   Cut out your bats! Don’t bother with tracing. Just hold the pattern on there as you cut-- doesn’t need to be exact.
   Arrange them in any fashion you like!

Whether it be you're preparing for the halloween bash of the decade, or you simply just want to make your home feel more festive for the holidays, these ideas will surely make all your spooooooky halloween wishes come true :)
