Yes, I know this post is three days late and I'm so sorry! Unreliable wifi, last minute GMAT prep, work, and tonight's episode of Scandal have really taken me away from the blog this week. But, I'm bringing you a sweet treat in return! DIY Halloween Goodies!!
If you can't tell by now, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Back in college, I would scrape up whatever little money I had left to put together a box of goodie bags filled with cookies, candy and trinkets for my family. I'd find stuff in the dollar section at Target or in the seasonal section at Wal-Mart. But my favorite place to grab cheap stuff is definitely Dollar Tree. Mainly because everything is a dollar!!!
I was a little late grabbing my stuff this year to make goodie bags, so I had to pick through the leftovers. It was no joke this year. There was only one aisle left of Halloween goods and the rest of the seasonal section was already covered in Christmas items! For more on how I feel about that, click here. I did the best with the leftovers I had to create some awesome goodies.
I picked up the last two packs of these awesome Halloween tumblers (4 pack for $1) along with about five+ bags of candy, two packs of the bendy skull straws, and festive socks all for about $15. I fund the pumpkin goodie bags at Wal-Mart for $1.27. Twenty came in a pack with twist ties.
I've never used cups before so I was really excited to incorporate them into my treats this year. I put the assorted candies in the pumpkin goodie bag, the goodie bag in the cup, and added in the festive socks and bendy skull straw.
Holiday goodie bags are great for any holiday and ship pretty easily. You can put practically any and everything in your goodie bags. Try to add something sentimental, quirky or thoughtful in it and send it out to friends and families! I sent some out on Tuesday to family and friends and they're already enjoying them!!
How do you get crafty when it comes to holidays?
