Women of any age suffer from the dreaded whiskers. Grab her some electronic tweezers and this fun facial hair printable and gift her something useful.This post contains affiliate links. Just like any printable I offer on my site, this is for personal use only.
I don’t know a woman who doesn’t deal with whiskers or full-blown chin hair. If you don’t, then I don’t know what kind of witch-craft you’re doing but teach me your ways! It’s always a fun joke in our family and so one day at Ulta, I found this electronic tweezers that has six that spin around and grab them. It works awesome so I had to get my mom and sister-in-law one ASAP.I couldn’t just hand it over. That’s not my style. I had to make a cute little print to go with it. One of the witches faces even have two little whiskers on it. It’s only on one of the witches faces by mistake but it’s actually pretty cute so I’ll leave it to you to decide which one you want.
Easy enough, just print off the printable and cut it into the 4.25×5.5″ rectangle. Punch a hole in the corner and attach it to the box with some twine. I looped my twine a lot of times and so it looks like hair. Just a play on words. Give it to the hairy women in your life and laugh about it. There is always wax and someone is always coming up with great inventions like this to help women like us.
I love the thought of giving something like this for Halloween. Who knows, I may make one for men one of these days but I know hairy chins don’t bother them as much.
I love cashew chocolate clusters but it’s even easier in your Crock Pot. Make this delicious white chocolate cashew Halloween crock pot candy today!This post may contain affiliate links.
This recipe was so easy. We’ve all seen Crock Pot candy but this is a new twist on it. I’m so excited to be joining the ladies at Simple Simon for their Slow Cooker Spooktacular series. Head to the bottom of the post to find out how you can win one of your very own!Supplies
First, place your whole cashews in the Crock Pot. Then place the white almond bark on top. Then add your bag of white chocolate chips. Don’t stir just yet! Place your Crock Pot on low and cook it for about an hour. After an hour, go ahead and give it and stir. Some people will say to let it go for another hour but that burnt mine the first time. Just stir it until the chocolate is melted after that first initial hour and then scoop them.
Use an ice scream scoop or just two spoons and place it on some parchment paper to set.
While your chocolate is still warm, sprinkle your Halloween sprinkles on top. I created these fun candy boxes with my Cricut Maker and here is the link to the Design Space file if you want led to make your own on any Cricut. The paper is from My Minds Eye. My word of advice and something I learned the hard way ?, line your Crock Pot with some cling film or place something as a barrier if you have a hot spot. My hot spot is on one particular side about 2” up. I burned the candy that was in that area but I was also able to salvage a lot of it too.
This recipe can be customized for any holiday but Halloween is one of my favorites. It’s perfect as fall neighbor gifts or add Christmas sprinkles and pass them out then. Head here to Simple Simon to win your very own slow cooker. Good luck!
I love the time that leads up to Halloween. It’s so beautiful outside and the decorations have always been a favorite of mine. I’m going to show you how I styled these free Halloween printables.
As Halloween creeps closer, I just want all my decorations out. But then I think about how I have to just put them back in a few weeks and then put up the Christmas decorations. It’s so much work!These free Halloween printables are the perfect addition to any decor. There are spiders and insects to choose from. Just pop them in some easy frames and display. You won’t feel overwhelmed by the thought of these decorations.
I printed these off my HP printer at home and used 4×6″ photos. I sized them to fit as I printed them out so that it would cover the entire surface of your photo paper. I made these so that you can print them up to 8×10″ and have larger Halloween prints.I tell you, these are super easy to accomplish and you’ll feel 1000% better that you got something done. I know I do! Grab these free Halloween printables just using the links above. You can send them to the print shop if that’s easier but I find it a lot easier to use my HP Printer.

I love helping in my kids’ classrooms but I especially love class parties. Halloween is always one of the best and I’m always looking for an easy craft to make with all the kids. What more do kids need on Halloween than candy? More candy! Last year we made cotton ball ghosts and ran out of cotton balls. This year I want to be extra prepared so I got 200 suckers and 150 napkins to make sure I don’t run out of supplies. Do you think I’ll have enough? 😉
We’ve all seen those ghost suckers that are super easy but I wanted to add more characters. I decided on a witch and a bat. I’ve cut all the shapes out with my Cricut Maker but I’ve also included a template down below so that you can easily make them without an electronic cutting machine.
To begin, tie all the napkins around the suckers first and attach a twine string at the base of the sucker to hold it on.Next, draw some faces. I wanted to keep it simple so I just drew an open mouth and two small eyes on the ghost. With the witch I tried to attempt a nose with a wart. Just use a fine black pen for these images. For the bat I drew some fangs using a silver marker so it would show on the black napkin.You’ll now want to assemble your witch hat. If you’re hand cutting these, don’t worry about the middle area of the base of the hat. Just place some glue on the tab and roll your hat into a cone. Now adhere it to the base. If you have the tabs, just place glue on each one and fold it under the cone.For the bat wings, just place some hot glue on the edges of the wings and place them on the sides of the sucker.You can easily have the kids cut out the shapes but for a class of almost 30 students, cutting ahead of time is a lot easier for me. Or you could just trace them beforehand as well.That’s it, the easiest kids classroom Halloween craft using suckers and napkins. Make one or make them all! Happy Halloween!
I’ve created a few files for the different images for these bags and you can find the Design Space link at the bottom of the post. For Iron-On Vinyl, the main thing you want to remember is to mirror your image. That is where I make the most mistakes when I’m creating anything with Iron-On.
Cut out all your shapes using your Cricut or if you’re really adventurous, find an image online and cut it by hand. You’ll next want to peel away any of the negative space on your image. Leave what you want your image to look like on the carrier sheet for easy application. If you by chance accidentally peel away what you wanted you can try to either stick it back on the carrier sheet or you could just place it down on your material and then place the carrier sheet over it before pressing it.Next, warm up your iron or EasyPress. I have had a lot of issues with peeling when I’ve just used an iron in the past. It doesn’t quite do the trick and that is because it has an uneven heating surface. The EasyPress has by far been one of the best tools I’ve used and its small which makes storage a breeze. For the Lite Iron-On I used the press at 305° for 30 seconds. For the Glitter Iron-On I used it at 325° for 30 seconds. You’ll then want to lay down a towel that is folded in half. Lay your surface over the towel and use the EasyPress to warm up your canvas bags. Lay your image over the warm surface and place the EasyPress over it. Hold down the EasyPress with some pressure and press the green Cricut button to begin the countdown.Once your image has been pressed, go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet slowly. If you have any pieces that may have not stuck, just press them again. Voila! You’re done and your kiddos are going to love their own personalizes DIY Halloween Trick or Treat Bags.

I get to give away two Cricut Maker’s this week! To check out the first post, go here and for the second opportunity, don’t go away! This post is all about making homemade Halloween decor with your Cricut Maker and using pumpkins I got from Oriental Trading. These are super simple and can be customized to any colors of your choice.
Begin by painting your pumpkins. I just did random colors on random sizes with foam brushes.While they are drying, create your flowers and spikes in the Cricut Design Space files I linked to above. I used hot glue and glue dots to adhere to them each other. When cutting, use the intricate cut cardstock setting. This will double-cut the paper and give you a good crisp cut. Sometimes I did have it cut two times but this is when my mat was starting to lose its stick.When creating the stamens, you’ll begin by rolling the edge that doesn’t have the tab. Once you’re stamens are rolled, you’ll fold that tab under and secure it with some glue.I did about 3-4 layers of the green paint on all the pumpkins and I also painted the stems. Adhere the flowers and cactus arms with hot glue.For the spikes, cut your file on the holographic vinyl setting and just apply them randomly with your hands. No special tools needed for this easy pumpkin.These cactus pumpkins are perfect for Halloween and I love how colorful they are. Sometimes Halloween is too black and white so it’s nice to have a different color thrown into the mix.I’ve also teamed up with other bloggers to show what else you can make with your Cricut Maker and items from Oriental Trading. These two companies are a match made in heaven and the possibilities are endless.
My son is obsessed with Moana and Maui especially. Today I’m going to use my Cricut Maker to make a Disney Maui Halloween Costume. This should take a few hours to make but it’ll be well worth it in the end. This post is sponsored by Cricut and all opinions are my own.

For starters I began by uploading this image of Maui’s tattoos into Design Space. I really tried to make an svg in Illustrator but it would not trace well. I found the best way to do this was to upload the image directly to Design Space, using this method, and slicing the image. Cricut just started doing templates in Design Space again and I used it to size the separated images. Sometimes I would get a clean sliced image, when that happened I just added another Maui image and sliced off what I didn’t need. This was a labor of love. I wish I could just share the image after I took all that time to fix it but that is just not an option right now.The first part I worked on was the neck. I then placed a square or circle on separate parts of the image and would slice it. It took a lot of small adjustments but I eventually got there. The trick to slicing is to make sure that only two images are selected. If an image is grouped together, it won’t work. You’ll need to ungroup and detach any images so that only two images are selected, then select slice. You can delete any extras so that the images are all separated and you can size them on your templates.After I cut and weeded all of the black iron-on vinyl, I used my EasyPress to attach it to the onesie. Malakai has the perfect beige tone of skin so these ones I found on Amazon were perfect. They’re the perfect tone for this Maui Halloween Costume.I sized the leg tattoos to be about 4.5″ wide and placed the weeded image where I wanted it on the pants. I used the EasyPress at 305• and pressed it for 30 seconds. I then turned the pants over again so that it’d get heated from the opposite side. When using the EasyPress, you’re going to want to make sure that no vinyl comes in direct contact with the heated element. So when you have to overlap to get a good seal on an image, you’re going to want to make sure that the carrier sheet is covering all vinyl.Start with your shirt now. I began with the neck pieces so that it would line up with everything else. I then did the sleeves, back and then the chest last.Next, you’re going to want to cut the leaves with your Cricut Maker. You can use a Cricut Explore for this as well but your felt will need to be stiff, you’re also going to want to use a deep cut blade and a Strong Grip Mat. The new Cricut Felt is stiff and it’ll cut well on both machines. When using the Maker, use a pink mat and the rotary blade. The pink mat works best with the rotary blade, it’s formulated to Lee your rotary blade sharp. You can use other mats (which I have) but try to always use the pink mat with that blade.I grabbed this package of green felt from Benzie Designs and I love that it comes in different shades. I did use some embroidery floss to add some details to some of the leaves. The felt is soft so you’ll want to thread the leaves in and attach them to each other using some fabric glue. Aileens Fabric Fusion works great for this. The colors in her cactus pack are perfect for this Maui Halloween Costume.Some of the leaves I cut are not available in Design Space. I used a few from Lia Griffith and some from Amy Robison. Just click on their names and you can buy the shapes there. Lia has a membership site and I highly recommend it. She has some many svg’s that you can download on to Design Space and cut whichever ones you’d like. She also just has great printables that are all included in her membership fees too.
So in all honesty, this was a labor of love. It does take a lot of time and attention but I really love the outcome of this Maui Halloween Costume. He looks so cute and big. He’s only 20 lbs. and turns 2 on September 30. He’ll do anything to be big. He’s been around older kids so much that I don’t think he really knows how to act like a baby, except when he’s crying and rolling all over the floor. He’s such a fun kid to have around and I can’t wait until he figures out he can go door to door and get free candy.
