My Favorite Things: Halloween Edition

It is so hard to believe that Halloween is just around the corner. At work, Halloween is usually very uneventful, but this year Heather and I have a Halloween work project! To support a local school and charity, we are decorating a hay bale and participating in a Halloween carnival. I will share details about the hay bale later, but I could not resist sharing our latest craft idea with you. Heather brought this idea to the table to help spice up our trick-or-treat station at the Halloween carnival-we are making a Halloween Treat Tree!

Woman's Day (on-line) has an easy tutorial to help you make your very own Halloween Treat Tree. You can find the DIY instructions here. The Halloween Treat Tree is a cute, simple, and cheap Halloween decoration or can even serve as a Halloween centerpiece.


Heather and I are straying from the instructions just a little. Our tree will be a good bit bigger. We are also using small paper treat bags tied with orange ribbon instead of using the cloth sacks shown above. The kids will be able to pick their Halloween treat right off the tree! I will post pictures as soon as our project is complete, and I hope that you will share your pictures with me if you decide to make this adorable Halloween craft!

I love this idea. I might have to plan a Halloween party for Ellie and her friends next year just so I can make this a centerpiece. :) XOXO

This looks like so much fun, and we could do those just for a cute decoration at your house especially for a get-together or something.
