DIY Ghost Banner

I seriously LOVE October, November, and December. They are my ULTIMATE fav! It’s probably because it’s not so flipping hot, AND my three favorite holidays are Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

So today I’m excited to share with ya’ll this super cute ghost banner, made in this year’s Halloween color palette (I’m very nontraditional when it comes to color): melon, coral, peach, citrine, and yellow.

Witch’s Hat With a Spooky Scene Inside

Hello, Silhouette friends! My name is Jennifer, and I am the owner and creative director behind The Craft Patch—a craft and DIY blog. Halloween is such a fun holiday, but I like decorations that are cute, not creepy. A few nights ago, I woke up in the middle of the night with a craft idea… what if you combined a fairy garden and a witches hat?  It’s not the first time a project idea has struck me in the middle of the night. As soon as I woke up in the morning, I got to work. The hat is see-through, and…

Candy Tummy Bats

When I think of Halloween, I think of CANDY! My absolute favorite candy is, well, anything chocolate. I love to think of new and unique ideas to hand out candy every year. This year, my little one started in kindergarten, so of course, we had to make the candy class friendly too. I wanted something that was not only cute but also fillable so that I could fill it with different types of candy and add a name to it as well. Once I knew what I wanted to make, I found the most adorable bat design. These batty treat…
