I am so glad you’re here to join us for the 398th Happiness is Homemade link party! I’m Niki, from Life as a LEO Wife, and I’m so enjoying visiting everyone’s wonderful posts that have been linked up during the month of October. You’re all still killing it with these awesome posts you’ve shared! Before we get to the party, let’s take a look at what’s gone on this week on the blog.
You probably remember the Beetlejuice free printables that I shared last week. This week I shared with everyone how our family movie nights go down and some really fun ideas for Halloween themed food, games, and activities that you can do on your own movie nights or even use for a Halloween party!
Last year I made an adorable fall/Halloween centerpiece, and I finally got around to sharing that tutorial with you! You just need two Dollar Tree pumpkin wreath forms and some fall or Halloween decor. You’ll have a piece you can leave out from September through the end of November!
Finally I made these adorable braided yarn pumpkins. They’re pretty simple to make, and they look so plush in a fall vignette!
On to the Party!
I thought I’d get a few non-Halloween features in this week, and one is this post by Krafty Planner. In it, she gives us 7 tips to practice an attitude of gratitude. With Thanksgiving coming up next month (in the US) and the state of the world, we can forget all of the good that we still have. I did a month long devotional on this topic a few months ago, and practicing gratitude can truly change your entire day.
Along the same lines of that is these adorable worry jars by Must Have Mom. They are too cute. Little ones are affected by external forces just as much as we are, if not more. With this idea, your child can write down their worries and let them go, as the put the paper in the jar. I like her idea of making this a cares jar and giving them all to God.
Ok, now back to Halloween! These felt flags by She’s Crafty Crafty are so cute. I have a ton of felt with nothing to do with it. Much of the sheets are fall colors, so this is the perfect project to use them up. She mentioned how cute these would be in the hands of a toddler in a wagon going trick or treating. I agree!
Lisa over at Fresh Vintage by Lisa S created these adorable printables to add to a bottle for a quick and easy Halloween decor piece. It looks perfect on her brown bottle. Who doesn’t want to upcycle something you’d throw in the trash into beautiful decor?!
Y’all this next post is unbelievable. I found it and asked her to submit it to Happiness is Homemade. Linda from Life and Linda created this Hallow-queens tablescape, and it’s gorgeous! Who wouldn’t die to be at this Halloween party?! Get it?
