Happiness is Homemade #449

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! Linda from A Labour of Life will be choosing our features for the month of October. Before we get to this week’s features, let’s check out what’s been going on here on the blog over the past few days. Be sure to head over and link up on Crafty Creators and You’re the Star Blog Hop before you go! If you missed last week’s party, you can check it out here. Remember to comment on You’re the Star Blog Hop for your chance to be featured on that party! I do not choose my features from last month’s party because I feel like it’s too far back. For example, I don’t want to choose a Halloween post in November lol! I will only visit those posts in the comments on that party because I have two others. I really want to choose from a wider range of blogs, so head over & comment now!

Halloween is a week and some change away, so it’s the perfect time to give some Halloween happies to family, friends, and coworkers. These DIY Halloween gift bags are perfect for that! They’re so affordable. You could make 96 for less than $3!! I used them to “boo” my neighbors.

Speaking of “booing” my neighbors, I created six different “you’ve been booed” printables that you can use to do the same. There are three different prints each available with either a poem or simple instructions to let your neighbors or coworkers know how to continue the fun throughout the neighborhood or workplace. You have to see the adorable gifts I scored for my neighbors at Target.

While we’re in the world of free designs, I shared free PNGs (which work just like SVGs if you have a cutting machine) and printables that you can use to make a Halloween porch sign like this one. In the tutorial I explain how you can do so, with or without a Cricut!

This Week’s Feature

Happy Almost Halloween. What a fun month. Welcome to Happiness is Homemade and we are more than ready for October. So, apologies first for any weirdness is last week’s post. First time coding on my IPAD, noticed a few blips this week but I know you are all forgiving of human error, right?

This is still my month (Linda) I love hosting for October and this year there are 5 weeks for me to create. All the other months my amazing co-hosts share their favs. This month, I get to share my love of Fall, Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween, for this Canadian it is an amazing time of year.

Celebration of Fall

This week, a really wanted a return back to all things Fall, but y’all are killing me with all the fun Halloween crafts and ideas. t spooky Halloween. I am back to my standard recipe, food, sips, and fun.

First up is the cutest Spooky Halloween Tablescape from The Painted Apron. This fun table was title a Slightly Spooky but I think its is more a whimsical fun Halloween table. Plus she led me to a fun tablescape bloghop. How cool is that.

Dinner with Mummies

How fun is this snack for Halloween. The Magical Ingredients is sharing Samosa Mummies. These are delicious samosa mummies that are appetizers for Halloween parties. These can be made easily using ready to use crescent roll dough. ( She also shared Zombie Intestines that look so fun as well)

And to wrap up the week, how about these cute Halloween Pinwheel Cookies from Drug Store Divas. It’s all treats, no tricks when it comes to these Halloween Pinwheel Cookies.

These swirl-shaped Halloween cookies are stunning. They look just like store-bought cookies from a high-end bakery. But they’re not. These Halloween cookies made in your home kitchen … all from ingredients you already have at home.

Plus I promise next week is Halloween and tables and crafts and DIY’s all around. Just really needed a fun theme this weekend.
