DIY: Pretty Halloween Crafts

Halloween is just two weeks away (how did that happen?!?!?) and the season is in full swing. Now, while I am all about fall and Halloween, I am so not into the gore and monsters and yucky stuff that sometimes come along with the holiday. I am much more into the pretty and cute side of Halloween (you can’t separate me from my pink!). So today I have two cute Halloween themed crafts to share with you for those of you who also may want to skip out on the blood and guts. Here’s what we’re making!

I obviously had to make some Halloween themed Minnie ears, and when I saw this fabric at Joann I pretty much squealed out loud with joy. It’s so cute! But also Halloween! I knew it was the perfect fabric to make my Halloween ears (despite the fact that I had previously purchased not one, but two other Halloween themed fabrics to make ears with…don’t judge me). I made these ears following the same tutorial that can be found here. I LOVE how these came out! It was kind of tricky to match up the fabric with the images that I wanted, and I burned the crap out of my fingers working on this bow, but it was so worth it!

Next I wanted to make a tote bag for carting around all of my Halloween goodies. This pink tote bag came in a pack that included an orange and a mint green bag as well. Originally I was going to do some sort of bat or something else Halloween-ish on the orange bag, but then I figured why not make something that is a little more versatile? Let’s be real, I am maybe going to use an orange bag with a bat on it once or twice, but a pink bag with a heart can be used anytime!

Making this bag was super simple. All I did was cut out a black heart from glitter heat transfer vinyl and use my iron to adhere it to the bag. Since I wanted to add at least a little Halloween to the bag, I attached these three Disney villain inspired buttons from Cheery Human Studios. I love that they add a bit of evil for the next two weeks, but that they are easily removable when Halloween is over.

I love how both of these projects came out! Pink, black, and orange is a great color combo and I love how the colors pop and are super vibrant.

Are you more into cute Halloween or scary Halloween? What do you think, should pink become an official Halloween color?
