Monday, October 20th, 2014

It’s perfect Fall weather here in Utah, and we can’t help but want to bring a little festivity to our homes.

Here’s a few little details we’ve been enjoying.

First up Em’s home:

We admit we’ve been thinking too much of Christmas this year, hello babies and Christmas…eeeek!!!

Holler Dollar: Fairy Wings

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

I was undecided on the girls’ Halloween costumes this year, but knew I wanted something easy and adorable.

The Dollar Tree came to my rescue again with these fairy wings (link HERE). Matched with clothes they already had: a onesie, cardigan, tutu, leggings and ballet shoes…Elizabeth transformed into one pretty cute fairy!

I think the only thing cuter will be when we double the fun on the actual night. Hannah was asleep for the dress rehearsal!

 Do you have any quick and thrifty costume ideas? Do share!

$2 Witchy Halloween Display

Monday, October 6th, 2014

The kids in my neighborhood really get a kick when I make our front living room creepy for Halloween.

This year I’ve decided to really freak them out with floating witch hats over my bookcase!

You Will Need:

Black construction paper (2 yards at Zurchers $.59/yd)

Tape or double sided tape (your preference)

Scissors

Fishing wire, thread or ribbon to hang

.How To:

1. Make a cone shape as small or large as you would like and secure with tape.

2. Cut around the base of the cone so it is pretty even and can stand up.

3. Cut and fold flaps into the base of the cone to create a shelf for the brim of the hat to sit.

4. Cut a circle of how big you would like the brim of the hat to be. Fold circle in half and cut a hole in the center.

You want this to be smaller than the base of the hat, so it can fit snugly. Start small, and make bigger as needed.

6. You’re done! Now just thread fishing wire through the cone to suspend and tape to the ceiling.

Haha, yes I know that I’m a nerd!

With fishing wire, tape and paper used I estimate this project to be less than $2!!!

Can’t beat that, Holler!!!

Holler Dollar: Googly about Googly Eyes!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

There’s something about these little things that make me giddy.

I don’t know what it is, but they are so simple and funny it’s genius.

I thought I’d be fun to dot them around my house for Halloween and bring a little life to everyday objects.

Here’s how it turned out:
