Blitsy Mondays: Halloween DIYs and A Plant That Won’t Die

I was looking at the calendar the other day and realized we are nearing the end of October. How in the world did that happen?!? No, seriously how is Halloween next weekend???  I can not get over how quickly time has been flying by lately.  It is really quite insane.  I feel like I was just laying out at the beach soaking up the sun, complaining about how hot it was.  Today, I woke with to darkness and tossed on an extra layer of clothing because I was “freezing”!

Even though I am still in shock Halloween is pretty much upon us, I decided to share a couple of fun last-minute projects you can make.  One is a quick costume you can whip up with materials you (most likely) have in you home.  If your kiddo needs a costume for school and you have been too busy to actually pick something up, this DIY Super Hero Costume Out of a T-Shirt is right up your alley.  Your kids will love customizing their cape to create their very own super hero.  Heck, you could also create your own cape if you are heading out to an adult Halloween party.  As you know, anything goes! :)

Another fun Halloween project for you are these adorable paper pumpkins.  I used the We R Memory Keepers Gift box Punch Board to create this DIY trio of paper pumpkins.  This punch board is traditionally used to create paper gift boxes for gift-giving.  Since I like to think outside of the box, I decided to turn my little boxes into a family of pumpkins.  Once you see this punch board in action you will seriously be addicted.  Trust me, everyone who has purchased this board has been making boxes left and right.  If you are getting married, or throwing a party, this gift box punch board will allow you to create custom packing for all of your favors!

Okay, so this project is not one that belongs with other Halloween items, but I still wanted to share it.  I figured all of the foliage around us is starting to die off, why not create a plant that requires no watering and will last forever!  That’s right, this DIY Faux Wheat Grass Plant is so very easy to make.  All you need is felt, floral wire, and floral tape!  I am absolutely in love with how this turned out.  I have my faux wheat grass plant at work on my desk.  It is the perfect plant for work because you never have to remember to water it. Score!  All of you plant killers need to get on board with this faux plant and stop killing all of those poor real plants!
