DIY Ghost Mirror Halloween Project

DIY Ghost Mirror Halloween Project

You guys, Halloween is almost here! I am SO excited! I am already sneaking a few decorations up here and there. Only a few at a time so my husband doesn’t get too mad at me haha! Now while I love my Halloween decorations, what I don’t love is having to spend tons of money on them. I don’t know what it is about holiday items being so expensive, but it drives me nuts. So rather than shelling out the money at the big box stores, I find out way’s I can make Halloween decorations at home! So this week I decided to try my hand at a DIY Creepy Ghost Mirror which was inspired by something I saw in the store for $30 that I wasn’t going to spend ha! This project cost me…$2 to make. Yes really! And the cool thing about it is that you can only see the “ghost” if you are standing right in front of it. If you stand beside it it just looks like a dusty old mirror. Keep on reading if you would like to learn how to make one of your own! [Read more…]

Hello my fellow Halloween lovers! Tomorrow is officially fall, who else is excited!? I am so glad that I have a kid that loves fall holidays as much as I do. Every year at my daughters school they are not allowed to dress up in full Halloween costumes, but they are allowed to dress in Halloween clothing. So I thought it would be fun to make a DIY Halloween Tutu for my daughter to wear! Something that has always amazed me is the price of tutu’s either in store or online. They can get super expensive. This project cost me $5 total, and turned out pretty cute in my oh-so-humble opinion. Would you like to learn how to make one for yourself? Let’s check it out! [Read more…]

I was looking for the perfect graduation gift. Then it hit me what does everyone need? They need money. I mean even with our posts on how to save for college and how to save on stuff for the dorm you wills till need money.

Cool whip hot cocoa heart for Valentine's Day Treat

Hot chocolate with a touch of  love

This looks so sweet and is so easy. All you do is grab a heart shaped cookie cutter, put it on a baking sheet or plate lined with parchment paper. Spoon cool whip into the cookie cutter and freeze. Once frozen pop out the heart and float it on top of your hot cocoa. My sons loved this treat and now want floating cool whip shapes every time we have hot cocoa. If you need a recipe for amazing hot cocoa, check out this copycat recipe.
