DIY Spooky Spider Web Jar

As you know we’ve been having lots of fun with the new Cricut machine. The Cricut Explore allows us to cut our own designs, which is so awesome. There is even a new Print then Cut feature that we’re dying to try out. (If only there was more time!) So when Aimée designed these killer cute webs for our Creepy Banner, we knew we wanted to cut out some webs to spook up our favorite straight-sided jars.

We filled our jar with Spider Egg Popcorn (recipe here), but it would also make a fabulous party punch bowl, and it would be perfect for holding candy for trick or treaters.

Halloween with Shutterfly Decor + Giveaway

With preparations for my Halloween dinner party underway and assembling all the kids’ costumes, we’re in high gear for Halloween! Yesterday Aimée came over and helped me style my front porch with a bunch of darling decor from Shutterfly.

It is so much fun to be able to literally dream up any decor and bring it to life with Shutterfly. I’ve had the “something wicked this way comes” quote from Macbeth on my brain for weeks, and I just love how it looks turned into Wood Wall Art on my front door. (You can make one too with our free graphic file downloads, see below.)

I usually hang a wreath on the door, but I think this wood print is fabulous, and I love how the wood grain shows through. Actually I was planning to lean it up beside my door, but when we tried hanging it, we were instantly sold — the scale of it on the door is so much fun. I glued a couple pieces of felt to the bottom corners to help protect my door and the print from movement when the door opens and closes.
