Free BOO! EEK! Halloween Gift Tags

Here’s a last minute Halloween gift idea that we shared over on A Night Owl blog last week.

Free Printable Halloween Gift Tags

I made these free printable Halloween gift tags with the kids a few weeks ago. I got out my black Japanese ink and paint brushes and together we wrote Halloween words. The six of us together must have filled up at least 50 sheets of paper. It was lots of fun (and a bit messy) to play around with the ink. Later I scanned in my favorite versions of BOO! and EEK! and used them to create these gift tags.

DIY Spooky Spider Web Jar

DIY Spooky Spider Web Jar @PagingSupermom #Halloween

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.

Make Your Own Shoe Decals

We had so much fun using our Cricut Explore to create the iron-on decals for our girl’s leggings project that we couldn’t resist whipping up something for the boys too. These text decals are a subtle but totally rad way to dress up a pair of canvas shoes.

You could write your child’s name, or any favorite quote or phrase. Inspired by our slightly rambunctious boys, whom we’re always chasing after, we made “Catch Me If You Can” decals.

We couldn’t decide whether we liked better the regular wording or the leftover strip peeled off from around the words — so we used both! We’re very curious which way you prefer, so please leave a comment below and let us know.
