Happy Halloween Y'all!

It's finally here... the day we can all dress up, act goofy, and eat LOTS of candy without being judged! We are excited to put on our costumes and take Noah trick-or-treating.

To kick off this wonderful day we'd like to share our scary photo shoot we had with Brooklynn (our cousin). Hope you enjoy!

We loved taking these horror pictures with her. It's amazing how pretty she is even when she's being scary! :) These next two are our favorites from the shoot.

We also attempted to have Noah in some of our pictures..but..as you can see it isn't possible. He's too cute and innocent. :)

DIY Candy Corn Onesie

We are SOOO excited for Halloween! And of course we want to celebrate all day tomorrow. :) So since Noah probably won't be okay with wearing his costume the whole day, we decided to make him a cute candy corn onesie. It's a pretty simple project that you can make on any shirt for your kiddos.

Here's what you'll need to get started:

MyOnlySunshineBlog_FallCraft_DiyCandyCornOnesie
  • 2 erasers
  • white onesie (or shirt)
  • yellow fabric paint
  • orange fabric paint
  • carving tool
  • pencil

Here's what you do:

1. Draw your candy corn on one of the erasers with your pencil. (Make it a thick layer of pencil)

2. Then press the two erasers together (the one you drew on and the blank one) to stamp the candy corn drawing onto the new one.

3. The second candy corn will be faint, so trace over it to make it dark like your first one.

4. For the outline and bottom of the candy corn, cut out all around the outside of the candy corn and the two top sections of one eraser. On the second eraser, cut out all but the middle section of the candy corn.(See picture below)

5. Take the outlined candy corn stamp and dip it is yellow paint.(Or orange and use yellow for the next step) Use the stamp to create a little candy corn outline.

6. Then take your other stamp (with the middle section) and dip it in the orange paint. Line the stamp up as close as you can and stamp it.

7. Repeat steps 4 & 5 all over the onesie. (Make it to your liking)

That's it! You now have a fun shirt your little one can wear during the day on Halloween. We can't wait to let Noah wear his! Of course we will post pictures and you should too. :)

DIY Fall Centerpiece

Our entire plan for all of our fall decorations has been to come up with ideas that are inexpensive and simple, but are super cute and have a lot of impact.

DIY Fall Centerpiece (click through for details)

We think our DIY fall centerpiece fits in very well. Costing us right at $8 for the entire thing (pretty awesome, huh? The dollar store has definitely been our friend so far this fall. They have had several awesome fall options for us to use that obviously are only $1 and have been so cute!!)

DIY Fall Centerpiece (click through for details)

Here is what you need:

  • fake pumpkins (from the dollar tree)
  • fake leaves (from the dollar tree)
  • spray paint
  • paint
  • paint brush

Here is what we did:

  1. We spray painted all of the pumpkins white.
  2. We laid out all of the leaves that we wanted to use.
  3. Next we painted the leaves with gold paint.

Putting it together:

  1. After all of the paint dried, we randomly laid down all of our leaves. It’s very hard to be random on purpose, so we try to just sort of drop them and leave them. We do adjust some of them to make sure that we like it. :)
  2. Then we evenly placed our pumpkins across the leaves. (we tried 3 and 5 but it just depends how long your table is)

Yay!!! We now have a super cute (and cheap) table runner for fall!

Halloween Bowling

Today we have a fun, easy game you and your kiddos can make and play together!

Here's what you need:

  • Empty toilet paper rolls
  • White paint
  • Black paint
  • Small orange rubber/plastic ball
  • Sharpie

Here's what to do:

1. Paint all of your toilet paper rolls white. You can make as many as you like, we made eight.

MyOnlySunshineBlog_HalloweenBowling_Diy

2. After the white paint dries, let your kiddos paint on ghost faces with the black paint. Set those aside to dry.

MyOnlySunshineBlog_HalloweenBowling_Diy

3. Take the orange ball and let one of your older kiddos turn it into a jack-o-lantern using the sharpie.

MyOnlySunshineBlog_HalloweenBowling_Diy

4. Allow the pins and ball to dry completely before letting the kids play.

5. When its time to play set up the pins in any arrangement. Take turns rolling the ball, and seeing who can knock over the most pins, just like regular bowling.

You can play this inside or even outside on the patio. It's a lot of fun for the kids because not only can they play, they also get to help create the game. It's a fun game for every one and very inexpensive. We hope you and your kiddos have fun playing!
