A New BUNDLE of Halloween Spookiness!


I'm trying to train myself to think ahead a little bit farther and had a goal this week to get some new printables done so I could spook up my mantle for Halloween.  I know it's a little bit early, but when my kids got home yesterday and saw my orange Halloween tubs out, they cheered!


I was inspired to create these prints after I made the graphic for the post I did on Halloween fonts.  I know there are lots of subway art images floating around out there... but I prefer subway art that is done with unique, whimsical fonts that speak to the holiday itself and this is what I came up with.  I plan on creating more for all of the upcoming holidays and I love that you can just store them behind each other in the frame and switch them out; making storage a cinch!

I did both subway images in 8x10 and 16x20 - and I am loving my googley-eyed frame.  I just bought a cheep black frame and glued eyeballs to it.  My kids were drooling - and I was even generous enough to share my googlies with them to make their own frames.


I love to "bundle" up my printables with lots of goodies... so thanks to my sister's suggestion - I also made some lip balm labels.  I like to print mine on sticker/label paper - it makes the task so quick and easy.  Printing, trimming and sticking them on takes less than a few minutes and makes a darling gift, favor or something fun for yourself and the kids.  See these four?  They walked away this morning in my kids' pockets.




I also made up some spooky bookmarks that are included in the bundle as well.  These make great classroom favors and are super fun for the kids.  Tie a few pencils to them with cute ribbon and you've got an easy, inexpensive favor for Halloween.

Super cute ideas!

Talana said...

Wow you are so cute! What is the black circular thingy with silver stars on it? And what are the jack-o-lantern and cat silhouettes made of? I love, love, love, love every little thing!

Katie said...

What an absolutely adorable mantle! My family would be thrilled to come home and see this. I'm inspired and very impressed. The eyeball mirror is awesome!

Colette said...

Thanks, Ladies! I'm so glad you like them! :)

Talana... my sister asked me the same thing. It's acutally a witches hat that I picked up at Target in the "Dollar Spot". The orange blocks with jack-0-lanerns and cat are made of metal, I picked them up at "The Art Garden" in Salt Lake City.

Thanks so much for leaving comments!
