DIY Superhero Halloween Costume

The things I would have done for this exact costume as a little girl. That cape? The stuff my childhood dreams were made of right there. And the best part? No sewing involved. I confidently give Jen Rodriguez and Mirelle Carmichael moms of the year for creating these getups. See all of this adorableness and more, ...

DIY Halloween Treat Bags

Everyone knows by now that calories don't count on Halloween, so why not use this excuse to let your guests stock up on party goods before their departure? Our fabulously festive "Treat yo'self" favor bags are just the ticket. Because, as they say, it's all in the (sugary, sweet, delicious!) details.

DIY Gold Dot Vase

The frugalista within always gets really excited when we come up with a fabulous party project that can totally be repurposed once your party guests have retired for the evening. This Kate Spade inspired vase is all that and more. Though it undeniably added that je ne sais quoi to our shin-dig, I'd just as easily place it on my dining room table any ol' day of...

DIY Fringe Backdrop

Today is SMP's Annual Halloween Party! You might remember last year's French Masquerade theme that we all fell in love with. Well, this year we're mixing it up, going in more of a Kate Spade fab direction and we couldn't have loved the outcome any more. But, before we get to the party we wanted to share the totally essential ...

DIY Halloween Costume: Pastry Chef & Cake

Of all of the DIY costumes that we've shared this week - the hot air ballon, the sushi roll, the bubble bath duo - this one is the costume that produced bar none the most giggles. Probably because we handed the girls a pastry bag filled with...

DIY Halloween Costume: Bubble Bath

When I was little my mom used to make all of our Halloween costumes. And as I got older I begged her to let me buy one out of a bag just so that I could look like everyone else. I used to swear I would never say to my child "I could totally MAKE that." Fast forward 25 years and here we are. A mother who has fallen hopelessly in love with the wonder of handmade everything. And her daughter who is still young enough...

DIY Calligraphy Pumpkins

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with Halloween. I love the candy aspect (obviously), and the whole costume thing is fantastic (my inner child is so in). But the designer within has issues getting on board with all things ghoulish and gross. So when our in house designer came up with the idea of carving our pumpkins using cute calligraphy quotes? Well, it really doesn't get much better than that. Pumpkin Serrated knife Large spoon Linoleum cutter Masking tape...

DIY Halloween Costume: Sushi Roll

I'm not sure who's more in love with this costume, myself or Abby's sweet little lady, Audrey. One thing I know for sure is that I'm now officially obsessed with Halloween. Between little William's incredible hot air ballon attire and Audrey's sushi costume, I just don't think I can handle any more adorableness. To see all of the details...

DIY Halloween Costume: A Hot Air Balloon

Can you even begin to handle the cute? Because my mind is kind of exploding at this very second. I've said before that our in house DIYer is absolutely brilliant, but she has completely outdone herself this time. Now all I need to do is figure out how to transform this into an adult version. Captured by Ruth Eileen , if you only ever look at one gallery here on SMP Living...

A Gilded Ombre Pumpkin DIY

This year I decided it was essential to embrace Halloween with a bit of gilded pumpkin goodness. I recently discovered the wonders of Martha Stewart crafts paint and I experimented with a few colors to make a gradient effect on a simple kraft pumpkin. It really is a simple project, but the resulting product is filled with wow. Martha Stewart Metallic Acrylic craft Paint in three shades (available at...

DIY Halloween Drip Candles

Up next is a breakdown of three great DIYs we incorporated into our high glam Halloween Dinner Party. All easy, no fuss ways to gussy up an at home affair. A palette of white and black combined with the prettiest of pale peach set the stage for an elegant spread and with the addition of these three projects, the party had instant depth and sophistication. So gather up those...
