Halloween Party Napkins

Hi Idea Room readers! My name is Tauni and I blog at SNAP! – a site where I can share social media tips, DIY and entertainingideas. I also host a fun social media conference with Amy and a few other fun ladies in the spring.

I am simply thrilled to be guest posting today. I found Amy’s site when she first started blogging and have followed her ever since. She’s taught me so much about being a mom, a woman and a positive person and I am truly grateful to call her my friend…

Halloween has become one of my favorite holidays. It’s fun to decorate AND fun to celebrate. Each year, we mark the week of Halloween with a spooky dinner.

This year, bats have dominated conversation so we’re having a bat themed dinner. I couldn’t find any fun party napkins with bats, so we made our own!  Today I am sharing with you how to make your own DIY Halloween Napkins.

How to Make Simple Halloween Party Napkins

These napkins are great for instances where you need something really specific. The best part is they are super inexpensive too!

I had some fun, sort of rough letter/number stamps (sort of creepy, right?) on hand that I decided to mix in with the little bat stamp I found at Hobby Lobby. I think I paid about $2 for the bat stamp.

I love the clear plexi stamps. It makes it so easy to line things up and get them where you want them…If I would have thought of it in advance, I probably would have tried to find a bat I could have used on the plexi block as well.

I prefer the pigment ink stamps that run about $2-3. The don’t seem to bleed as much as some of the other inks I tried on the paper napkins.

All you have to do is ink up, stamp lightly and let dry. Bam! You’re all done!!!

They’d also be perfect for a fun classroom party…

I love simple party projects with high impact, don’t you?!

Of course, the napkins are just part of our decor. We’ve got this spooky skeleton wreath on the front door…

And this fun bat wreath hanging inside…

(to go with the bat theme of course)

I’d love to get to know YOU better. I hope you will stop by the blog, or join me on Facebook and Pinterest.

Thanks so much for sharing these fun Halloween napkins Tauni.  They are so perfect for a Halloween party!  I have enjoyed working with Tauni on a lot of different projects and am always asking her for advice.  She has become a good friend and I am so grateful for the blessings I have been able to enjoy because of this blog.  Thanks Tauni!  –Amy

Halloween Pop Box Gift

So excited to welcome Kristyn today as part of our Fall Festival!  Kristyn is sharing an awesome tutorial for these DIY Halloween Candy Bottles and gift box.

Hi there Idea Room readers!! It’s Kristyn from Lil’ Luna! I’m so thrilled to be here today. I admire Amy so much, and look up to her not only as a blogger, but also as a friend and mother. The girl is amazing and so talented, so was I ecstatic when she asked for me to guest post today.

As I think about cooler weather and Fall, I can’t help but think of Halloween. It’s one of my favorite holidays, and our family has made some super fun traditions for that holiday. Although gift giving is associated more with Christmas, our family has actually tried serving and doing nice things for others all year round, and even around Halloween. People can always use a pick me up, right? So, this year I decided to come up with a super cute Halloween Pop Box Gift. I’ve made them in the past for Valentines, Christmas and Birthday, and they’ve alwas been a hit. Why not a Halloween version?! It can be given to your child’s teacher or just to a family who needs some extra cheer. It’s even great for the hubby!! This gift is easy and perfect for anyone.

Add your bottles back to the box and be sure to add your front printable to the box that says “No Tricks, Just Treats”. Now you have super cute and easy Halloween Gift to give to anyone.
