Make These Pretty Halloween Party Decorations and Goody Bags!

Halloween Candy Jar Wrappers Last week I was invited to participate in a contest to become one of the 2014 craft bloggers for “12 Months of Martha Stewart Crafts”. I received a box full of Martha Stewart Craft goodness all in Halloween style, with which I was to create a crafty blog post. Oh what fun, I love a good challenge! I started with yesterday’s post, using the spider web punch to create some fun paper jewelry. In addition to the punch, I found the items in the photo below and decided to use them to create these colorful and very easy Halloween party decorations.

I then added the adhesive border pad and die-cut borders to decorate the candy jars and food displays.  The embossed pumpkin punch made a perfect cupcake topper and the gift labels from the craft paper pad were a great personalized decoration for the orange soda bottles. The pom pom spiders made spooky straw decoration and my favorite of all is the spider lace edge punch used to edge the black popcorn cones for some spidery goodness. I am munching on the popcorn as I write this.

I had such a great time using these Martha Stewart Craft items to create this party. To me it is just not Halloween without Martha! Enjoy the tutorial below and we will see you Thursday for a DIY paper fall garland, Lia style. Cheers! ~ Lia

Halloween Goody Bag Tutorial

  1. As a guy I think I can get away with helping my wife make these for a kids party. They look awesome.

  2. Perfection in every detail, as we’ve come to expect from you, Lia! :) I love every single thing! Your mannequin look fittingly creepy. hee hee

    How did you find out about/enter the 12 Months of Martha contest? Do they advertise that on their site, or is it by invitation only? Sounds like a dream job to me!!

    Lisa :)

    • Haha. Thanks Lisa. I keep those hands around for these occasions. :-)

      I did get an email invite from the Martha folks. Get going on your blog and perhaps you will see that email next year!!

  3. Holy cat nips Lia, for somebody like me who doesn’t do Halloween anymore I’m about ready to go buy some of the goodies to make some Halloween anyway.
    Love the popcorn cones ( cones are another favorite paper craft of mine) and all that you showed.
    Did you have a party or going to since you made all those awesome decorations? Wonder how they choose what bloggers to offer all the freebies to. Have fun with all those awesome freebies, will look forward to the fall garland tomorrow, another of my favorite paper crafts. Happy days

  4. Creative as always! The moment I saw the pumpkin chain strip, I thought you are going to give us some printable. May be in some post you could give us printable wrist straps for a kids’ party with different themes. 😉

  5. Everything looks beautiful. Love how you styled it all. Thanks for the tutorial
