Hot Glue Spiderweb Bowl
This spiderweb bowl is very easy to make. All you need is a bowl and hot glue. Painting it is optional. I love how sturdy it is. It holds my Halloween treats just fine!

Do you need a last minute birthday card? This is an easy, gender neutral, universal card that can be given to kids or adults.
Paper Kids' Crown
This is an inexpensive and easy way to make a custom kid's crown with a paper plate. It is ideal for playing dress up at home, as a party hat, or to complete a Halloween costume! This concept would be fun for a kids' party for them to decorate their own hats, too!
Salt Spider Web Painting
This is a fun activity for the kids to play with. And especially if you don't have glitter on hand, you can use salt as a cheaper alternative and some water colors, or acrylic paint mixed with water.
Save on Halloween Costumes
I got a brand new Minnie Mouse costume on Freecycle. I saw from the pictures that the trim in the front was damaged, and it was pretty obvious. I decided to take it anyway, as I have lots of trim I have bought at garage sales.
Reducing Credit Card Debt
Many of us use a credit card for online purchases, bill pay, or when we go out so we have some fraud protection. Throw in a major auto repair or medical expense and it can be easy to start running a balance. It's easy to feel resigned to being in debt but with proper planning you can get your credit cards under control.

Green Apple Monsters

Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume
I've seen a lot of creepy, gory costumes using a zipper and special effects kits to make people look like they have zombies underneath their unzipped skin. My costume this year is a take on that, but showing that under my skin, I am a girl made of gold.
This "handy" snack was always my mum's lovely way of trying to give us something healthier than candy on Halloween. It is cute in a spooky way, and that always makes up for the lack of chocolate. Okay, part of the time!
Spooky Spider Pizza
This pizza is super easy to make for Halloween. I love the contrast of colours from the pizza, the web made from ranch dressing, and the spiders made of olives. Oh, and it's super yummy, too!
Halloween Rice Balls
I love making Japanese rice balls (Onigiri). In Japan, it's very popular to go all out decorating rice balls any time of year. Over here, I do it more for Halloween. Enjoy this edible craft!
