This is Halloween

full bag display 1I love Halloween which is no surprise to anyone. Any excuse I can get to make a costume or buy stuff with a gothic bent to it, is completely fine with me. I try to keep an eye on the contests section of Instructables [a website featuring a bunch of DIY tutorials for all kinds of things] because they offer sweet prizes. Plus, I enjoy the instruction writing process. It makes me feel like Martha Stewart should hire me or that I could have my own show on PBS and it would be so much better than that horrible Katie Brown show. [She probably a nice person, but the projects that she and her workshop construct make my gorge rise. I present these as examples: vase covers and a party sign. Oh god.
But I digress...

I've made a couple of Instructables for their Halloween contest. For the more in depth one, I chose to show everyone how to make cute little treat bags. You could use the instructions for making any sort of gift bag, really. Then, as an add on, I explain how to make your own Halloween-style Easter grass.

I have to say, it's so funny you mentioned Katie Brown...I have really tried to like her since she seems like a more human Martha Stewart. But, whenever I watch her show, I feel like the projects are dumb--I could do waaaay better and no one is paying me ;)
