Holding on to God, my Hubs, Kiddo and Hot Glue Gun

The season of gift giving is here!! If you’re like me, finding the best gift for someone is a fun challenge accompanied by tons of research, scoring the best deal and putting it in the perfect packaging. If that whole sentence stressed you out, then Yay! I’m glad you’re here! I did the research part for you. No sponsored things here, just a bunch of favorites, gifts I’m getting for my own fam and items from my personal wishlist. I hope it gives you great ideas too! I’ve linked them all on Amazon, but you can score some of the items from places like Marshall’s, TJ Maxx and Ross. They rotate their toy selection so much this time of year and you can get them at a fraction of the cost. Small shop friends, I have some great picks coming for you soon! The Amazon wishlists are all linked here! Happy gift giving!

These trick or treat bags bring back the good time vibes of using pillowcases for candy bags. The perfect size for storing an ambitious amount of candy!

I knew I wanted to add a fun Disney image to the bags. I love the designs of the Halloween balloons at Disneyland, and this year’s gave me all the vintage feels😍. It was the perfect addition!

My Tie dye method takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. So simple! Instead of using traditional tie dye dyes that you squirt on, I use RIT dye. This color combo turned out vintage/worn looking and I love it! I used RIT tangerine and purple to achieve this look. Then just use a plain white tote bag as the base. I found this 5 pack of white canvas totes on Amazon for $12.99.


Dye the whole bag with the orange dye using the instructions on the RIT dye. *You do not have to keep the bag in as long as it says on the instructions. Keep a close watch on the bag until it reaches the desired color. I kept mine in for under 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water and toss in the dryer.

Use rubber bands or hair ties to section off the bag. I used two on each side to make this circle pattern.

Prep the purple dye and put the orange bag with bands in. *I kept mine in for about 15 minutes. It will look just slightly darker than when it dries. Rinse in cool water again and dry.

Then to add embellishments! I used Cricut iron-on vinyl on mine. I’ve ended up using my Cricut Joy machine for SO many things this year. My machine only does smaller designs, but I spliced the image to cut out and piece together and it worked great!

There are so many ways you could customize these! If you don’t have a Cricut machine, look into fun iron on patches, or pre printed vinyls on Etsy.

If you have your own machine, feel free to use the image below!

When I saw this display in Downtown Disney, I knew I wanted to recreate it somehow. I want a replica of the Mickey bucket for my yard!😍

We’re currently quarantined, which has given me lots of time to draw. Milo loves when I make coloring pages and will do as many as I print out. I love that coloring is something we can sit together and do. I hope that the pages I make are something adults and kiddos will love!

The Mickey garland was painted using this Michael’s garland. Just add some black foam sheet for ears, and some paint for the colors And you’re done!

Happy Weekend!

Keep Making!
