The Friday Five – Halloween Costumes

The Friday Five - Halloween Costumes | Squirrelly Minds

Pinocchio Themed Family Costume from A Beautiful Mess / Puppy Cupcake Halloween Costume from Lovely Indeed / Rainbow Bird Wings from hello, Wonderful / Infant Sushi Costume from Cheryl Style / PInata Couples Costume from Morena’s Corner

Costumes for the WHOLE family!
Since the deer halloween costume I made two years ago, I haven’t put much thought into dressing up. In fact last year I just recycled the costume because I loved it so much. But this year I’m getting a little antsy and want to try something different.
I don’t think an adult in a sushi decorating onesie would be as cute as a baby though…

DIY Halloween Tin Can Candleholders | Squirrelly Minds
Whoa what? Tan is blogging today?
Yes I’ve been away a bit lately, caught in a whirlwind of a new job (which so far I love), thanksgiving, and getting sick. I’ll try to make it here a bit more regularly. If not here, then setting up the Squirrelly Minds Shop, cause I’m determined to not let this nasty cold stand in the way of that (although I’ll admit it has so far).

But today I had to share this cute DIY I did for Used Everywhere. I love getting creative with what’s in the recycling box, and this time I opted for a fun DIY to get in the spooky spirit – tin can candle holders painted for Halloween! I currently have mine sitting on my mantel decorated up for the occasion (see pics in the post for a sneak peek of our living room re-decor plans). It’s a cute and simple way to add some halloween decor on a mega cheap budget. So head on over for the full DIY tutorial!

See you there!
