I love seeing the new season of craft supplies hit the stores. And I really don't care if I start to see Halloween stuff in August, when it's still 115 degrees outside. Crafters need time to come up with ideas and make cool stuff!
Those thoughtful, homemade gifts? They're not made at the last minute, people. So even if you object to holiday decorations coming out early in other stores, let's give craft stores a break.
And yeah, it's a little early to start Halloween content here on the blog, but once the inspiration starts flowing, I just can't keep it to myself! So I'm kicking it off with these eyeball-embellished Halloween favor bags.
I'm going to give dollar stores my holiday-appropriate-time-waiver, too, because I came up with this idea when I was in the 99 Cent Only Store, and found most of the materials to make this craft.
Like the black silk flowers and that awesome sparkly, spiderwebby tulle--both from the dollar store.
Silk flowers can be expensive, but I love tearing them apart and using them in craft projects, so I LOVE that I can get them for so little money. (This post is not sponsored, in case you were wondering--I'm just speaking from the heart about my love of cheap craft supplies).
I wish I knew someone whose birthday was around Halloween and LOVES Halloween, so I could wrap their birthday gift like this! The bags strike me more as favor bags, but this is worthy of a full-up gift.
I made a quick video to show you how I made these bags:
