Free Printable Halloween Candy Bar Wrappers

Halloween candy has been filling supermarket shelves for a few weeks now. I usually try to buy some early so that I have enough by Halloween, but to be honest, at least half of that candy is gone by the time the big day comes. I decided that I might be less tempted to open the candy if it was wrapped all cute and ready to give out at Halloween.

I like to give the full-size candy bars to my nieces, nephews, and close friends, and save the fun-size candy bars for trick or treaters. So, I've made FREE printable Halloween candy bar wrappers in both sizes and have multiple designs to choose from!!

Free Printable Halloween Candy Bar Wrappers at artsyfartsymama #Halloween #freeprintable #printable

These would be a fun way to dress up your treats for giving out at school, sharing with friends, party favors, trick or treating, or more! There are candy bar wrappers made for both full and fun-size candy bars. They are measured to fit Hershey's and Crunch candy bars, but I'm sure they would fit other candy bars, too. Probably won't be a perfect fit, but they'd be close enough. Same for the fun-size candy bars.

Pizzadillas

Easy Pizzadillas at artsyfartsymama.com #recipe #pizza

Pizza + quesadillas = one awesome snack! My daughter loves helping "decorate" the pizzadillas, and they cook in minutes. For older kids who love to cook and want to learn to make something on their own, these pizzadillas are super simple and fun! These are also great to make for dinner on nights when you just don't want to cook and don't have the money to go out to eat. 

Ingredients:
(makes one Pizzadilla)
2 tortillas (flour or wheat)
1/4-1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
your favorite pizza toppings
pizza sauce (optional)

Directions:
  1. Lightly butter one side of each tortilla.
  2. Place one tortilla, butter-side down, on a heated frying pan or quesadilla maker.
  3. If using pizza sauce, spread a small amount on tortilla.
  4. Sprinkle cheese evenly on tortilla, making sure not to get it too close to the edge.
  5. Sprinkle the rest of the toppings evenly on top of the cheese.
  6. Top with other tortilla, butter-side up.
  7. Cook pizzadilla for about 5 minutes, and flip. Close the quesadilla maker and cook for about 5 minutes. It's done when the tortilla is golden brown.
  8. Cut into triangles, or remove from quesadilla maker and serve. You could also use pizza sauce as a dip.

Tips:
  • Use cookie cutters to make it more fun to eat, or to make for a fun holiday snack.
  • Cook the pizzadillas in the oven: Place pizzadillas on a baking sheet, and broil for about 3 minutes.
  • Cook the pizzadillas in the microwave: Place pizzadillas on a microwave-safe plate, and cook for about 20-30 seconds.

Easy Chocolate Banana Bread

Are you a banana bread lover? I sure am, especially when the recipe is simple and practically fool-proof. Not only is this banana bread the easiest you'll ever make, but it's full of chocolate! We love making it just for snacking, or it makes a great dessert. Plus, you most likely already have your ingredients in your pantry.

Easy 4 Ingredient Chocolate Banana Bread at artsyfartsymama.com #recipe #bananabread

Ingredients:
Chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
3-4 medium overripe bananas
1/2-1 cup chocolate chips, nuts, etc. (optional)

Easy 4 Ingredient Chocolate Banana Bread at artsyfartsymama.com #recipe #bananabread

Directions:
  1. Smash bananas in a large bowl. I threw the whole (peeled) bananas into the KitchenAid and they were smashed in seconds.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Batter will fill two small loaf pans, or one large loaf pan. Make sure to spray pans well with nonstick cooking spray and add a little bit of flour.
  3. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes. The larger loaf pans may need to cook for 45-50 minutes. Test with a toothpick to check that the banana bread is cooked through.
Tips:
  • Freeze overripe bananas. Put them in a Ziploc bag (peel and all) and thaw when you're ready to use! They stay good for up to 3 months.
  • Don't have a loaf pan? No problem! You can also make this recipe in a muffin tin, cake pan, or a bundt pan. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  • Not a chocolate fan? Try my regular Easy Banana Bread!

Toddler Wrap Skirt

My daughter is growing like a weed! I can't believe how fast she has grown out of her nice dresses and skirts. When I first saw a sample of this wrap skirt in the Pine Needles store at Gardner Village, I knew I needed to get the pattern to try out. A wrap skirt ties at the waist, so it's easily adjustable as she grows.

Toddler Wrap Skirt at artsyfartsymama.com #sewing

I got the pattern by AJ's Bowtique at Pine Needles. The fabrics are also from Pine Needles, and I love the coordinating patterns I finally decided on. The pattern I picked up comes in sizes 6 months - 3T. I really like patterns that come in multiple sizes so we can make a new skirt for her as she grows without having to purchase another pattern. More for your money, right?

This pattern was really simple. I would say a beginner would be able to put it together with no problem. The instructions were clear (important for someone like me), and was a fairly quick evening project. Honestly, the toughest part is probably adding a button hole, but with a little practice, it won't be an issue.

I'm so happy with how the skirt turned out, and I need to send a big thanks to my mom for helping me with it (hard to sew with a broken leg). Zoey loves getting dressed up in her new skirt and twirling all over the house and yard. Can't wait to make a few more!!

I received products from Pine Needles in exchange for this post. All opinions are 100% mine.

DIY Hello Kitty Bracelet

DIY Hello Kitty Bracelet at artsyfartsymama.com

My daughter loves jewelry. She's at the age now that she has her own "style" and is able to help create her own jewelry.  It has been so fun for the both of us, and definitely a lifesaver for me to be able to let her have something to create on her own while I'm laid up with a broken leg and not really able to help much. This bracelet coordinates with the Hello Kitty Bubblegum Necklace, but we used faceted beads from CraftProjectIdeas.com instead of the larger bubblegum beads.

*Please supervise younger children. These beads are small and you don't want anyone choking on them!

DIY Hello Kitty Bracelet at artsyfartsymama.com

Supplies:
Pastel Faceted Beads (found at CraftProjectIdeas.com)
4 Hello Kitty Charms (see how we turned the cabochons into charms)
Stretch Magic Cord (1mm)
Small Clothespin

DIY Hello Kitty Bracelet at artsyfartsymama.com

Measure your (or your daughter's) wrist, then add 2-3 inches. Cut that amount of Stretch Magic cord and pre-stretch it. This will make it fit better when you are finished with the bracelet(s). Clip the clothespin to the end of the cord and start stringing the beads.

Depending on the wrist size and the amount of charms you're using, you'll need to play with how many beads to use. We ended up only using 5 beads in between each Hello Kitty charm since this bracelet was so small. We also made another bracelet that was full of faceted beads to go with it.

I poured all the beads into a cup and let her add all the beads to the cord. She loved being able to do it all on her own. Since my daughter's wrist is so tiny, we ended up only using 5 beads in between each Hello Kitty charm. We also made another bracelet that was full of faceted beads to go with it.

DIY Hello Kitty Bracelet at artsyfartsymama.com

Once you've strung all the beads on, tightly tie the cord in a double knot. It will slip, so pull as tight as you can, and tie a few more knots, pulling tight. Find someone to help you hold the cord, pulling the knot tightly together. Add a drop of super glue on the knot and let dry. Trim the cord about 1/4" away from the knot and it should hold.

Put your bracelets on and show off your new "stylish" arm candy!

I received some of these craft supplies as compensation from CraftProjectIdeas.com. All opinions are my own.

How to Print Instagram Photos and DIY Photo Canvas

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. I have been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.


DIY Instagram Photo Canvas at artsyfartsymama.com #cbias #WalgreensApp

There's no doubt that I love using Instagram. It's easy to use and share photos, and I can save memories shot on my phone all in one place. I've seen a lot of fun projects ideas using your own Instagram images, and wondered how to print Instagram photos from your phone easily and not costing too much to create something of my own.

Unfortunately, with everything being online, I haven't been very good about keeping up with printing any of my photos or scrapbooking. My biggest excuse for not printing is that it's expensive and time consuming, but with the Walgreens Mobile App, it makes printing your Instagram photos a breeze and really inexpensive! The app very user-friendly, and your prints are ready in about an hour!

How to Print Instagram Photos at artsyfartsymama.com #cbias #WalgreensApp  How to Print Instagram Photos at artsyfartsymama.com #cbias #WalgreensApp

The Walgreens App is simple to use. It's free, and available on both iPhone and Android. The app makes it easier than ever to print your photos from Instagram, straight from your Instagram album! To get started, open the Walgreens Mobile App. Select "Photo" (center top) to start choosing what photos you want to print.

How to Print Instagram Photos at artsyfartsymama.com #cbias #WalgreensApp  How to Print Instagram Photos at artsyfartsymama.com #cbias #WalgreensApp

Now, you can choose to load photos from your phone, Facebook, or Instagram. Login through Instagram and it will bring up all your photos in your Instagram account. Simply tap on each photo you want printed (you'll see a red checkmark on each one you select), and hit print to finish placing your order. You can print photos 4x4" or 8x8". Choose which store location you want to print your photos, and they are ready in about an hour! It's so simple and quick to print photos from your phone!

With my prints, I decided to make an Instagram photo collage on a canvas to hang on my gallery wall. My canvas measures 16x20"and fits 20 4x4" prints. This is an easy project with a big impact. It was fun going through my older Instagram photos to decide which ones to print.

DIY Instagram Photo Canvas at artsyfartsymama.com #cbias #WalgreensApp

Supplies:
16x20 Canvas
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush
20 4x4" Instagram Photos (printed at Walgreens)

DIY Instagram Photo Canvas at artsyfartsymama.com #cbias #WalgreensApp

With your photos already printed, the hard work is already done for you. Otherwise, you'd be cutting paper prints or trimming photos to size. Paint a small amount of Mod Podge in the corner of the canvas. Place photos on the canvas, one at a time starting in the corner. Take your time to make sure the photos are aligned and the edges are pressed down. If an image pops up, you can add a little more Mod Podge to the corner and press it down.

DIY Instagram Photo Canvas at artsyfartsymama.com #cbias #WalgreensApp

Keep adding photos until the canvas is filled. Let dry, then add another thin layer of Mod Podge on top. Let dry, hang up, and enjoy your new personalized piece of artwork!

Thanks, Walgreens, for giving me the chance to relive those memories!!
