Crafty Halloween Costume Awards

halloween-costume-awardsHappy Halloween!

I hope you had a great weekend! Any Halloween activities?

We hosted a party for our son’s friends on Saturday, which included BBQ’d brats and burgers, old-fashioned games and a creepy movie. And, of course, LOADS of candy. And, tonight, we have our daughter’s friends coming over. Our spooky house has been hoppin’ with teenagers this weekend! Fun times for sure.

I always enjoy seeing the creative costumes these kids come up with.  As part of the costume contest, I created these awards from an inexpensive bag of skeletons found at the party store. I dressed them up with crepe paper fringe and ribbon bow ties. Love the cheesy grins these skeletons have. 🙂

The banners are just simply constructed from cardstock. I like the charm of handwriting the category. And a  little pumpkin garland adds a little extra texture. Instead of pinning the awards to the recipients’ costumes, I thought they might work better as a ribbon necklace.

I hope you have a festive and safe Halloween!
