I accidentally stumbled on this Chiquita Banana inspired fruit headband idea when I was trying to come up with an easy craft idea for a Halloween party last month, and I kind of loved the way it turned out in practice runs so I decided to share it with you! And in case you’re the kind of gal that plans her Halloween costume the day something calls for one (like myself), this is the perfect last-minute costume idea for you! That is if you have small honeycomb tissue balls lying around your house anyways..
Also, I wish I could tell you this was not a natural pose for me to make while modeling my crafts, but I actually felt really at home with myself. I’m not sure what that says about me as a person, but mostly I’m just happy to have justified this unnecessary Anthropologie polka dot shirt purchase yet again.

I’ve concocted quite a few ice cream shot recipes in the history of Sugar & Cloth, but I’ve yet to bust out any Halloween inspired ones. Valentine’s day? Got you covered. Christmas? Love it so much I made two, this one and this one. A just because ice cream cake shot? Most definitely. And now.. a ghouls guts ice cream cake shot recipe just for Halloween.
Luckily ghosts have a tendency to fall in line with my all white color scheme here on the blog, so I just went with it…

Though I’m not necessarily a big Halloween fan, I can still whip up a few non-scary decor ideas here and there, and these DIY Halloween glassware decals may actually be one of my prouder moments. I mean, not only were they an excellent excuse for me to breakdown and buy some copper glasses (to resemble pumpkin color, of course), but they’re also temporary so I can have these copper mug beauties all to my non-scary holiday self after the season ends.
To seal the deal, you can make a whole slew of custom glassware decals for your costume party with just one package of vinyl clings, bet you didn’t see that one coming!
Alright, so I’m not much of a Halloween person, but I can blend with the best of them (the Halloween lovers, that is) when need be. Usually that need comes somewhere around October over year, so alas, I’ve pulling up my spooktacular sleeves with these DIY fruit loop costume glasses over on Minted! It doesn’t get much scarier than glasses with fruit on them, right?
You can see the whole tutorial plus my little addition for combining these guys into a whole get-up! Just promise to picture a kid modeling them instead of me, okay?
