Pinterest Halloween Ideas from Santa’s Elves

Halloween is just around the corner and we elves couldn’t be more excited. Halloween is our second favorite holiday, after Christmas of course! It’s one of the few occasions we can dress in full elf uniform and not get funny looks. Nothing sparks my holiday spirit more than putting on my green and red stockings, Santa hat and elf shoes. I simply love it.

Halloween is such a creative holiday. There are so many different decorations, costumes, and treats to choose from.  Since Pinterest and DIY are huge this Halloween season, I’ve put together some of my favorite spooky ideas from my Pinterest board for you to enjoy. Maybe you and your family can try a few!

How to:

  • Use a black thumbprint to make the ghosts’ mouth and use black finger prints to make the eyes

A Healthier Halloween Treat

Halloween is all about candy, candy, candy so here is a healthier treat that still looks fun and is delicious!

How to:

  • Mandarin oranges in the middle
  • Topped with cool whip or whipped cream
