October means one thing here at Paper Source— Countdown to Halloween! This haunting holiday presents great crafting opportunities that are scary, spooky and kooky… which is the perfect recipe for fun in our book! Here are a few of our favorite Halloween ideas to get you ready to celebrate the tricks and treats of the season.

Get Your Stoop Spooktacular: Ways to Prep for Trick or Treaters

Whether or not you have kids in your home, trick or treating can seem daunting. If you’re planning a night out with your kids or prepping your home for visitors at your doorstep, here’s how to make October 31st a fun and easy event!

Before your trick or treaters arrive, make sure your door is prepped and ready for the little guests. Adding pumpkins to a stoop is sure to make your house more inviting. Here’s a fun alternative to carving (that takes less skill and time!): Sticky Pumpkin Face Kit.

Not feeling like you want to dress up? Don a mask from our Halloween Masks Kit for an easy way to entertain the kids. You can switch them out through the night to keep things interesting.

Time to give out treats! We love the idea of using treat bags (pictured below) to hold fun-sized candy bars or an assortment of goodies. Not only is this packaging festive, but it gives kids an extra little surprise when they open them at home. BONUS: You’ll curb the urge kids have to sift through your basket to find the best stuff!

Try our bags with stamps, stickers, or washi tape (or your own combination of the three).

Bootiful Decorations

Ready to throw a Halloween hangout? Here are some ideas to get your space looking ready to fright and delight.

Set the tone with garlands, which can be placed across a mantle or on a wall. These adornments are sure to spook-up your space.

If you need more decorations, try these Sticky Bats, which are re-positionable and come in a ‘colony’ (pack of 16).

Need to serve up some drinks? We’re drinking up this creepy Kool-Aid. Ad when you’re serving it up, instead of plain Solo cups, try using Chalk stickers so guests can get creative and doodle or write their character name for the night.

And finally, you might need some tasty treats to send guests home with (or serve up right at the party). How yummy do these popcorn balls look? Dress them up with your favorite Halloween-colored toppings.
