7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

One of my favourite holidays is fast approaching and the one thing everyone will need is a costume.  With Halloween being on a Friday this year, there are likely to be parties for young and old.  Not only do I hate spending a fortune on a costume, I don’t like how the store bought costumes all look the same and everyone has them.  I prefer the good, old fashioned, homemade costume and I have rounded up some great ideas for young and old to make your own costume this year.  It will save you money and you will be the hit of the party!

1. Smurf

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

This is a costume that would look adorable on a baby but really any aged person could wear.  I found it over at Tip Junkie and it is very easy to make.  Just use some white tights, a blue shirt and make a white hat and ball tail.  If you want to be Smurfette, just add a yellow wig.

2. Octopus

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

This is such a fun costume for kids , but really can be for someone of any age.  At Giggles Galore, they give you step by step direction on how to make the legs and the hat.  You can choose any colour you want and just match it to a shirt you have in your closet.

3. Prego Pasta Sauce

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

I love this idea for a pregnant woman.  I was huge when I was pregnant and it is not easy to figure out a costume.  With this one from Cuffed for Life, you can wear your jeans and a red shirt and all you need to do is buy some felt for the details on the front.  You can add some plastic cutlery to your hair for a fun touch as well.

4. Cactus

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

I just love this costume and how easy it is to make!  All you need is green sweat pants and a green shirt to wear and a box of whites straws.  You pin the straws on all over for the prickles and you are an instant cactus. (Idea from Inventor Spot)

5. Beanie Babies

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

This adult costume is perfect for a party or the bar.  It is a more imaginative version of the same old skimpy cat, mouse, and other animal costumes.  You can still dress in your sexy Halloween animal costume but by adding the big heart tag in the front, (with some simple cardboard) you have a creative fun spin!  I found this costume idea over at Her Campus.

6. Smores Family

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

This is such an awesome idea for a family to do together. For the actual easy directions on how to make each piece, they are posted up on Cheerios & Lattes.

What are you dressing up as this year for Halloween Moosers?

Free Arts & Crafts Experience @ Toys R Us Canada

Posted by on September 19, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Free Arts & Crafts Experience @ Toys R Us Canada

If you have a son or daughter that is into arts & crafts, you may want to check out this free event tomorrow.  Starting tomorrow September 20th, head into your local Toys R Us Canada location and you will be able to participate for free in their Arts and Crafts Experience.

This free event will be held at participating Toys R Us Canada locations from 10am until 4pm starting tomorrow September 20th and ending November 2nd.  The dates will vary with the individual stores from a Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday depending on the location. All of them will have the same supplies and the same time however, from 10am until 4pm on their scheduled day.

You will not have to purchase anything to attend this event and all of the craft items will be supplied to you. This is the perfect event to spend some quality time as a family and have a lot of fun doing it.  The best part, it’s free!

This free event will include three different activities:

  • Beados
  • Glitzi Globes
  • Bloom Pops

If you are unfamiliar with these craft products, you are not alone because I had no clue either what they were. I had a look at all of these arts and crafts products on the Toys R Us website and was pleasantly surprised at what I found.

The Glitzi Globes are fun globes that your child can create themselves with glitter and toys. The Beados are popular with boys and girls and are beads that stick together to create anything you would like really.  They tap into your child’s creativity. Lastly, we have the Bloom Pops.  These I would say are geared more towards girls but are still fun to explore and put together. Create jewellery, gardens and figures with the Bloom Pops.

Even though it is open to join until 4pm it is my experience that these free events do fill up fast. Even though they have not advertised it, they usually have a limited number of spots available during the day.  It is best to get there early just in case to ensure your spot for this free fun event.

6 Ideas to Repurpose Sweaters

Posted by on September 18, 2014 at 8:00 PM

6 Ideas to Repurpose Sweaters

I have already started going through my fall and winter clothing with the cooler weather fast approaching and I have noticed something.  I have way too many sweaters that I never wear or are outdated or don’t fit anymore.  Sometimes I donate old clothing, sometimes I give it away to friends and family, but this time I wanted to see if I could tap into my creative side and do something with these sweaters.  I could not believe the fun ideas I came across for old sweaters.

I actually came across hundreds of ideas as to what to do with old sweaters so I picked out the top six that I found the most useful and the easiest to do.  Not everyone is the craftiest person and these six ideas are something anyone and everyone can do.

1. Make Mittens

6 Ideas to Repurpose Sweaters

This idea is most likely the easiest one I have found.  All you have to do is trace your hands onto your sweater and cut out the mitten shapes then sew it together. How simple is that!  This idea can be found at PinLaVie.

2. Make Leg Warmers

6 Ideas to Repurpose Sweaters

This legwarmer (or faux leg warmer) can be found over at Listotic.  You can make either a full legwarmer or just a faux one to go under a cute pair of boots.  These leg warmers tend to cost a lot in stores so making one yourself is a great option.

3. Make Christmas Stockings

6 Ideas to Repurpose Sweaters

I am a huge Christmas nut so this crafty idea is right up my alley.  You can take any old sweater and make it into a beautiful stocking to hang on the chimney. This idea can be found on Extraordinary Day.

4. Make a Quilt

6 Ideas to Repurpose Sweaters

This is one of the harder re-purpose ideas to do but not impossible for the non crafty person.  With this idea, you can take a few different sweaters and make a giant quilt.  You can use your kids baby sweaters for a personal touch and more of a memory quilt which is a great idea as well. Check out Newly Mynted for the design.

5. Make a Pillow

6 Ideas to Repurpose Sweaters

Making a pillow is much the same idea as the quilt but a lot easier and less sweaters.  This particular style of pillow can be found displayed on Infarrantly Creative but there are a ton of different designs if you want to check out Pinterest.

6. Make a Purse or a Bag

6 Ideas to Repurpose Sweaters

What woman doesn’t love purses and bags, especially when they are free!  This is such a great idea to take an old sweater and fashion it into a great bag.  One design you can use can be found on the blog Duwop Designs.

What do you do with your old sweaters Moosers?

PeekaPak Canada Promo Code: Get 40% Off Your First Pack

Posted by on September 17, 2014 at 2:30 PM

PeekaPak Canada Promo Code: Get 40% Off Your First Pack

How are you all faring with school back in? In our house we’ve already got three of us sick (1 kid and 2 adults), a little bit of homework and a few tears and whines of “I don’t want to go to school today!”. While I’m kind of a scheduler of the after school time, I also make sure to schedule down time for us, but sometimes even with this, my kids need a little bit of an organized activity sometimes. These PeekaPaks look great for this. With this coupon, you’ll get 40% off your first pack, when you buy a monthly or yearly subscription, which is a savings of $10.

Click here to shop @ Peekapak.com now

  • Coupon Code: BACKTOSCHOOLPAK
  • Discount: $10 off
  • Expiry: 21st September 2014

You might be wondering what exactly a PeekaPak is. It is basically a monthly box filled with goodies for learning and fun. What’s exciting is that you don’t have to do any planning, you just hit the mailbox, get your box and let your kids take over. Inside, you’ll get a storybook and crafts, plus all the materials you’ll need for those crafts. I totally love this idea, and with three kids at home, I don’t have to pay full price for all of my kids as there are sibling packs for a reduced price as well.

You can choose from different membership offers, like three months for $71.97, which comes down to $61.97 with the coupon. As you go up in how many months you’d like to subscribe for, your price per pack decreases. For example, the six-month membership per pack price is $21.99, but the yearly subscription per pack price is $19.99. This prices all go down once you factor in the coupon code.

If you’d just like to try one month to start, you can do that too and normally you’d pay $24.99, but the coupon gets this price down to $14.99, which is awesome!

Shipping is included in your cost, so there is no need to worry about extra charges. If you want to come back next month after trying this product and loving it, check for more great Peekapak coupons in the forum.

Michaels Canada Coupons: 5 Printables Up To 65% Off

Posted by on August 29, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Michaels Canada Coupons: 5 Printables Up To 65% Off

Michaels Canada has printable coupons that will save you money on your purchases every week. Normally, they have three or four of them to take advantage of that start at about 25% off and go up from there.  This week, in honor of back to school, they have five different coupons and they range from 40% up to 65% off the regular prices.

Here is a look at the printable coupons offered this week:

  • Get 40% off regular prices artistic paint, brushes, pencils, pastels & markers
  • Get 40% off regular priced Jolee’s 3D Stickers & Embellishments
  • Get 40% off one regular priced item
  • Get 65% off Renaissance Custom Framing
  • Earn 5x reward Air Miles on purchase of $40+

It is pretty rare for them to offer a coupon for 65% off, so this is a really good one this week.  Additionally, their coupons for regular priced items are usually only 25% off, so saving 40% off any one regular priced item is a great little bonus before school starts.

I normally wouldn’t be buying all of my kids back to school items at Michaels because some of their supplies are priced higher than other stores.  I do, however, like their selection of art supplies for holidays and that is what I will be focusing my shopping on this time around. They already have items out for Halloween and I can’t wait to get a head start on some fun crafts with my boys for decorating.

You will be able to use all of these Michaels Canada coupons at the same time or just one of them if that’s all you want to use.

Additionally, there are two options to get these coupons. You will be able to print them off or have them scanned from your smartphone. Download the free Michaels Canada app and you will have them handy on your phone, rather than having to print them off. Either way, you can use each coupon one time only.

7 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Cribs

Posted by on August 28, 2014 at 8:00 PM

7 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Cribs

I love to find uses for older items and furniture around my house. I had two babies back to back, which means I needed two cribs at the same time because they were so close in age. What are you supposed to do with two cribs once you are done with them? I don’t plan on having another baby, and I know we won’t get much back if we were to just sell them online second hand, so I took to the internet with a mission to find some other uses for them.

I couldn’t believe how many awesome ideas I found online for old cribs, and almost all of them were fairly inexpensive. I chose seven of the best and inexpensive ideas to share with our Moosers who may have a baby crib in storage as well and just don’t know what to do with it.

1. Kid’s Desk

7 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Cribs

I just love this idea because the crib basically grows with your child. It stays in their room for a little desk or art center and it looks so cool and unique. I found this idea on www.babble.com. Just take off the one side of the crib, paint it, and add some hooks and a chair. Very simple and looks great!

2. Kid’s Sitting Area

7 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Cribs

How awesome is this idea to turn a crib into a kid’s bench and table for a fun corner sitting area for kids? You will find the step by step details posted on Myrepurposedlife.com.

3. Storage Bench

7 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Cribs

This idea was featured on the blog MyRepurposedLife and I just love it.  You can use it for the entry way of your house to keep shoes and items hidden away.

4. Chalkboard Easel

7 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Cribs

This idea is probably one of the easiest ideas, and I would have never thought of it myself.  Take the ends of the crib, paint them with some chalkboard paint, add some wheels and a chain and voila- an easel! This idea from indulgy.com is perfect for any household with kids.

5. Jewellery and Hair Organizer

7 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Cribs

This is another idea I wouldn’t have thought of but I will be doing. It is so simple and easy to make a hanging jewellery or hair organizer for your bedroom or closet. You can even hold items like belts and scarves on it as well. All of the instructions are posted on Cottageinstincts.blogspot.ca.

6. Front Porch Swing

7 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Cribs

This is probably my favourite idea because I have always wanted a front porch swing, but they are just so expensive.  All of the details on how to make it can be found at www.decozilla.com.

7. Laundry Room Dryer

7 Awesome Ways To Upcycle Cribs

This idea uses just one side of the crib (or more if you want to hang more clothes I guess). It is very straightforward to set up, and so practical as well. This idea can be found on the website www.lifeinapinkhouse.com.

Back to School Stationery Deals Roundup

Posted by on August 20, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Back to School Stationery Deals Roundup

I was shopping yesterday for some groceries and ended up finding some great back to school stationery deals that I thought I would share with you. This is the perfect time of year to get back to school supplies for your kids (or yourself maybe) because there are so many sales happening.

Here is a look at some of the awesome deals you will be able to get right now:

Walmart:

I have already found and bought some incredible deals from Walmart Canada for myself and my kids. Quite possibly the best deal I found was this Crayola coloured pencils that were $4.97 and are now on sale for just $0.97 each.  I ended up grabbing about 10 of them.  Why would I grab so many you ask?  Simple, grab bags for birthday parties for my son in a few months.  I always try to think ahead at what I can use these deals for.

Another awesome deal I found was this pack of Crayola crayons that were $2 each and are now on sale for just $0.25!  That is a crazy deal!  It is so good in fact I grabbed 20 of them!  I got enough for birthday parties, school, Christmas stockings and shoe boxes for Christmas for donations.

If you are looking for pens, you can get these Paper Mate Write Bros pack of pens for just $1 when the regular price was $1.97.  It is 10 pens in total. All of these deals will get free shipping so you wont have to leave your house to shop and you won’t have to pay for shipping.  It is a win/win situation.

Staples:

They have a lot of back to school deals on right now and they have actually made shopping online even easier.  They have categories for ages groups and the school supplies they will need.

You can get these BIC permanent markers that were $8.49 and are now just $5.49. They also have pencil boxes that were $2.96 on sale for just $1.92 each.

As for the cost of shipping, it will depend on how much your order is.  Staples offers free in-store pick up and free shipping on orders over $45. Orders under $45 are shipped at $15. If you are just grabbing some small supplies, I would suggest the in-store pick up.

Michaels:

For Michaels, the first place to start is actually on the Bargainmoose coupon forum.  You can click through and see all of the printable coupon offered each week.  You will want to shop in store for them and when you pair some of their deals with their coupons, you can save huge.  This week, their printable coupons are worth up to 65% off the regular prices.

What back to school deals have you been finding?

Upcycle Your Cans 6 Different Ways

Posted by on August 15, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Upcycle Your Cans 6 Different Ways

I have a family of four and we seem to go through a lot of canned items.  We have soup cans, pasta sauce cans, paint cans, bean and chickpea cans and many more cans that I just don’t know what to do with. Yes, you can recycle them, but when I was washing them to recycle them one day, I realized they don’t look half bad once the label is off and they are clean. They are the perfect size for many things around the house. I headed to my go-to place for DIY ideas and found some great uses for all of my empty cans on Pinterest.

1. DIY Keepsake Can

Upcycle Your Cans 6 Different Ways

I love this idea that deliciously organized had for adding your family pictures to the soup cans and using them as a type of keepsake can. They look beautiful and you could do this with any size of can depending on the items you would like to add.  You could even do it for your kids with a picture of their favourite cartoon character or super hero.

2. DIY Lanterns

Upcycle Your Cans 6 Different Ways

You will see a step by step layout of how to make these awesome lanterns from any type of can you may have laying around at home on the blog Grow Creative. My sister used this idea and had these for her wedding to light the gardens and pathways at night. It was beautiful. Afterward, she used them outside at her house and gave a bunch of them away as well.  They were free and pretty decorations for her wedding.

3. DIY Flower Vases

Upcycle Your Cans 6 Different Ways

This is such a simple and easy craft to do to upcycle your cans.  Take any can, and take either ribbon or rope and just hot glue it wrapped around. You can add a plastic insert or bag if you want to use real flowers and don’t want the can to rust inside from the water. This idea from ordinary things made extraordinary can be used in any home. I think they look very pretty and you can change up the idea according to your personal taste.

4. DIY Bird Feeder

Upcycle Your Cans 6 Different Ways

I can’t wait to do this craft from plum adorable with my kids next week. All it requires is some paint, ribbon and a wooden stick.  Just have your kids paint a soup can, glue gun some ribbon around it and add a stick on the inside for the birds to stand on.  You can hang them from your fence in the back yard or a tree and put some seeds in it.  This is such a pretty and easy craft to do with kids for the back yard.

5. DIY Cookie Cutters or Cake Pans

Upcycle Your Cans 6 Different Ways

This DIY idea from Thekitchenpaper.com is a little harder than the others mentioned but still fairly easy. They give you a step by step plan on how to take any can and turn it into a cookie cutter or baking pan template.  This would be great to use for birthday parties!

6. DIY Makeup Containers

Upcycle Your Cans 6 Different Ways

I found this idea on Pinterest that someone must have posted themselves, because there is no link to a website.  It looks very simple to do though.  Much like the keepsake can, you can decorate any can how you would like and use it to hold your makeup brushes and supplies. I like this idea because it will keep the quality of the brush intact, instead of laying them down.

Do you have some other great uses for cans around your house?  Which ones do you want to try out?

6 Ideas to Upcycle Shoe Boxes

Posted by on August 14, 2014 at 8:00 PM

6 Ideas to Upcycle Shoe Boxes

I’ve got a four year old daughter who is growing like wildfire and accordingly, getting through a LOT of pairs of shoes. As a result, we seem to have an extremely large number of empty shoe boxes hidden in the dark and damp corners of our garage. I was browsing pinterest and I saw an idea for making a shoe box in to an organizer, so I started googling for more awesome ideas to upcycle shoe boxes. Here are seven ideas for you:

1. DIY Shoe Box Organizer

6 Ideas to Upcycle Shoe Boxes

Here at UsefulDIY.com, you can see a quick tutorial about how to upcycle that old shoe box into a nifty organizer, for storing your various bits and bobs. As shown in the piccie, you could use it for stationery, or maybe even for the kids to compartmentalise and store various toys; Lego, dolls, bricks, etc.

2. Funky Storage

6 Ideas to Upcycle Shoe Boxes

Ok, this idea isn’t much of a stretch to be honest, but it still looks fantastic. Cover the old shoe boxes in fancy and colourful fabrics, and just use the shoe boxes for storage. The range of varied patterns and vibrant colours look super and really brighten up a storage area. There’s a tutorial here on Youtube if you need some help with it.

3. Jewellery Hanger

6 Ideas to Upcycle Shoe Boxes

Cover a shoe box lid in canvas (or any fabric you want), pop in some push-pins, hang it on the wall – for a cheap and cheerful jewellery hanger. Find the tutorial here on Homeawaitsus.

4. Wall Art

6 Ideas to Upcycle Shoe Boxes

Cover your shoe boxes in vibrant wallpaper samples or even fabric, and mount them up on the wall in various positions, as illustrated in the image above. It gives an inexpensive and colourful focal point for a bare wall. This DIY task doesn’t have to be done with just shoe box lids, you could use cereal boxes, any cardboard items you have available. The different sized boxes would give extra depth and contouring for a stunning finish. Read a bit more here on Crafts & Coffee.

5. Drawer Dividers

6 Ideas to Upcycle Shoe Boxes

Cut to size, you can use empty shoe boxes as handy drawer dividers. Why spend a fortune on the ready-made ones from Ikea? Just get out your scissors and snip away (found here on apartmenttherapy).

6. Ribbon Dispenser

6 Ideas to Upcycle Shoe Boxes

If you are in the habit of using ribbon for present-wrapping, crafting, and any other activity, you’ll know how awkward it can be when you have a big box filled with tangled spools of random ribbon. You could use an old shoe box and turn it into a handy dispenser. While it’s not the exact tutorial pictured above, there’s a tutorial for a similar style here on Crabtree-creations.

Please let us know if you try any of these out – we’d like to hear about your results in the comments below. Have you upcycled your shoe boxes into anything fantastic?

Amazon Canada: 30% Off Melissa & Doug Art Supplies

Posted by on August 4, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Amazon Canada: 30% Off Melissa & Doug Art Supplies

If you are looking for back to school supplies or for some art supplies for your child, then you’ve come to the right place. I absolutely love Melissa and Doug art supplies and Amazon has them on for 30% off.

I can’t count the number of art items I have from the brand Melissa and Doug. I love the uniqueness of their sets and find everything really high quality. I find new art supplies is a great way to get kids excited about having to go back to school. I’m also looking for fun kits as things for my kids to do when they are camping or at the cottage. I like to have my quiet time reading while they have their quiet time making art.

Remember paint by number? How about the less messy sticker by number? Get the Melissa and Doug Peel and Press Sticker by Number flower garden fairy for only $7.36, with a regular price of $9.99.

While the sale says 30% off, some items are even more than that off the regular price. This Melissa and Doug portable light box is really cool, and looks perfect for using while on a road trip. It has a little portable desk, that fits perfectly in your child’s lap. It was $19.99, now $11.71.

If you are looking for something to do at a princess or other little girl party, you can’t beat paying only $3.99 for them to make this princess doll and take it home as a favour. It is an all-in-one kit, so you really just hand it to them and let them work their own magic. It has a regular price of $8.99, but paying the $4 price is perfect for 10 kids at a party.

My boys have done a Melissa and Doug paintable figurine and this dinosaur figurine kit is one they’d love to do. I like these because they are cute to display on a shelf after all their hard work is done. I don’t find ours ever looks like the picture on the box, but I love letting my kids be creative, messy and have fun when doing art, rather than be perfect. This item was $10.99, now only $6.39.

Shipping is free from Amazon once you’ve spent over $25 and since these items are all less than that, you’ll want to get a few to help save those costs. Twisting your rubber arm, aren’t I?

Michaels Canada Printables: 25% Off Everything & More

Posted by on July 12, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Michaels Canada Printables: 25% Off Everything & More

We haven’t written for a few months now about the weekly printable coupon offers for Michaels Canada because they have all been the same ones.  They haven’t switched them up much, so there was nothing to get excited about.  This time is different.  Michaels has three different coupons this week for up to 60% off and they are good ones.

Here is a look at the printable coupons offered this week:

  • Get 25% off your entire order
  • Get 40% off regular priced Jolee’s 3D Stickers & Embellishments
  • Get 60% off Modern day Designs Custom Framing

In my opinion, the best coupon this week is actually the lowest value one.  The 25% off everything store wide coupon is a huge discount when you really think about it, and that is probably why they do not do them too often.  You will see the 25% off one item, but it is once in a blue moon for the coupon to be valid on both regular priced items and sale items, and on everything instead of just one item.  I will be taking advantage of that one for sure!

There are always a few exclusions listed for their coupons that seem to be the same every week.  Make sure to read the fine print when you print them off so you know what they are.

I am already thinking ahead to school supplies and art supplies that my kids will be needing to use the 25% off coupon on. I am also looking to grab some fun activities for summer crafts for my boys that are inexpensive.

We will have all Michaels Canada coupons posted up on the Bargainmoose coupon forum.  As always, there are two options to get these coupons.  You will be able to print off these coupons or get them scanned from your smartphone.  Download the free Michaels Canada app and you will have them handy on your phone, rather than having to print them off. I prefer the free smart phone app because it saves me money on printing off my coupons.  Plus, I always seem to lose things in my wallet and purse so this eliminates that risk.

A lot of these coupons will be valid right into the month of July but a couple of them have exact dates you need to use them on.  For those ones, I like to mark them down on my calendar.  I often do this will my Shoppers Drug Mart coupons because I use them every chance I get.
