Test Tube Slime with Printable

All the fun (for the kids) and hardly any work! Use them for favors, in place of trick or treat candy, 
or as part of your BOO basket for your friends!
I grabbed these fun test tubes from the Target "dollar" section, and the slime is from over in their actual Halloween section.  I needed about 1 and a half of the slime to fill up these tubes.

Once you wiggle your slime into your tubes, make sure those corks are on nice and tight.
Either print the labels on sticker sheet or use a little bit of glue to spread a thin layer on the back and stick onto those tubes.  Be sure to get all those bubbles out.

If you want to add a little something to the tubes, try washi tape on the top or a little bakers twine wrapped around the cork. If you're using them as favors, it'd be the perfect way to attach a tag.

Save the printable below and get ready to slime!

BOO Felt Hanging Banner

A Halloween felt banner? Could 3 words go together more perfectly?! It's easier than you think, and makes a great addition inside, or hung in place of a wreath on your front door.  And since it's officially Fall, it's perfectly acceptable for me to start sharing Halloween posts now, enjoy!
 Gather your supplies:
A dowel, felt in your colors choice, adhesive felt in a contrasting color, twine, & 
optional 2 felt balls for added cuteness. 
 To use the letters I did, make sure you're cutting your banner edge landscape so it's wide enough.
 After you've cut your dowel to the right size, tie your bakers twine on either side.  This is also the time to tie on those felt balls if you're using them

 Carefully glue a straight line on your felt and press your dowel onto it. Set it aside and start working on your letters! I like doing the banner first, so I know exactly where I need my letters.
 Similar to the Felt Pennants tutorial, trace your letters onto the BACK (paper side) of your 
adhesive felt.  Make sure that B is backwards!

 Once you've decided on your placement, carefully remove the paper backing and apply your letters.
 You did it! So easy, the hardest part may be deciding where to hang it now!

And of course, you could always flip the color scheme & make the banner white and the letters black, or throw in some color! Have a spooktacular time with it! No...ew...I actually hate that saying.  Despise it. It's makes me twitch for some reason.  Just go make a BOO banner, k?
Save the image below to use the letters for your own sign!
