{DIY} decorative glass bottles

April 1st, 2014|Categories: crafts, diy|Tags: , , , , , |1 Comment

 I wanted to share this quick and easy little way to decorate those popular glass milk bottles {or mason jars with handles or anything glass really – let your creativity run wild!} with something we probably don’t think much of {except during back to school time where most of us probably really don’t like it} – contact paper.I shared this photo a couple of months ago of some back to school afternoon tea prep for my kids and so many of you asked where I got our apple milk bottles so I thought I’d […]

eye see you Halloween cookie pops

October 25th, 2013|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , |1 Comment

My kiddos have been asking for Oreo pops for a while now and to be honest it’s probable been a year or more since I have made them! I am going to make some pumpkin ones again for Halloween this year but I thought I would make these cookie pops up quickly today as an end of week after school treat for them. These are a little quicker than my Oreo pops and I can just make a few at a time instead of a whole batch.To make the cookie pops you will need:OreosWhite […]

{printable} Halloween bat faces

October 22nd, 2013|Categories: crafts, printables|Tags: , |0 Comments

Hi everyone! After sharing our Halloween countdown I had a lot of people ask about our bat faces and where we got them from! I had originally made them as a printable to share on the blog but hadn’t gotten around to posting them and thought I’d leave it for this year but so many requests for them mean I’m popping them up! :o} We did handprints as I love any reason to record the size of my kids handprint at any given holiday or occasion. It’s so nice to look back on them when we […]

{printable} halloween countdown

October 13th, 2013|Categories: printables|Tags: , |1 Comment

We love Halloween at our house and it’s always been a big thing for me having grown up with it. Our house was known as ‘that house’ on our street in America as there was always a full sized witch or goblin or mummy out in our front yard that we had swept all the autumn leaves up for and packed into garbage bags that my Mum then assembled and dressed up in costume. I remember her even hooking lights and a stereo up to it one year so it would make some freaky […]

halloween treats

October 25th, 2011|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , |8 Comments

We have been busy making all sorts of Halloween treats here. Way too many to devote a post each to seeing as Halloween is in 6 days so I thought I’d put them all here in one post :o} Hope you don’t mind the Halloweeny overload. 
We dipped oval shaped cookies {made from our basic cookie dough recipe} into white chocolate. We also drizzled white chocolate all over to make some of the cookies look like a Mummy. We used dark chocolate bits for the eyes. As these cookies are quite soft it was easy […]

some easy halloween fun

October 11th, 2011|Categories: crafts|Tags: , |6 Comments

I know it’s not something widely celebrated in Australia, but I am a Halloween lover and I grew up with it, and so in our house we have a little bit of fun with it. 
So I’m sharing a couple of really easy Halloweeny crafts we’ve done so far. 
1. Egg carton spiders.

We just cut out some little egg carton bits and painted them black. 
We hole punched 4 holes in each side {look closely they are totally not lined up but it doesn’t matter}
and then Noah threaded pipe cleaner legs through. 
We then glued googly eyes {I […]

Salt Dough Pumpkins

Ok, Halloween stuff will be over soon. But we just had so much fun I thought I’d share another thing we did.I love salt dough {but my current recipe isn’t that flash, anyone have a great one they could share?}I used our pumpkin cookie cutter {same one I used for the iced sugar cookies for the party} and made these little pumpkins. I just coloured the dough orange with some food colouring, and made a little bit of it brown too for the pumpkin stems. We made quite a few of these, and there was […]

Halloween Buffet Table

November 3rd, 2010|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , |5 Comments

It’s taken me a while to get back here to post photos of our Halloween Buffet Table. We had about 15 kids here {kids from my son’s Kindy class and some of their siblings + my 2 stepkiddos} for Halloween. All the little kiddies were 4 and under!For most of them this was their first taste of Halloween fun! I think some parents were a little apprehensive, thinking it would be all scary and gory. Most didn’t know that you can dress your child in anything! It doesn’t have to be scary, a witch, vampire […]
