DIY Halloween Haunted Dollhouse

Okay. I am already neglecting my idea for scary Halloween DIYs. This haunted dollhouse might not be creepy, but it sure is my kind of DIY Halloween project. This dollhouse makes a great piece of decoration, but during Halloween it just looked a little too cute. A little to… non-Halloween. That needed to change, and with a few little adjustments you turn your cute little dollhouse into a perfect Halloween haunted house!

DIY Halloween

IT’S HALLOWEEN TIME! Last year I made quite a few DIY Halloween projects, but almost all of them were cute. Not this year. This year I am trying to make my DIYs more creepy, scary, spooky. Let me be honest here: I HATE spooky stuff. I don’t ever watch horror films and you can scare me very easily. Don’t. Please. Somehow I did really enjoy making these bloody bookmarks, so maybe.. somewhere deep inside… I have a little creepy side.

DIY Efteling Favorite-Ride

There is one themepark in The Netherlands, where I’ll never get bored. The Efteling. The map alone can actually make me a giddy, happy girl! And because the park continues to get bigger and bigger; it’s never a bad idea to ‘save’ your favorite rides. That way you’ll never forget your personal favorites, There is this part where they portray fairytales and I ALWAYS seem to miss a few. With these small park map bulletin boards, you’ll always find you’re favorite spots. And once you get home… This is the perfect souvenir!

Sprinkle Icing Croissants

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! And everyone should start their birthday with a lovely festive breakfast. Croissants are my personal favourite day-starters, so they needed to be included. A croissant on it’s own might not be festive enough, but throw in a swirl of icing and a few colourful sprinkles and there you have it:. The most festive breakfast in the world!

DIY Emoji Conversation Cards

Parties where guests don’t know each other can be quite awkward. And as the host, you don’t want that to happen. Right?! I always get chills during weird silences, so I am always trying to find little ways to prevent that from happening. The best idea I came up with is putting the conversation topics right under the nose of your guests, and to add a little challenge to the conversation, you make emoji conversation cards. Before they have even unraveled the actual question, you’ll all have finished your cake.

DIY Disney Princess Cutlery Kit

Disney, Disney. Disney. I am a HUGE Disney fan and so, if I ever get to have a themeparty, I definitely want a Disney one! You all know my cutlery bar, but for this celebration I wanted to make my cutlery a little more personal. Personal party cutlery kits. Disney ones obviously! And Disney princesses are the perfect girly, pink touch! I might be celebrating my 22th birthday this year, but sometimes I still feel like a 3-year old.

Checklist for kids birthday parties

HELLO SEPTEMBER! The 9th month of the year is my birthday month, which means that the DIYs this month will all be in birthday party mode! Maybe turning 22 is a bit too old for a proper kids birthday party, but there are a few things I loved as a kid, and still love now… A thema party for example! I never had a real theme birthday fest before, and though I never missed it as a child, I kinda do miss it now. So. To prevent the current youth from having a lack of theme parties, I created this checklist for kids birthday parties. No reason to not go for the most CRAZY AWESOME themes now.

Favourite Coffee Table Books

I love keeping personal favourites on my coffee table, and there are only a few things that I love more than books. So, ofcourse I keep a few books on there. Also, I am hoping to improve the bookworld by getting everyone to read more, and one of the best ways to do that is in times of an akward silence or boredom. So my coffee table is filled with scented candles, little Disney figurines and my favourite coffee table books!
