Super easy way to spread Halloween cheer

Ok..I know it's not like spreading holiday cheer...
but to me, sharing candy is sorta the same thing :)

Maybe some of you have done this before...maybe not.  Either way, I have found 3 too cute (free) printables if you want to 'BOO' your neighbors!!   Here's the secretly take some treats to your friends/neighbors.  
Leave them one of these signs (& the instructions). 
Good, clean (tasty) fun!

I came across this adorable idea from The TomKat Studio.  I instantly fell in love with it (then was ticked I didn't think of it myself) & knew I had to print it right away!  So I did. 

I was all set..then I found an equally adorable BOO sign at Anders Ruff.  
I knew I had to have this one too.  So I do.
You'll hate yourself if you don't spend some time at this site....GORGEOUS!

As if those 2 weren't adorable enough...
look at this BOO I found at Moo Moo's & Tutus.
I mean..come on, candy corn?!!?  So stinkin' cute! may have guessed  - I have this one also :)

So now I have 3 different BOO's :)
Since I have so many of these cute little signs, 
I need some cute little containers for my treats.
Luckily, I've saved a few empty (cleaned) peanut butter jars.  
Here's what I did:  
1. spray painted the lid.  2. cut out some vinyl letters using my Cricut.  *any sticky letters or even Sharpie marker would be as cute*.  3. added some Halloween-y ribbon & tada........

*any candy will work..I just happened to have a bunch of m&m's :)

October starts tomorrow...
so if I know where you live, you may be on my 'to BOO' list!
(sorry, I had to)

Cute post Staci!! I've been doing this tradition for 14 years now with my girls! (WOW! crazy). Here's my post from last year:

One of the things I quickly learned doing this is that a lot of people end up photocopying the flyer in B&W to be able to continue to spread the fun without using a lot of their own printer ink. Or, they end up creating their own - sometimes even handmade. It's a lot of fun...something the girls enjoy and look forward to every year!! (Especially when we dress up in camouflage)!! *wink*
