Halloween has got to be the best holiday of the year. For one night, you get to be anything you can imagine and no one will even think twice about it. Why not bring out your bad side this year and dress up like a vivacious villain? Get your kids in on it, too, so that you can all be unique as you walk the streets in search of the houses with the best candy. And if you’re looking for easy sewing projects that are also a blast, you can’t beat a DIY Halloween costume.
