So we threw a little shindig for the little man for Halloween. We invited all of his friends and cousins, had a bon fire, played games, and gave out little treat bags. Here are some of the crafty things I did for the party...
These were the biggest hit on the snack table. They are made of marshmallows, black icing, pretzel sticks, and spray green food coloring. I couldn't for the life of me find the spray food coloring until I went to Hob Lob which was the last place on my list. I just stuck the marshmallows on bamboo skewers when I sprayed them which made the process a lot cleaner!
I also made some recycled crayons for the treat bags. I also included Halloween erasers, and pencils. Not super exciting for the kids but I figured they all had enough candy! These were made with jello molds which I found very difficult to work with. I finally tried this process which worked the best...
I sprayed the molds, placed the broken crayon pieces in them, and filled the pan with about 1/2 in of water. Then I simmered the water for about 5 minutes. I am not sure what the long term effect would be on the molds but I only needed a couple more.
I usually have a plain black G hanging above the bookshelf but I decided to make a spooky one. For this I just decoupaged some scrap book paper to the letter.
Some knitted pumpkins, I tried a different variation of stitches on each one but I really like how they all turned out.
And some spoooky paper towel ghosts...lol! All in all the party was really fun and we will be doing it every year, I am sure!
