Vampire lollipops

 

These cute little vampires lollipops will make great party favors for your Halloween party — be sure to make plenty, they’ll fly off before you know it.

Be sure to visit all of our other ghostly craftsscary printablesfabulous costume ideas and these spook-tackular Halloween recipes! As well, explore our fall crafts, our great fall recipes and printable activities.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Red cellophane
  • Lollipops
  • Black felt
  • Twist ties
  • White address labels
  • Scissors
  • Peel and stick wiggle eyes
  • Pattern

 

How to make it:

  1. Using the pattern, cut capes (one for each lollipop) from black felt.
  2. Cut a piece of cellophane into a square, large enough to wrap around the head of the lollipop. (See photo.)
  3. Loosely wrap the cellophane around the lollipop and place the wrapped lollipop onto the felt cape. (See photo.)
  4. Wrap twist tie around both at the neck of the lollipop. (See photo.)
  5. Cut fangs from white address labels and stick to the front of the lollipop. Attach peel and stick wiggle eyes to the front of the lollipop. (See photo.)

Tips:

  1. To add some variety, try using different colors of cellophane such as orange, green, or purple.
  2. Bend the ends of the twist ties to look like bow ties.
  3. Try creepy eye Halloween stickers instead of wiggle eyes.

candle snuggie

well i’ve been seeing online alot of crochet project’s about cup hugs, cup cozies so i started doing one and it was to big for my cup so i went looking around the house for some different ways i can use this. and so i stuck it on one of my Yankee candles and it was perfect and gives it a cute look. I also was thinking you could put it on a  med size jar fill it with beads or plant stones and put your crochet hooks in there would be cute too . So let me know what you all think.

Recycled Jar Jack O’ Lanterns

 

pumpkin jars 1.jpg

 

I love to reuse my spaghetti sauce jars to create these beautiful pumpkin lights for All Hallow’s Eve! You can use different size jars to make a spooktacular display!

Ingredients:

Glass jar
Orange tissue paper
Black construction paper
Green acrylic paint
Decoupage glue
Paint brush
Scissors

Optional: other things to decorate, a hammer and nail to punch holes in the lid if you want to use the lid but light the candle inside.

Recipe:

Tear orange tissue paper and place glue in an easy to use container. You will be applying the tissue and glue with one hand and the other will be inside the jar.

If your hand is small enough, insert your non-dominant hand inside the jar and then use the other hand to coat the jar with decoupage glue. Lay the strips of orange paper over the jar. Glue and place the paper until the entire surface is covered. Go over the entire surface of the jar with one more thin layer of glue.

Allow to dry for a few hours. In the mean time, create your face with the black paper. When the orange layer is completely dry, glue the black paper on and decorate as you wish.

If you want, you can either paint the lip of the jar green for the stem or punch holes in the jar lid and paint that green. Either works fine!

When the jack o’lantern is completely dry (give it 24 hours after the last coat of glue) place a candle inside and light or place electric lights inside and plug in! Either one gives the pumpkin a lovely glow!
