Here is Jason's Pumpkin from this year. He decided to make a BAT on his, even though I said it looks like a dragon! lol
And here is mine. I went for a funky pumkin with a star & moon for the eyes.
Here they are together glowing in our kitchen.
One of the biggest hits of the night were my Popcorn Scary Hands! They were so easy to make and very inexpensive. My mom actually used to make them for all of our Halloween parties at school growing up and they had such sentimental value-plus who couldn't resist popcorn & candy corn?! I had good intentions to make candied apples for our friends' kids, but never quite fit it in with all of the other excitement! Here is a quick overview of how I made them...
What you need:
1 package of Candy Corn
Clear plastic gloves (no powder & very thin)
1 box popcorn
twist ties or ribbon
Spider rings for fingers
Pop the popcorn & place in a bowl. Take a glove and add candy corn into the fingers with the tip of the corn facing outward like a finger nail. Then, take the popcorn & stuff the glove. This can take a while so allow yourself plenty of time for this project! After the hand is stuffed with popcorn, tie off the top. Then add a cute little spider ring to finish the look.
Just becase it says "fat free food" on the bag, doesn't mean this treat is good for you! haha!
Creepy hands crawling their way into the bowl!
The finished product.
Now on to the next holiday of Thanksgiving! I'll be posting my favorite thanksgiving dishes & recipes for each soon! Yesterday we did our annual Friday trip to Little Rock and went to Holiday House & Silks-a-Bloom. Now I'm all geared up for Christmas. I even got a new tree this year & I can't WAIT to start decorating my new house for the Holidays. More to come on that later....
