Crafty Tuesday - Halloween Tricks or Treats

>> Tuesday, October 27, 2009

 I have been working on this edition of Crafty Tuesday for quite a few days.  That doesn't mean the crafts are difficult though, in fact they are really easy! And so fun and cute too!  So let's get right to it...



Halloween Mummies - Bub will be sharing these with all his classmates & friends.  I also put a few in each of the teacher's baskets. He and I made these in under an hour, it was a lot of fun!

Recipe:
Mini Hershey bars
white crepe paper
googly eyes

I took a serrated knife and cut a roll of crepe paper in half so I had 2 skinny rolls. I found this made for a much "prettier" mummy.  Wrap a piece of crepe paper around the chocolate bar and secure the end with some sort of adhesive.  Attach the googly eyes with tacky glue - do not use a hot glue gun or the eyes won't wiggle. :)



Teacher's Halloween gift basket - includes a few packages of Hot Apple Cider mix, a package of homemade caramel corn, a Coffin that contains a few mummies, and a couple of cake pops will be added once we make them.

Halloween box - Instructions for this box can be found here. Each of my baskets were made from a single 12x12 sheet of Stampin' Up! Ghostly Greetings DSP.



  Stampin' Up! Coffins - printable template can be found here

I also made each of the kid's teachers a Halloween card to match their Halloween treat basket. The cards were fairly easy and quick to put together.  They were CASED from some cards found on Split Coast Stampers.  I have no idea now who made them, but whoever you are thank you for the great idea!




 Inside each card it says: 
Scary, Scary
Screamie, Screamie
Happy, Happy
Halloweenie!

Ingredients for the cards:
Paper is all Stampin' Up!
 - Kiwi Kiss (also this ink)
 - Pumpkin Pie (also this ink)
 - Basic Black (also this ink)
 - Ghostly Greetings DSP
Stamp Sets are both Stampin' Up!
 - Batty for you
 - Eat, Drink & Be Scary!
Embossed Paper is done by using the Sizzix BIGkick and the Cuttlebug embossing folder D'vine Swirl

What are you making for Halloween crafts with your kids?  Are you making anything for the kids to take to school or for their teachers?

Fantastic! :) We've done something similar before with toilet rolls (cut in half and added a base) - makes a small holder for sweets. Or you could do a larger one for a pencil holder.
