6 HALLOWEEN FIREPLACE MANTELS

The carved flames on these pumpkins are stunning but easy enough to create yourself! The layered spooky framed art over the hearth makes this fireplace mantle fun and whimsical too.

All that glitters is the theme with this Halloween fireplace set up – including the black glitter painted skeleton. It totally works- when the lights go out everything will shimmer in the firelight and light up some candles at night for even more sparkle.

In case you have not noticed, the Halloween trend this year is pose-able skeletons. The human size skeletons are so versatile and you can really get creative with setting them up in funny scenes.

Halloween Ghost Lollipops

How to Make Halloween Ghost Lollipops – Quick & Easy Tutorial

I am sure you have seen these Halloween ghost lollipops on Pinterest and other websites but I wanted to share my sparkly version and the easy instructions for making these little adorable Halloween lollipop ghost treats!  Let’s get started! Gather your supplies.

SUPPLIES:

  • Scissors
  • Dum Dums suckers (or any brand of round suckers)
  • White Tissue Paper
  • Tulle Fabric (or any white fabric)
  • Baker’s Twine (or thin ribbon)
  • Stickles Glitter Glue (Black Diamond)

HOW TO:

Once you have all your supplies, this project only takes about 15 minutes to make 12 or so of these cute ghosts.  I promise, this project goes fast!  Which makes it a great treat if you are under the wire to get some favors or treats made for a Halloween classroom party!

Step 1:  Cut all your fabric and tissue paper into small rectangles, or you can cut them into perfect squares- I preferred mine to be a little uneven so they would look more like ghost sheets. Also, if you don’t have any white fabric or tulle, you can actually use white paper towels to make these as well.  Since I used a sheer sparkly tulle fabric, I wanted to cover the colorful Dum Dum wrappers, so I used two layers of tissue paper wrapped around my suckers first.  Also, cut your ribbon or baker’s twine into about 6 inch long strips.

Step 2:  Hold your sucker upright and lay your piece of cut fabric/tulle on top of the sucker. Once you have wrapped your Dum Dum top, cinch the fabric around the base of the sucker, where it meets the stick and hold firmly and lay your sucker flat and tie up the base with your ribbon or twine and tie tightly with a bow. I used a baker’s twine with a metallic silver ply, for an extra shimmer in the bow- but you can certainly use thin ribbon in any design or solid color.

I tied up all my suckers all at once to make the process go faster, before I started adding the faces.  You can actually give these little ghosts without faces too-

Step 3:  Next, uncap your Stickles glitter and add your two eyes and mouth to the front of each tied up sucker.

TIP:  I created my long faces of my ghosts by adding a large dot and then using the end of my Stickles tip, I pulled the glob of glue downward.  This gives your ghost faces a droopy and ghostlike appearance.

That’s it!  Three steps and you are done.  Let your Halloween ghost favors dry overnight and they are ready to go.  I love this project because there is no baking and no sewing and kids love them too.

These would look great poked into a Styrofoam block and displayed standing up, as cupcake toppers or fill up a Halloween decorated basket with these adorable ghosts.

Halloween Decorating With Balloons

HALLOWEEN PARTY DECORATIONS

Its October . . . and you know what that means?!  My favorite movie month! Yes, I love horror movies and everything scary in film. Maybe it is because it makes feel so alive to scream and jump at the movies! Ha!

The other reason I love October is because of Halloween.

  I want to share some creative ideas for decorating with balloons and the perk is all of these ideas are relatively inexpensive.  Balloons are always cheap and the best decoration for parties.  Balloons add height and balance to party tables but can also be painted, wrote on with Sharpie markers, and creatively arranged at any event.

5 Easy Ways To Spook Up Your Balloons At Your Halloween Party

This is my absolute favorite idea!  A letter banner and balloon combo- and to get your creative play on words in a fun letter banner, click here- Look What You Made Me Boo

If you like the idea of adding a Boo balloon to your banner and wall decor, they can be found the letter balloons here- [easyazon_link identifier=”B071GLBFVW” locale=”US” nw=”y” tag=”ymazonffiliac-20″]Foil Black BOO Halloween Letter Balloon[/easyazon_link]

How about this super easy craft project to turn your balloons into spiders that only require – black balloons and black crepe paper

How easy is this- grab a black Sharpie marker and draw your own adorable cute faces and Jack-O-Lanterns on your balloons!  If you lack artist skill, you can actually buy these with faces already printed on the balloons here – Ghost Balloons & Jack-O-Lantern Balloons

This idea is clever too – add some bat wings to your balloons so they look like they are going to take flight at any moment!  Seems easy enough to make with some scissors and these – bat sticker decals

Or if you don’t have any balloons – these hanging paper lanterns would also work for adding bats!

You can also keep your balloons more basic and ready to inflate with helium with these fun polka dot balloons or clear confetti balloons with Halloween colors of confetti too.  Layering with banners and tissue tassels are an easy way to also create a larger party table backdrop.
