Happy Halloween!

For Halloween we threw a party and gave out candy to the trick or treaters.

We set out treats and snacks.

We set up a fountain with our family’s traditional punch.

We also decorated using mason jars. We filled them with cotton balls, plastic spiders, and glow sticks.

We also saved cans up to this point and cleaned them out(make sure the edges aren’t sharp before using them!). Once done we wrapped them in gauze and added some eyes, and viola! We had mummified decorations that we filled with various tricks and treats.

We set up outside on our decorated front porch with our small fire pit lit waiting for the trick or treaters.

For my pumpkin, I love Cinderella so I decided to decorate mine as Cinderella’s carriage. Hints the sky blue color.

We started out with spray paint. Then you can either let it sit and dry or you can do what we did and pull out the blow torch and carefully dry the paint(Don’t try this at home kids!)

After dried I decorated, I added some wheels and bling and viola! Cinderella’s carriage. pumpkin 3

Crayon Pumpkins

Last weekend for Halloween we started decorating pumpkins. With so many people in the house we ended up with so many different kinds of decorated pumpkins!

My youngest daughter decided she wanted to melt crayons on her pumpkin.

Watching the final product my youngest decided he wanted to do it as well.

By the end of the evening we ended up with three very colorfully decorated pumpkins.

Halloween Jello Shots

Keep in mind, these are for a work function so we didn’t add any alcohol to them. But aside from that, these are fun little treats to make whether for a social function or a kid’s party!

jello 4

To start out with, I had 3 containers of jello. Lime Green, Grape, and Orange. I bought some Halloween themed sprinkles at Walmart, a package of Dots, and used the serving proportion cups.

Next we just mixed the jello.

jello 2

Poured it into the serving cups with a scoop.

Meanwhile, my son-in-law and youngest son were making spider eye balls.

We cut off the top of the dots and stuck little spider sprinkles on top for the pupils.

(Sorry for the quality, little boy hands moving in and out of the picture can make it hard to get a clear one.)

Afterwards, you let them set in the fridge until they’re almost set (or if you’re impatient, you can do the speed set and place these in at about 20 minutes.

I decorated the tops with the eye balls and other sprinkles.

This was the ending result.
