We’re not much for celebrating Halloween in our house. We no longer have small children and my husband and I never “Trick or Treated” as kids (him because he lived in the middle of nowhere and me because I lived in a big city where the process turned VERY nasty).
We now live in a medium /large village where “Trick or Treating” is done beautifully. Parents accompany their kids, it is about sweets and treat (not money) and they never call at a house unless you have a carved Pumpkin outside your front door. Because to this I wanted to get more in the spirit this year.
I saw a tutorial on “A Beautiful Mess” a couple of weeks ago for Lollipops made to look like ghosties that was really sweet (If you haven’t had a roam around “ABM” take a look, it is my all time favourite blog, completely inspiring and very beautiful!). These spooky sweeties for Halloween were an incredibly easy to make and the children will remember getting something so special.
I decided to tweak the idea a bit for some cute things to give to our little visitors on the 31st . Using fabric felt a bit wasteful as it would be discarded by the little cherubs in thirty seconds flat and little hands would struggle with undoing knots.
Underneath are lollipops. I used tissues, half a pipe cleaner wrapped around and bent into reaching “arms” and a felt tip pen for the faces.
Can’t wait for Halloween to give them out!
