Halloween Crafts

Halloween has become one of my favorite holidays. Not only do I love to dress up my kids (as well as my husband and I, if possible), I love to make crafts for both my kids' schools and our friends. Here is a collection of the things I made this Halloween.

Witch's Broom:
Paper bag filled with a mix of haystacks topped off with a chocolate covered pretzel stick. Tag created with a Inkadinkado stamp, wording done on the computer.

Soccer is S'more Fun:
Clear bag filled with Peeps Halloween marshmallows, chocolate soccer balls and graham crackers. Header card created on the computer but also stamped with both CTMH (soccer ball and tiger) and Inkadinkado stamps.

Trick or Treat Card:
Stamps from Inkadinkado, felt pumpkin ribbon from Queen & Co. Both flocking and a glitter pen were used to highlight the images on the card.

I also included some pictures of "fall/Thanksgiving" themed chocolate covered pretzels that I made for my son's Holiday Craft Fair/Bake sale. Both the haystacks and chocolate covered pretzels are sooooo easy to make and sooooo yummy. If you need the recipe or directions, send me an e-mail.
