Mummy Halloween Treats

I love a fast and fun holiday treat for class parties or to hand out to friends. These Mummy Halloween Treats will put a smile on the recipients face and yours too as they are so easy to put together.

Mummy Halloween Treats

I love how the eyeballs looks like they  just woke up in a daze. All you need for these cute little mummies are three ingredients…

INGREDIENTS: (affiliate links below)

Ding Dong Mummy Ingredients

Just melt the candy wafers according to package directions and use a spoon to drizzle side to side over the Ding Dongs. Add two eyes while the white candy is still wet and then let dry.

They’re cute to pop in a bag to hand out to family, friend or classmates.

Or add a stick if that suits your fancy. I just covered a popsicle stick with washi tape slid it in the side and added a bow.

Either way, this spooky treat is all set to spread some Halloween cheer!

Halloween Gift Idea: Spider Web Nails

I love a good pedicure, but there’s not always time (especially since I just had my third boy a few weeks ago). I thought it would be fun to put together a simple gift for those who could use a little pampering (teachers, friends, daughters), but may not have the time to head to the spa. This way their toes will be spookified for Halloween and they don’t even have to leave their house! How about some spider web nails for a haunting Halloween gift?

Halloween Nail Gift IdeaAll you need to put this gift together is …

  • Black Nail Polish
  • White Vinyl
  • Cutting Machine
  • Free Smell My Feet Printable
  • Spider Ring
  • Treat Bag
  • Candy Corn
  • Ribbon

I used my Cricut Explore to cut my vinyl because it can rock tiny designs. I measured the size of my big toenail (which was about 0.75 x 0.5). Then, found a spider web image I liked and sized it to fit. You can use my cut design here to make things simple if you like. Then, just weed out the unneeded vinyl  pieces from the web so it looks like two stickers on a sheet. You can use transfer tape to place the design, but I just peeled them off like decals and placed them where I liked on my nail. Cover with a clear coat or two to waterproof. I did not include clear nail polish in the gift because I figured everyone has that.

I made a fun Halloween printable tag to put on the gift and continue with the theme. It is sized to fit two on a 4×6 photo card.         Trick or Treat Smell My Feet Printable

Now to finish off the gift, put the spider ring on the nail polish bottle, place them in the bag with two spider web vinyl decals and some candy corns and tie the tag on with some ribbon. It’s as easy as that!

Scrap Wood Pumpkins with The Contractor Chronicles

Hello Little Tipsy Readers!! It is good to be here again sharing a fun little project while Michelle is out with her sweet new baby! I know Michelle in real life so I am so excited for her and cannot wait to hold her little one! For those that don’t know me, I am Amanda and I blog alongside my husband over at The Contractor Chronicles. We love to share our knowledge of tools, our fun projects and our house remodels with our readers! Since we are going into cooler fall weather, I wanted to share a fun and simple Fall project that anyone can make with wood from your scrap pile, scrap wood pumpkins!

All you need for this project is a couple pieces of 2×4 wood and 2×6 wood! I found both in my scrap pile – but feel free to swing by Home Depot and grab a one of each a make a few of these for your home! Cut your pieces down – I cut two 2×4’s at 6 inches and two 2×6’s at 7.5 inches. I just did what I thought looked best – but make some bigger and smaller if you want too!

I used Rustoleum Cinnamon and sprayed the wood down.

When they were dry, I used my cornercat and sanded the edges a bit.

Lastly – and the thing that makes the pumpkin – I tied the whole thing up with green ric rac! I love it! It makes it look wavy – sort of like a real pumpkin!

I tied the top in a bow to look like “leaves.”

Halloween Silhouettes with Organize and Decorate Everything

Halloween Silhouettes

Hi Everyone! It’s Leanne at Organize and Decorate Everything. I’m so happy to be here while Michelle takes time to enjoy her cute little man and the rest of the men in her family. I love decorating for the holidays and Halloween happens to be one of my favorite. While I love traditional colors I also like to break away from them from time to time. I love how these silhouettes represent Halloween but don’t scream Halloween in your face.

The best part is that you don’t need a cutting machine or anything fancy to make them, just a computer and a printer. I’ve heard from my readers so many times that things were cute but they weren’t able to duplicate them because they didn’t have a machine. Well, I’ve got you covered with this project. Just google different silhouette images, size them, and print them out. Use your imagination to come up with your favorite group of images.

Halloween Silhouettes 3

I chose scrapbook paper in different colors but the same pattern as the background for the silhouettes. Then I went through my frame stash and chose the frames I wanted to use. Yard sale frames are a good choice for Halloween decor. They don’t even have to be the same color.

Halloween Silhouettes 5

Cut out the silhouettes. I found ones with not much detail (except for the tree the owl’s perched on) to make it easier.

Halloween Silhouettes 6

Cut the scrapbook paper to fit the frame then glue the silhouette on the paper. I used a regular glue stick. As you might notice I trimmed the tree a bit to fit perfectly on the paper.

Halloween Silhouettes 2

That’s it! Now you have 4 framed pieces for Halloween for very little cost. Thank you for letting me share a Halloween craft with you. I know it’s only August but I like to plan ahead and have all my projects finished. Here are a few more projects you might like.
