Halloween Crafts with Viking Direct

About a month ago now, I was emailed to ask if I would like to take part in a Halloween Craft Project with Viking Direct* and create some #spooktacularcrafts.

Naturally, I took to Pinterest, created a Halloween board and filled it with potential ideas of what I could create, of course all dependent on the box of craft materials Viking Direct supplied.

Today I want to share with you two crafts that I made inspired by Pinterest.

The first I knew I had to try, Lollipop Ghosts! I headed out to grab a bag of lollies as these were quite important! Because, hey, what is Halloween without sweets? Out of my box of goodies I grabbed the white tissue paper, the black marker and some of the fun scissors. I also had some twine I used to create a more rustic feel to the ghosts, can that be a thing?

I took a squee of white tissue paper and used the scissors to create a fun edge to it! I cut off a short piece of twine to tie the tissue paper around the lollipop. Next, wrap the tissue paper over the lolly, putting it directly in the middle of the tissue paper. Wrap the twine around the stick and tie a knot. Take your marker and draw on two eyes...ta-dah! A lollipop ghost! Repeat as many times as you want, depending on how many little ghosts you want to make.

My second craft for today is little pumpkin treat bags. This one is very simple.
  • Cut out orange circles of tissue paper, as small or as big as you want. Note: if you cut small ones you won't fit much in, if you cut big ones, be cautious of the weight of sweets.
  • Wrap the tissue paper around the sweets. Keeping it circular and pumpkin-like - technical terms right there!
  • Leave enough around the edges to twist at the top.
  • Grab some green or black tissue paper, you only need a small rectangle and twist this around the top of your orange twist. This forms the top of your pumpkin.
  • And there you have your pumpkin treat bags!

That is both of today's crafts! I have two more Halloween themed posts coming this week, so stay tuned!

What is your favourite Halloween activity to do?
