13 Days Before Halloween


I like to give our kids and g-kids a fun thing to do for a countdown for Halloween - this is what we did this year. I made these toppers on our print artist program, colored and glittered the pumpkin, and then hot glued them to a 6 foot strip of saran wrap. I added a hanging ribbon before I glued them, This is how long the saran wrap was - it went the full length of our table.

I added a sucker stick to the inside fold of the paper to give it some stabliity because the candy is heavy and pulled down the header when it was hung up.



This is how it looks when it is done - they turned out really cute! When I added candy, I added one piece at a time, tied it off with a ribbon then added another candy, etc until I got 13 pieces. These are for our grandchildren.



I didn't want their parents to feel left out so I put 13 pieces of candy in a sandwich zippie and hot glued the topper to the bag.



I put each families in a cellophane bag - added some purple, lime and orange ribbon and they are ready to be delivered!




Thanks for stopping by!
