DIY Crafty Halloween Treats

For years I’ve been making fun crafts for Halloween (I am a mom after all). Whether it’s for a “spooky” party at my kids’ school or entertaining guests at home, I make Halloween crafts for decorations and nifty treats: simple, fun and practical. Here are just a few of my DIY Halloween crafts and treats that you and your family will enjoy both making and eating.

Sucker Pumpkin

To make your very own Sucker Pumpkin, all you need is a craft pumpkin (you can find at craft stores like Michael’s) and lollipops. You can also use cake pops in lieu of suckers. Drill holes in the pumpkin about two inches apart using a drill bit the size of a sucker stick (approximately 11/64 of an inch).

Witches’ Hands

I use food handler gloves (non latex) found anywhere food service supplies are sold (I found mine at Smart & Final). Fill gloves with candy corn for the fingernails, popcorn for the hand itself and then tie off with black string. I use a spider ring to decorate the ring finger.
