Halloween is a wonderful time of the year! Especially when I look through photos of some of the fun things I have made over the years. I found these two photos as I was going through my old photos. Over the years, I have fallen in love with Halloween for so many reasons. Below is a centerpiece I made when I was showcasing many different centerpiece ideas for Halloween on Great Day St. Louis, a local TV show. This was one of them. The goal was to create something that was SUPER easy and that the kids could help you put together. I had my kids draw on small pumpkins… polka dots, stripes, dots, etc. and arranged them on a dessert tray. I topped the arrangement off with a black feather boa and done!!
Another fun thing I created last year was this candy corn wreath. It was super easy! I wrapped a foam wreath in black duct tape and hot glued the candy corn to the wreath. I need to dry the candy for one week to get all the moisture out, which was the hardest part of the project since I wanted to snack on them every time I walked by them. But I resisted and had all the necessary candy to get the wreath finished. However, I have a WARNING for you! If you are planning to show off your candy corn wreath outside, make sure it’s a cool and dry day. I stored my wreath for the entire year and when I took it out of storage, it looked great! However, we had a humid and hot day (the 70’s) and I forgot to take down the wreath. Guess what happened? The candy melted and dripped all over my door. So my best advice is to enjoy this wreath indoors!
