I took the pizza tray and flipped it upside down. I cut the scrapbook paper in a circle to fit perfectly. I glued with mod podge. Do not use the hot glue for this because it will bubble really bad. I added the orange lace with the glue gun. Cut another piece of scrapbook paper and wrap around the can of soup. I did use the glue gun for this one, but just a little bit. Last step, use the glue gun to add the can to the bottom of the tray. I will look like this when you are done!
I can’t even believe is almost the end of October!! yikes! Sorry there’s no giveaway this week. I will be posting all Halloween parties and ideas this week. The next party package giveaway will be posted next Monday, 10/24.I am excited to share this post I wrote for a fantastic website called, 5minutesformom.com Have you seen it? It’s wonderful!
I am a super busy mom. I am sure you all know the craziness of school, homework, grocery shopping, cooking, play-dates, etc….etc. We moms/women love being crafty and want to do it all, don’t we? I know I do, but usually have little time to do so.
I wanted to share a few 5-minutes Halloween crafty ideas with you. They are cute and inexpensive, just under $5!!
Halloween cupcake stand
Pizza tray from Walmart $.97 cents (you can use a cardboard cake circle as well)
Scrapbook paper $.25 cents
Mod podge $1.49 (with 40% off coupon from Michaels)
Lace or sequins by the yard $1.00 (1 yard will be plenty)
An unopened can of soup, corn or whatever you have in your pantry $.49 cents (you need it heavy so it can stand the weight of your cupcakes.
I had some cute plastic spider webs that I added around the stand too!
Halloween picture frame
A plain photo frame from Michaels with 40% off coupon for $1.20
Halloween ribbon about 1/2yd $.75 cents
A plastic spider $1 (pack of 12)
Glitter spray paint (I purchased on clearance for $1
This craft is totally less than 5 minutes. You will spray paint your frame on both sides. Add your Halloween ribbon with the glue gun and add a spider or two. You are done! I used mine to frame an invite for a recent Halloween photo shoot. This is what it looked like:
This is a fun craft to make with your kids!
A black pom pom $1.00 from the Dollar Tree
Goggly eyes $1.00 from the Dollar Tree (50 in a pack)
2 pipe cleaners or fuzzy sticks $.77 cents from Walmart (pack of 25)
You will cut the pipe cleaners in half. I folded mine to look like an “L” and hot glue to the pom pom. I glued the eyes on the pom pom as well and that’s it!
I added the spider on the middle of the cupcake stand and it added a little fun centerpiece. You could add your cupcakes around the spider….super cute!
Halloween pillar stand
1 sheet of 12X12 scrapbook paper
Halloween ribbon (1 yd is enough)
A recycled oatmeal container
First, you will wrap and glue scrapbook paper around the container. You will cut around after it has been glued. Cut a circle to cover the top. Glue the ribbon around the top or you can add to the middle or bottom. I used this to set some skeletons for the recent Halloween photo shoot as well. They are cute to set some pumpkins or any cute Halloween decoration. **Note** Do not use to set candles on.
