Here's the post I did for Kelli at Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM..
in case you missed it.
I don't know about you but I LOVE Halloween. Having 2 little ones really pushed me into "Halloween crazy town". This year, my son began preschool (& loves it) so he wanted to invite his entire class to our Halloween party. I decided that this year's theme would be 'Halloween Carnival' complete with games (sack races, eyeball toss, pumpkin bowling etc) and lots of treats (candy, candy and candy).
I wanted something a little extra but I didn't want to spend too much extra moola.
Candy skewers are what I really wanted for the carnival..and even though they are SO cute, it doesn't really fit in my budget when I need 25+.
So I made my own! And here's how you can too.
So easy (and so versatile).
Start with your supplies. Candy (preferably gummy candy) & skewers
(I intended on using the 10" ones but went with the 6" skewers).
I wanted to do a 'creepy' candy skewer and a 'gross' one.
I bought gummy worms, bugs, spiders, body parts and sour gummy dots.
Then it's time to get to work. Slide your gummies onto the skewer.
*I will tell you that the gummy worms were the easiest to slide.*
Here's a shot of the 10" skewer...
I realized that a longer skewer meant MUCH more candy..
I switched to the shorter one...
Here are the shorter ones with eyes, a finger and worms
I am really happy with how they turned out.
If you were giving them as 'takeaways',
put them in a clear cello bag & tie with a cute ribbon.
If you want to display them..stick them in a floral foam brick covered with candy.
I tested these out on the kids...I passed with flying colors.
Looks like I'll be making more :)
Thank you for letting me share these creepy/gross little treats with all of you.
BIG Thanks to Kelli for trusting me with her SUPER blog!!
Your bouquet of eyeballs, spiders and worms is on the way :)
