Skeleton Face Candy Packaging

See how we created the "blood" on the utensils? We also added these adorable skull face candy holders to eat place settings for an added treat.

To make them, spray paint all of the egg boxes white inside and out and let dry completely. Cut out the skeleton face templates out of black craft paper with scissors or a craft knife or make your own! Glue on the paper face pieces using a light layer of tacky glue and make sure you securely press down the pieces since the egg is round.

Crescent Flower Wreath

Add those little bats all over your table, or to this DIY wreath that has all of the colors of fall. To create the wreath, start with long skinny grass on the two ends of the crescent shape you are forming to mark the end. Hot glue them into place. Fill in the middle with a mix of all the dried flowers you have collected making sure to mix in more grass and long skinny shapes between the flowers to keep it balanced. Hot glue each thing you add to ensure it is secure. Finish the wreath off by attaching a ribbon around the top or just hang it on a hook on your door or wall.
