What do you do when it’s a rainy Sunday and there are just a couple of weeks before Halloween? You hunker down and try a few Halloween crafts. It was actually really nice to spend some time with my youngest daughter crafting. We listened to some classical music and lost ourselves in the joy of creating.
We made three crafts from Pinterest. Our ghostly crafts were super easy and I think rather cute. Certainly fun to share with friends at Halloween. Miss C took some of the Ghost Pretzels to school today to share with a friend.
I made the Tootsie Pop Ghosts to share with my class as they are nut and gluten-free. I think they will love these cute little ghosts. They are so easy to make. I remember making something similar to this when I was a little girl. Instead of a tootsie pop, I rolled up another tissue and made the head. They were cute, but not quite as tasty.
We also tried a pumpkin craft, it’s still drying. It was actually fun to make, but the jury is still out on if we mastered this craft. I’m thinking it might be a Pinterest fail, but we will see once it dries.
Tootsie Pop Ghost
All you need:
tissues (I used two for each ghost)
sharpie or googly eyes
Pop the tootsie pop inside the tissues, tie a ribbon and add eyes with a sharpie or glue on googly eyes.

All you need:
White chocolate wafers
All you have to do is melt the wafers, dip the pretzels and add the googly eyes while the chocolate is still warm.

These ghostly crafts were so much fun and I love that they are easy. There are so many awesome projects on Pinterest. It is fun to take some time to give them a try. Thank you Dessert Now Dinner Later and One Little Project at a Time for your fun crafts.
