I will be formally declaring this week as the week of all things Halloween.
Well, I’ll be formally declaring that here on this blog because ya know, that’s all I really have control over, although technically I feel I deserve much more say-so in this world. 😉 Don’t you think so too?
With the exception of Tuesday (which is when I’m planning to share the farmhouse’s bathroom remodel!), I’ll have a new, easy and cheap Halloween craft and/or printable for ya here on the blog each day!
So, happy all things Halloween week minus one day!
As I said last week, in the post about my DIY creepy skull candleholder, I have finally regained my creative surge for fall – it just doesn’t include orange pumpkins and leaves.
It includes skulls, ghosts, witches and other wonderful things of that nature.
Like these skull drink stirrers…
I love these little guys! They are freaky and spooky and creepy and that just makes my Halloween heart happy!
It literally took about five minutes to make these little gems for Halloween.
- Mini Skull Heads – I used these.
- Straws in Colors of Your Choice – In keeping with the Halloween spirit, I went with black and orange ones.
- X-Acto Knife
- Hot Glue Gun (optional)
Insert a straw into each of the holes you made with the X-Acto knife.
Your skull heads should fit on the straws pretty snug as long as you didn’t make your holes too big. If you did make some too big, then put a bead of hot glue around where the skull and straw meet.
Next year, you can either make them all over again, or ask people who use the stirrers to simply pop the skull head off before tossing the stirrer, then you can wash them and use them to make more stirrers next year.
Cheers to Halloween!
