What a great idea to do a FREE decoration for Halloween. As a kid I always loved going to houses who decorated and gave me great memories when I was Trick-Or-Treating. Sometimes just the simple decorations were just as cool to me – although I absolutely loved the houses that gave me chills to walk up to.
For this decoration you just need toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls and glow sticks (get these at a dollar store where you can find a large package of bracelets, necklaces etc. for a dollar). Cut slits and ovals and anything else you can think of in these tubes. Don’t worry about the exterior of the tubes as it will be dark and no one will see anything except the glowing eyeballs.
Hang them from fishing line, stick them in bushes, or stick or hang them in trees. Think of all the nooks and crannies that these can go into. When that special night starts to happen snap your glow sticks to turn them on and stick them inside the tubes.
PS: This time of year they also have those look alike candles that are small that are actually a light bulb which you could use.
Dip Nutter Butters into melted chocolate or chill Nutter Butters and dip into candy shell (the stuff you buy for ice cream that goes on as a liquid but hardens as a candy shell. Drag with a toothpick little ridges at the base of the wings. Place a dot of melted chocolate at the top and stick a brown M&M onto it. Place two dots of melted chocolate at the top of the M&M and drag (with a toothpick) up to create two ears. Pipe two dots of colored icing (powdered sugar with a few drops of food coloring just to make it almost runny). Put two drops of melted chocolate for the center of eyes.
Delicious treat for a Halloween party or for an added bonus to a treat bag. If you love Nutter Butters like i do this will surely be a scary little treat you will want to make.
