Did you ever make cute little tissue ghosts as a kid? While I loved making them as a kid, these cupcake liner Candy Ghosts as a little easier, and a whole lot cuter. The cupcake liner adds a cute little frilly ghost skirt, and is the perfect size for Dum Dum pops.


These little ghosts make a great treat for a school or church carnival, or also as a fun way to dress up trick or treat candy! Let your kids in on the fun by letting them add cute or spooky faces to the candy ghosts.


To make a Candy Ghost you will need:
White cupcake liners
Dum Dum pops
Clear small hair elastics
Permanent fine point marker

Directions: First, place a cupcake liner over your Dum Dum pop. Next, place a second layer over the pop. Doing the cupcake liners one at a time helps the ghost skirt poof a little more. Take a hair elastic and double it over the head of the candy ghost. Use a marker to draw a face on your ghost.



A Halloween cakewalk always needs some good cupcakes! While we would all love to have all the time to bake fresh homemade cupcakes, we know that it doesn’t usually happen. This year go buy those easy store bought cupcakes, and with a few good tricks, dress them up to be the hit of the cakewalk!


To make these Spider Web Cupcakes you will need:
White chocolate
Spider web free printable template
Parchment paper
Disposable pastry bag
Spider rings
Black and white chevron cupcake liners


Directions: First, print out the spider web template. Tape some parchment paper over the top of the template. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave by heating it in 30 second intervals. Place the melted white chocolate in a pastry bag. Snip off the end of the pastry bag. Try to make a very small hole. Use the template as a loose guide for your spider webs. Loosely drizzle the white chocolate in the spider web shape. Don’t try to make it perfect, it needs to be a loose flowing web.

Let the white chocolate set up by placing it in the fridge for a few minutes. Once your chocolate has set up, gently pick one up off of the parchment paper and place into your cupcake. Place a spider in front of the white chocolate web. Place the cupcake inside a black and white chevron cupcake liner.





I absolutely love candy capsules! If there is ever a reason to use them, I do. So, for Halloween, it was only natural to make a candy capsule pumpkin.


While these are really easy to make, the results are adorable and will leave everyone excited to break open their pumpkin.

To make a Pumpkin Capsule you will need:
Orange capsules
Green pipe cleaner
Glue gun
Autumn colored candy – I used Reese’s Pieces


Directions: First, take approximately a 1 inch piece of green pipe cleaner. Fold the pipe cleaner in half and twist it together. Next, use the glue gun and glue the twisted pipe cleaner to the top of the capsule. Be sure to glue the ends of the pipe cleaner down, leaving the folded end sticking up. Once the glue is dry, fill the capsule with the Autumn colored candy and close the capsule.



To finish this Little Pumpkin Party, it is only natural to give away little pumpkins as party favors. While you could just give away real pumpkins, I thought it would be fun to create a cute little party favor bag that mimics a pumpkin instead!


Play-Doh is a great alternative to candy at a party, so it was a great choice to stuff these pumpkins with. I like how the Play-Doh helps the pumpkin keep a round shape, but you could easily stuff the bags with a variety of different items.

You Will Need:
Orange polka dot bags
Green pipe cleaners
Party favor, such as Play-Doh

Directions: First, stuff an orange polka dot bag with the Play-Doh or party favors. Twist the top of the bag closed. Take a green pipe cleaner and wrap it around the twisted part of the bag to create a pumpkin stem.




While I call these pumpkin cupcakes, it’s all in the decorations. Make these cute cupcakes using your favorite store bought chocolate cupcakes. I used these adorable cupcakes for our Little Pumpkin Birthday Party, but they would also work perfectly for a Halloween cake walk.


You Will Need:
Orange sanding sugar
Orange cupcake liners
Green Sour Punch straws


First, use the knife to smooth the frosting on your cupcake. It doesn’t need to be super smooth, just try to make the best dome shape possible. Next, place the orange sanding sugar in a small bowl. Dip the cupcake in the sanding sugar, getting sugar all the way around the frosting. Cut a 1-1/2 inch piece of a green Sour Punch straw. Place the Sour Punch straw piece in the top of your cupcake. Place the cupcake in an orange cupcake liner.
