I love quick and easy projects that use minimal materials, especially when it comes to the holidays. All those decorations can get pretty expensive, and they’re only temporary solutions anyway. So here’s a fun and simple way to dress up plain Halloween party favor bags at this year’s party. Oh, and one more thing, you can put the standard ghosts and goblins away because this budget-friendly option is anything but ordinary.

Supplies: Scotch® Color & Pattern Duct Tape, fringe scissors, regular scissors, small kraft bags (2.5 x 4 inches)

Directions: Cut two pieces of tape 2.5 inches long, the width of your favor bags. Set the first piece of tape aside and fold the other piece in half, longways. Then flip the second piece of tape over, so the sticky part is facing up. Attach the other piece of tape that was folded in half, leaving about 1/4 inch of space at the top. Fold the dangly part of the tape (at the bottom only) over the folded piece and press down. Now you have a small area at the top where the sticky part of the tape is still exposed. That is what you want. Next, using fringe scissors or regular scissors, begin cutting fringe pieces from the bottom up (do not cut the top area, where the sticky side of the tape is). Attach the first layer to your bag, starting at the bottom. Repeat until your entire bag is covered with fringe. Fill with candy and enjoy.

These cupcakes are a little on the gory side, but the cuteness of the tiny hatchets offset anything too scary about them. Any flavor cupcake or icing will work perfectly. We used chocolate, but red velvet with cream cheese icing would be delicious too. Presenting… So I Married an Ax Murderer cupcakes.

You will need: 1 batch of cupcakes, 1 batch of white frosting, Black Foil Cupcake Liners, Hatchet Toppers, baking tray lined with a slip-mat or parchment paper, 1 batch of Red Candy Coating

RED CANDY COATING RECIPE

1 Cup of Sugar
6 Tablespoons of water
¼ cup light corn syrup
½ teaspoon red food coloring

In a small saucepan bring the sugar, water and corn syrup to a boil. Add the food coloring and reduce to a simmer. Stir on and off for 20 minutes. To check if your candy is ready drop some of the liquid into room temp water, if it holds its shape you’re good to go.

DIRECTIONS:

1. Bake your cupcakes. While your cupcakes are cooling, prepare the candy coating.

2. When your candy is ready, use a spoon to drop tablespoon size splotches of candy on the parchment paper or slip-mat. Let the candy dribble and pool to the sides like blood at a crime scene.

3. Quickly dip each hatchet in a little bit of candy coating, and then nestle the hatchet in the center of a pool of candy. This will hold the hatchet upright.

4. Let the candy cool.

5. Once your cupcakes have cooled ice them with an offset spatula or butter knife.

6. Gently pick up a splotch of candy coating and press it into your frosted cupcake.

7. Use the extra drops of candy as little blood drops on your serving platter.

Looking for a dessert to double as décor at your Halloween bash? These ruby slipper cupcakes are the perfect treat. They’re surprisingly simple and you can use any chocolate cupcake recipe and whipped frosting you like—even if they’re not from scratch, your secret’s safe with the witch.

You will need: 1 batch of chocolate cupcakes, 1 batch of vanilla frosting, Black and Lime Green Polka Dot Cupcake Liners, Electric Green Food Coloring Gel,
Soft Green Sanding Sugar, Medium Petal Pastry Tip, Black and White Paper Straws, 1 sheet of Red Glitter Foam

1. While your cupcakes are baking, draw a pair of tiny shoes (about 1/2” tall) on the back of your glitter foam for each cupcake. Cut out the shoes.

2. Each paper straw will make two sets of legs. Cut each straw in four equal pieces, to make as many legs as you need. With a dab of hot glue secure each shoe to the front of each straw leg.

3. Prepare your icing by adding 4-5 drops of electric green food gel. Put your frosting in a pastry bag, or plastic bag, fitted with a petal tip.

4. With the thin side of the petal tip pointed toward the edge of the cupcake, make overlapping ruffles and fill the cupcake. Don’t worry about making them perfect! She’s a crashed witch.

5. Sprinkle the frosting with matching sanding sugar for your witch’s sparkly skirt.

6. Insert the straws about 1/2” apart.

7. Add a second liner around your cupcake to give the witch’s skirt a billowing effect.
