My friends at Skype asked me to share some amazing Halloween Party DIY Ideas! I have a few amazing ideas for a party that would appeal to kids and adults! Below you will find Chic and Cute Halloween Decor, Ping Ping Ghost Lights, and also a Tasty Candy Halloween Centerpiece.
GHOST LIGHTS - I absolutely love these cute little ghosts! I created them with a few simple materials. The other fun part of this project, was that I was able to use Skype to help share this project with my friend, who absolutely LOVED them :) It's great being able to connect with people who live far away, and Skype made it easy.
- 1 Strand of white lights (with white wires). I used a strand of 50, but 25 would be great also.
- 10 Ping Ping Balls
- Modge Podge (any type will do)
- Foam Brush for Modge Podge
- Cheesecloth (found in the fabric/notions section at Hobby Lobby)
- Permanent Marker
- Egg Cartons and Painters Tape
- Drill and Drill Bit - 5/16" - Or a large nail will be good - to poke holes in ping pong balls
- 4" x 4" squares of cheesecloth (x10)
1.) Drill holes in all ping ping balls. You can also use a large nail to poke the holes in them. Make sure you poke the hole where the logo is.
2.) Draw spooky ghost faces on all ping pong balls. I searched for "Ghost Faces" online, and all sorts of ideas came up.
3.) Grab your egg cartons and use the painters tape to create little cones, so your ping pong balls can sit up in the egg cartons. Use the sticky side of the tape on the outside.
4.) Drape the cheesecloth squares over the ping pong balls, and use your foam brush to paint the Modge Podge over the cloth, to adhere to the ping pong balls. They will definitely begin to look like ghosts now!
5.) Let them dry for 4-5 hours, and place a ping pong ball ghost to every third or fourth Christmas light! That's it! Please comment below if you make these!
I used a big assortment of Halloween candy for this one! It turned out SO cute and I think kids would just love it. This would make the ultimate conversation piece at a Halloween party, too!
- Large Glass Vase with straight sides
- 1 large bag of mini marshmallows and 3-4 other types of Halloween candy and Halloween Peeps
1.) Pour 2 inches of marshmallows into vase
2.) Layer Halloween Peeps around edge of vase, and fill center with more marshmallows
3.) Layer alternating colored candies all the way up, and top off with more marshmallows and Halloween suckers of your choice!
THE ULTIMATE CHIC HALLOWEEN PARTY DECOR
I am in love with the look of a Monochromatic Halloween Party! Here, I used mostly black dishes, tablecloth, and Creepy Cloth to drape over the setting to really add a spooky element. Just let your food add some pops of color, and your guests will be so happy they came to party!
I was able to use Skype to let my friend know the party was all set up and ready!
Happy Halloween! And a special spooky thanks to Skype for hosting the best Halloween party ever in NEW YORK CITY! I will blog about that soon!!!
