23 Oct Surprise Balloon Pumpkins
This will definitely be the coolest way to hand out candy at Halloween. Don’t bother looking any further. The cauldron of candy is so last year. A punch bowl? Boring. And please don’t tell me you were actually considering simply grabbing a couple of pieces straight out of the bag and handing them to each trick-or-treater who knocks at your door! This is Halloween. Have some fun!
For this awesome grab bag you’ll need orange balloons, some candy, a black sharpie, and (if you’re feeling really festive) green party fringe and some glue. Take a few pieces of candy and stick them through the opening of the balloon, then blow it up like normal and tie it off. Already, you have an awesome candy-filled balloon. But don’t stop there!
Use your sharpie to draw spooky or ridiculous faces on the front of the balloon, just like a jack-o-lantern. If you’re feeling really festive, or you have a whole lot of time on your hands, glue the green party fringe around the balloon’s knot and it will look even more like a pumpkin.
Now you have some absolutely amazing, candy-filled balloon pumpkins to wow your guests. They’re also perfect for a kid’s party (or adults!) where you can lay out all the pumpkins in a “pumpkin patch” and let each child pick his or her favorite.
