Are you throwing a Halloween party this year ? Or are you going to a party and need to bring a snack? I’m sharing how to make a festive Halloween Cake Plate Pennant which is the perfect way to display your holiday treats.
I received all these goodies from Plaid
- 3 sheets of glittered card stock
- 1 roll of coordinating ribbon
- Hot glue gun
- Mod Melt Sticks- glitter version
- Mod Melt Alphabet Mold
- Take your ribbon and measure around the edge of your cake plate and add a couple inches and cut.
- Cut 2- 1 1/2 ” strips of glittered card stock in each color.
- Cut a pennant shape. You will need enough to go the length of your ribbon.
- Make a small bead of hot glue to the top or the card stock and put the ribbon on top of the card stock. Do this until you have gone the length or the ribbon alternating colors.
- Take your hot glue gun and add a mod melt stick and squeeze it into the ABC molds spelling the words of your choice. I chose Happy Halloween for one side and Trick or treat for the other.
- Space out your letter so that they fit on your pennants. Hot glue them to the card stock.
Here are a couple close ups of the letters. Aren’t they cute??
Then for another quick and easy project I created these treat bags. Nice and simple. We don’t get Trick or Treaters at our home so I like to put together some treat bags to hand out to my grand kids and my boys friends.
- small bags. I purchased mine from Michael s.
- Left over Glitter card stock that you cut in 3/4″ strips.
- Mod Podge & paint brush
- 2 1/2 ” circle punch.
- Take your Mod Podge and brush it on the back of the glitter strip. Place the strip onto the bag.
- Punch out one of these fun cupcake toppers below with a 2 1/2 ” punch.
- Use the Mod Podge and brush the punched piece on the back and place on top of the glittered paper.
- Then brush across the front of the glitter and punched circle.
- Let them dry
- Fill with treats.
You can download these cupcake toppers here.
Here is a picture of the treat bags finished.
