Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year, I love to decorate the house and make “spooky” food to eat on the night. We don’t go trick or treating and we never get people knocking on our door which is one of the benefits of living in an apartment. My children like to get treats for Halloween and one of my favourite things to do is hide the treats around the house for them to find. This year I will be hiding a variety of Halloween treats around the house including these rather cute trick or treat lollypop Ghosts.
The Lollypop ghosts are such a simple Halloween treat to make and you can pop them in a bowl to hand out to any trick or treaters who come to your door. To make the ghosts you will need:
Tissue / Toilet Paper
Black felt tipped pen
It couldn’t be more simple to put these together, me and my 3 year old had great fun although I did have to stop him trying to eat every one of the lollypops!
The first step is to cut a sheet of tissue into 4 pieces, this gives you a small square which you will place your lolly on and it forms the head section. Lay your tissue down on a flat surface, depending on the size of the lollypop you may need two sheets, place a small square in the centre.
Place your lollypop on the small square as shown above. You are then going to fold the top down over the lolly.
Secure the tissue around the head of the lollypop with an elastic band. Don’t worry about the aesthetics at this point as we will be adding ribbon and separating the tissue to form the ghost later.
Tie some spooky ribbon around the elastic band to form a scarf.
Draw on some eyes and pull out your tissue to make it look like a floating ghost.
These ghosts are great to hand out to children who come to the door trick or treating.
Pin this for later.
