To make these you will need:

“String Cheese” Mozzarella cheese sticks

Ribbon

FREE printable  Hats or make your own with black paper.

Double-sided tape

Sharpies – Black and Orange

Scissors

First cut out the hats, turn them over and put some double sided tape on them. Place the hat on the top of the cheese stick (on the side that does NOT have logos or writing).

Use the sharpie markers to draw a face on your snowman. Two medium sized black dots for eyes, a orange line for a nose and  five small black dots for a mouth.

Next tie a piece of  ribbon around the cheese to make it look like a scarf, tie a double knot so it stays in place. Trim to appropriate length.

Just below the scarf,  draw 3 medium sized black dots to look like buttons.

Free Fall printables

Free Fall printables

Two styles of Free Fall printables for you to print out and celebrate the season.

Free Fall printables Free Fall printablesgive thanks

happy fall

I love a good, free printable. They are an inexpensive way to decorate and celebrate different seasons and holidays. Fall is my favorite season and when I found these gorgeous floral freebies over at Free Pretty Things For You, I knew I had to use them for something. She has so many freebies, clip arts, fonts, all the things you could want for creating beautiful printables, digital scrapbooking, you name it. You really should go take a look and show her some love!

I created the PDF in my Silhouette America software and just used a free program to save it as a PDF. It was so simple. If you want to print these off, that is simple too. Just click on the hyperlinked text of the one you want right above this paragraph (that is the text in blue right above here). That will save it to your computer and you can either print it at home or send it to your favorite printer. These are 8×10 size, but you can just print them on a regular sheet of paper and trim it.

Mummy in a can Gift & Caramel Popcorn Recipe ~ Quick and easy Halloween treat idea

A Boo – Lishes Carmel Corn

Quick and easy Halloween treat idea

Thanks to Marcee for passing along this Super Thrifty gift Idea.

Supplies:

*Metal Cans
*Pliers
*Glue gun
*Toilet Paper
*White Paper
*Black Marker
*Plastic Bread bags
*Carmel Popcorn (Recipe below)
Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 1

Caramel Popcorn Recipe

5 quarts (or 3 times with the air popper)
1 cup of butter
2 cups of brown sugar
½ cup of Karo Syrup
½ tsp. of Salt
1 tsp. of vanilla
½ tsp. of baking soda

Directions

I make the popcorn in an air popper. I use two bowls. The first bowl is used for catching the popcorn; once the popcorn is finished popping the first time. I stop the machine. I shake the bowl so all the unpopped seeds fall to the bottom. I than scope up the popcorn from the 1st smaller bowl in to the 2nd larger bowl. I do this 2 more times with the air popper.

Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 2

I than melt the butter in a large pan on the stove top; once butter is almost melted; I add the brown sugar, karo syrup, and the salt; stir and turn the heat up so that the mixture boils. Once the mixture begins to boil, do not stir for 4 minutes. Once the mixture has boiled for 4 minutes remove from heat and add the soda and vanilla. Stir again. The soda will make the mixture bubble and turn a yummy golden color. Pour the mixture over the bowl of popcorn. Stir the mixture and the popcorn together. A REALLY large bowl helps. Stir until the mixture is attached to the popcorn. My kids like to eat it now, yet it will not stay for a long time unless the popcorn is baked. If you plan to store the popcorn, than you need to bake the popcorn.

 

Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 3

You will need two large cookie sheets with sides on them. Put ½ of the mixture on each pan. Bake for an hour on 400 degrees. Stirring every 15 minutes, take out of the oven and let the popcorn cool.

How to make the can mummies

Start with a used metal can from soup, beans, or anything. Make sure the inside of the can is not sharp. (If it is, please smooth it out with a pair of pliers.)

Warm up the glue gun. Next tear off an arm’s length of toilet paper. When the glue is ready, apply a nickel size amount of glue to the back side of the can. (The back is the side where the manufacturers attached their labels) Carefully attach the beginning of the toilet paper to the top of the can. Then wrap the toilet paper around the can until it is at the end. Glue the end of the toilet paper to the can. Spread the toilet paper out so the metal is showing. On some cans I added more glue to keep the toilet paper from slipping.

Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 4

I than drew two eyes and colored the iris in with black. I drew the eyes looking in different directions for fun. I cut the eyes out and attached them to the can with the hot glue.

 Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 5

Decorate them

I insert a bread bag (found at Wal-Mart) in the can. I than put the popcorn in the bag while the bag is in the can, I fill until the popcorn is over flowing and I tie the bag shut with a knot. It makes the mummies look at if they have a hat on.

My family selects another family to drop these gifts off too. I park the car down the block; one child rings the doorbell and runs. The kids like to hide outside the house to see the reaction to the recipients faces. We then run back to our car and laugh at how much fun it was. We always leave a note, so they know it is from someone they know.

My daughter wrote the note this year: “You’ve Been Boo’ed”

It is a fun family tradition!
