Fall 3 light up their display for food ect... diy under 10 dollars

Ok so are you hosting thanksgiving this year and want and unique way to display food and no save on counter space too? 
Ok then we are thinking a like ... this is what I came up with! 

It's under a 10 dollar diy and everything came from dollar tree!! 

What I used 

2 packs of leaves 
2 boxes of battery power lights ( located by flowers ) 
2 plates ( color of your choice )
2 vases 
and a bowl or another plater up to you! 

Hot glue gun 

that's it! Are you ready?? 

If you want to see my next diy make sure you follow me on Instagram 
ok ok let's get started ! 

Here is the video 

My final project looks like this... pretty happy for how it came out concerning I didn't really have a plan of what I was going for when I started ! 

I think the lights worked out perfect!  Led lights are super bright lol and I hide the battery packs under and covered with leaves
but still able to turn on and off and change battery pack! 

The lights I used but I took off all the dragon Flys 

Fill your vape with whatever be creative!  This would be cute with pine cones or acorns or just gems like my last one I did ! 

I used a bowl for on top 
you could go for a salad plate or whatever really! 

I used 2 plates 

Leave garland

Halloween mummy hand wreath diy under 4 dollars!

Ok so today I made this wreath for on my door.... I took pictures as I went ... but where did they go? Or did I??? I can't find all  the pictures :( however I did record it! So please check my youtube video on how I did this!! So easy ..
Here is what you will need
I used a rubber glove
Stuffing for inside glove ( whatever you have)
Wreath I painted mine gray
Spiders and skeleton ( craft store )
And old trust worthy glue gun ....
I filled my rubber glove with old stuffing out of a pillow I was no longer using, then I wrapped in gauze ( I used 2 rolls )
I took mt husband's old t shirt and cut into strips and wrapped over the gauze, then hot glued some spiders
Glue the hand onto the wreath and add some spiders and a skeleton .... done !

I have less than 4 dollars into this craft...

Diy chocolate halloween candy bowls

Ok so I might not be the best at chocolate melted candy... I'm not patient enough. .. I could have done better ... but o well it taste the same anyway right ?
I did these late last night ... and by late I mean early... it was 3am before I got done... and I could have a fail video just on the bloopers ;) but either way these are a cute idea right !?
I ran out of  chocolate ( I used one bag for everything you see here and I should have had 2 ! ) i did start out with 2 bags .....the one bag of chocolate I left in microwave too long and it burnt :(  to see that make sure to go to bottom of this post and watch my youtube video haha
Ok ok end of me blabbing  you want to know how to do these right !??
Here we go.....

I also chocolate coated some strawberries ( my hubby's favorite ) twinkies and then I made the bowls 

List of items you will need.....

wax paper ( or plate sprayed with pam)

chocolate melts ... I would buy already colored ! This brand was tricky to food color kept getting hard !? Might just be this brand 

icing to make face or chocolate chips or dark chocolate for face 

balloons ( water balloons are right size!) 

And patience. ... ( hardest to find ) 

Melt chocolate 30 seconds at a time !! ( this is important) 
chocolate burns fast and doesn't seem like it until it's too late 

Rinse balloons!  Then blow up small 

dip and roll in melted chocolate.  

You can dip pretty much anything in chocolate and make it able to be ate ;) here I used strawberries 

Here are all my balloons dipped 
I put them in fridge and let set up for ate bout a hour before popping balloons and peeling out 

After a hour pop balloons and peal out be careful and take time you can trim edges and make even or leave messy for more spooky/ lazy affect ;) 

I didn't have much candy in the house so just filled mine with m&ms these could be fixed up really cute ! Candy Corn ... or you could chocolate dip some sugar cones and no make a witch one ... soooo many possibilities!  Stay creative


Have fun ! Kids love doing this! 
Great for parties or October birthdays!

Easy diy Bloody candle

Ok so sometimes it's the simple things you overlook...

I do love halloween,  but I do not love scary stuff or I will not watch scary movies.. is that weird. ? Haha

I thought of this for a decoration, I will not be using it in my house but simple and easy for a added spook to your halloween decor :) 

This is going to be easy you ready? 

Grab a white candle 
and some melted red wax ( or another candle in red) 

melt the wax ...... then .... 

Pour. .. be careful it is hot. 

But makes it look scary right ? Great addition to your table or porch for trick or treat lighting 

happy haunting !
