Halloween is Here! A Little Treat...

I found this idea on The Queen's Card Castle via Pinterest and just HAD to give it a try!  :)

There are a bunch of kids living in the RV Campground here and Trick or Treating is definitely on the calendar.  Yay!

The kids are allowed to Trick or Treat at campers that have the porch light lit.  Our porch light just blew out as well as the security lights so I spent a day changing the 3 bulbs--but that's another story.  ;)

The office says that there are about 25 kids in the park so I decided to give this a go and it turned out so cute!  

I started by getting a huge bag of smarties--those are the fingers--and a package of non powdered gloves from the pharmacy.  Grabbed some rolls of ribbon in Halloween type colors, some spider rings and a BUNCH of candy--the little mini stuff.  That works best when filling the palm of the glove.
Oh!  And check out these cool eyeball gum balls!  Are they too cute or WHAT???  I found those at Dollar General!

As I began to make them, I found that TWO smarties in the thumb looked more thumb like--don't you think?  See in this picture?  The one smartie in the thumb just seems a little thin.

Start with the smarties in the fingers, put a ring on it, stuff the palm with all of the mini candies and cute eyeball gum and tie it all up with a bow!  How fun is this????
Bring on the Trick or Treaters!

PS--Uh yeah, I'm dressing up again this year.  I just can't let a good fun opportunity go by!  :)


  1. I've seen the glove stuffed with popcorn - I like the idea of candy! We never had trick-or-treaters in a campground. Lucky you!

    1. I can't believe there are that many kids here! They are so quiet and well behaved! :)

  2. Those will be some LUCKY trick-or-treaters.

  3. I did that once with popcorn. Cute. And camping and treating - how fun!

    1. I think it will be! And it is nice and warm--t-shirt weather so we will actually get to see the costumes! :)
