Get into the Halloween spirit with these fun, easy DIY Spooky Ghost Suckers. Made using a kleenex and black marker, this little treat turned craft will be fun to make with your kiddos and even more fun to give away this Halloween season!
Halloween is one of our favorite holidays. Something about the spooky decorations, orange and black colors, spiders, ghosts, witches, treats, and, of course, the costumes.
Our little (not so little) LouLaw has loved Halloween since she was a year and a half old. Seriously! After her second Halloween and trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, we played “trick or treat” in the pantry and dress up for months.
It wasn’t until our BooBaw was 2 years old (this last year) that she discovered the fun and excitement we all found within the Halloween season.
We got a jump start on the spooky festivities when BooBaw turned 3 years old in August. A month or so before her birthday she informed me she wanted a “spooky Halloween pumpkin patch paattty.” Say what?!?! Halloween in August! Yep! That’s what she asked for so that’s what she got. It was so fun! As part of the party favors for her Halloween party, we made these fun, super easy, DIY Spooky Ghost Suckers. The girls loved helping make them and they and the other kids enjoyed eating them even more.
As part of the party favors for BooBaw’s Halloween birthday party, we made these fun, super easy, DIY Spooky Ghost Suckers. The girls loved helping make them and they and the other kids enjoyed eating them even more.
When I say super easy… I mean super easy. Here’s what we used to make them.
- Suckers (Tootsie Pops or Blow Pops work great)
- Tissues (just plain old Kleenex tissues is all you need)
- Twist ties or white string (I used scissors to cut the twist ties in half so they weren’t so long)
- black Sharpie marker
We used one tissue for each sucker. I found using two made the tissue to thick at the base and didn’t look as nice. We placed the sucker in the center of the tissue then carefully tightened the tissue around it.
Once it was adequately tightened, we took a twist tie and wrapped it around the tissue-covered base. If you don’t have any twist ties you could most definitely use a white string or ribbon.
Lastly, we drew some spooky black ghost eyes and mouth on each sucker. We used a black Sharpie marker to do this. With the tissue being very thin, it only took a couple light dabs to get the eyes and mouth drawn.
Here’s the excited BooBaw, ready for her party. She wanted to eat that ghost before it was even wrapped. Haha. Don’t mind the crazy hair and chocolate on her face. The day before a party at our house is usually full of crafting, decorating, and playing. I promise I did her hair before her party. 🙂
These DIY Spooky Ghost Suckers are sure to put some BOO!!! in your next Halloween or trick-or-treating adventure.
