Teeny Pumpkins

Can you keep a secret? It ought to come in handy. Inside this little pumpkin is a treasure trove of candy. Just a fun little project for kids. Or adults who THINK they are kids like me. A sweet little give away on Halloween or grin inducing party favor that even the adults in the group will enjoy! We used them to ~BOO~ know. You leave a little something on a neighbor's
  porch with a note that says, "You have been BOOed!"

It's pretty simple...after all. *I* can do it so you KNOW it's simple!

2/3 cup of assorted candies, such as candy corn and chocolate kisses Plastic sandwich bag 10-inch square of orange tissue paper (double layer) Two 10-inch pieces of raffia Green pipe cleaner Pencil

1. Put the candy in the plastic sandwich bag.

2. Place the bag in the center of the doubled tissue paper square. Pull the corners of the tissue together at the top and twist them into a stem.

3. To hold the tissue in place, wrap both pieces of raffia around the base of the stem and knot them.

4. To make the stem tendrils, wrap the ends of the pipe cleaner around a pencil. Twist the center of the curled pipe cleaner around the base of the stem as shown.

Just have FUN!

This is a fun idea! Since we are busy that weekend, I won't be doing anything cute like that. But a good idea to file away for another time!

Really cute and thoughtful! I want to Boo some neighbors and friends at school. This project is about my speed. :)

These are cute even for a quick Thanksgiving treat. I'm always looking for something different to take to a Thanksgiving dinner we go to every year. I believe this will be this year's goody. Thanks for the great idea.

Hi Susie!

Oh that sounds soooo good... but I wouldn't have to worry about how long it keeps. It'd be gone in a day!! I've got to try your recipe to see how it is. It's got buttermilk in it so how could it not??

Thanks for your kind & loving comment. Hugs, Sherry
