With Halloween goodies flooding your local stores, you can’t help but to feel a little inclined to grab a few pumpkins and bags of candy to celebrate the holiday. There is such an abundant number of fun recipes and crafts for Halloween that it would be a waste to not take advantage of them. Dracula denture cookies, teethy pumpkins – the possibilities are so endless that we decided to feature our favorite Halloween projects for this week’s post. Be sure to take a peek at our top 5 pins and help us spread some of that Halloween spirit!

1. Ooey Gooey Monster Eye Cookies

You’re standing around and can’t seem to shake the feeling that something’s watching you. Don’t be surprised – it’s probably these ooey gooey monster eyes. Eyeballs don’t sound like the most appetizing treats, but once you get a bite of these, you won’t be able to see yourself eating anything else.

1. Painted Pumpkins

No need to slave away gutting and carving your pumpkin to make it into a fun Halloween accessory. You can save yourself the trouble of getting messy by buying a few bottles of spray paint and giving your pumpkin this ombre glow. Not your tastes? Look at all these other no carve pumpkins to give yourself some ideas!

2. Bubbling Potion Drink

No proper witch on Halloween is without her precious bubbling potions and spells. Concoct this ghoulish little beverage to add to your Halloween festivities. Mix the lime sherbet and lemon-lime soda to get the illusion of a foaming potion and watch your guest become spellbound by its deliciousness.

3. Hanging Spider Balloons

Admit it – most of us are at least slightly arachnophobic. Although, where’s the fun in Halloween if we can’t poke some fun at our fears? Make these friendly hanging spider decorations for your home to capture that contagious Halloween spirit. Don’t worry, they won’t bite!

4. Crunchy Bone Treats

Mmm…sweet, crunchy, and delicious bones – the perfect Halloween snack. Of course these are not real. Follow this bone-a fide recipe to make a bowlful of snack-able bones by covering pretzel sticks and marshmallow in white chocolate.
