Halloween (essential oil infused optional) Marshmallow Treats

Hosting a Halloween party? Me too! And these (essential oils optional) treats make the cutest edible party favors! 

So cute! Halloween (essential oil infused optional) marshmallow treats @diyshowoff #makeitwithmichaels

Shopping List: (All supplies except marshmallows and essential oils are available at Michaels).

  • Wilson (Halloween) Decorating Kit (shown: jack-o-lantern and witches/ravens)
  • Recollections BOO Paper Straw Kit (or 24 color coordinating straws)
  • Celebrate Treat Bags (4x2x9.5 in, 25 count))
  • Wilson Candy Melts (I used orange and black)
  • Essential Oils (orange = Tangerine Vitality / Clove Vitality, black = peppermint Vitality) – I recommend THIS BRAND
  • Coordinating Ribbon
  • Jumbo Marshmallows

Time frame: about an hour. 

What I did: 

  1. Melt candy melts according to package instructions. (I use a glass mixing bowl/4 cup glass measuring cup.)
  2. Add 1-2 drops of essential oils and stir. (Frequently stir mixture with butter knife, keep mixture to one side/tilted for easier marshmallow swirling.)
  3. Poke straw into the center of a giant marshmallow.
  4. Swirl marshmallow into candy melt mixture. (Imperfections are cute! No need to be so serious about it. Aim for one pretty side.)
  5. Remove excess candy melt from bottom with a butter knife. 
  6. Place on wax paper. 
  7. Add candy decorations while candy melt surface is still wet. 
  8. Let cool completely.
  9. Add to treat bag and tie closed with ribbon. 

So cute and tasty too! So boutique-looking, right? Your guests will love them!

Nevermore Tree Centerpiece (an oldie by favorite craft)

Materials:

  • Vase, container, urn. 
  • Small branch (desired size that fits your container). Choose one that has several branch-offs to look more like a tree.
  • Black spray paint
  • Styrofoam cone
  • Handful of dry moss. Other options: shredded newspaper, crinkled paper
  • Accessories: faux crows/ravens, plastic spiders, cotton spider webbing, ribbon
  • Optional: hot glue

The Raven Nevermore Halloween Party Ideas @diyshowoff

Tutorial:
1. Spray-paint branch black and add a touch of black to dried moss and let them dry.
2. Using the bottom of my tree branch, I poked a hole into the circular side of my cone. Insert the Styrofoam cone into container with the circular side/hole facing up. You can secure your foam to the container. I didn’t.
3. Insert the branch into the Styrofoam hole. Secure with hot glue if needed.
4. Cover styrofoam with dried moss, crinkled paper or shredded paper. Glue into place if desired.
5.  ACCESSORIZE: String dried moss and spider webs to branches (drag the spider webbing). Attach ravens. I used black twist ties to attach some of my crows, others are just propped on branches. I did use hot glue to attach a few plastic spiders and added a couple of snips of sheer ribbon here and there for a little added whimsy.
