Halloween Gumball Machine Candy Dish Craft

Halloween Gumball Machine Candy Dish Craft - A ghastly delight for all of the monsters, witches and ghouls in your life.

Halloween is my second favorite holiday next to Christmas. I enjoy breaking out spooky decor and doing the house up right in ghastly, ghoulish delight. This year I decided to add to my decorations with this fun Halloween gumball machine candy dish craft.

Instead of the traditional gumball machine I wanted to create a gumball machine look that you might find in a town full of witches and ghouls. To achieve this I skipped the traditional red and went with a black, green and grey color scheme. I have to say that I was so delighted and happy with the final result that I think I may make more to gift to people as a grownup Halloween treat.

How do you make this fun Halloween Gumball Machine Candy Dish craft?

This really is an easy craft to make. The hardest part is waiting for paint and stain to dry.

Halloween Gumball Machine Candy Dish Craft - A ghastly delight for all of the monsters, witches and ghouls in your life.

Supplies:

1 round glass floral/rose bowl (my dollar store carries them in two sizes)

terra cotta clay flower pot

1 terra cotta clay saucer

1 flat washer

1 wing nut

1 round wooden bead

black spray paint

grey acrylic paint

green glass stain

hot glue sticks

hot glue gun

Jar Jewelry Halloween glass label (optional)

Candy

Halloween Gumball Machine Candy Dish Craft - A ghastly delight for all of the monsters, witches and ghouls in your life.

Instructions:

  1. To get started you will need to make sure that your glass bowl will fit to completely cover the bottom (part with small hole) of your clay flower pot. You will also need to make sure that the clay saucer will cover the opening of the glass bowl without it being to large or to small.
  2. To stain the glass bowl you have two options. You can either use a paint or foam brush to paint the outside or you can put the stain inside the bowl and turn it to coat the interior. If you do the interior be sure to use wrapped candy. The glass stain will take a long time to dry. You should let it dry for at least 24 hours.
  3. Spray paint the clay flower pot, saucer and wooden bead. I paint the inside and the outside of the pot and saucer. Let them dry completely.
  4. Paint the washer and wing nut grey and let dry.
  5. Turn the flower pot upside down so the small hole is at the top and use the glue gun to put glue on it. Then attach the bottom of the glass bowl to the flower pot.
  6. Place the clay saucer upside down and put a bead of hot glue in the center to attach the wooden bead.
  7. On the clay pot affix the painted washer and wing nut so that they look like the opening of the gumball machine and the turning knob. This addition really gives this craft the look of a real gumball machine.
  8. If you are using a Halloween label affix it to the front of the glass bowl so that it lines up above of the washer and wing nut.
  9. Fill the glass bowl with candy and place the saucer top on the glass bowl. I used chocolates wrapped to look like gumballs and individually wrapped gumballs that looked like eyeballs. I liked the look of the two different sizes.

Halloween Gumball Machine Candy Dish Craft - A ghastly delight for all of the monsters, witches and ghouls in your life.

Some notes about this craft:

  • Use wrapped candies as this candy dish is painted.
  • This is not designed to and should not be washed.
  • You can run some hot glue along the inside of the clay saucer that will sit on the glass bowl to keep the glass and clay from clinking loudly.
  • I found the Halloween Jar Jewelry labels I used at Joann.

 

 

 


Halloween Fang Printable Perfect for Class Parties

by Jennifer Wieland
Halloween fang printable perfect for class parties or trick-or-treat handouts!

My two youngest boys love all things Halloween that involve spooky, gory and gross. I wanted to create a printable that I could pair with something that they would find amusing. I also wanted it to be something a little more mature. Something that tweens and teens would be amused by and not find babyish. I came up with the idea for this fun Halloween fang printable that’s perfect for class parties for tweens.

Halloween fang printable perfect for class parties or trick-or-treat handouts! 

This printable is a little on the macabre side and not at all cutesy like most of my printables. Since my two youngest boys are getting older though they like less of the cutesy and more of the ghastly and I am oddly fond of this creepy creation. The styles and colors are the perfect blend of classic vampire!

Halloween fang printable perfect for class parties or trick-or-treat handouts!

When I first came up with this idea for this Halloween fang printable when I was strolling through the dollar store. There I spotted bags of individually packaged fangs that also had a pouch of red liquid candy in them so that the plastic fang chompers could look like they’d just been in someone’s neck. I know, maybe it’s a little dark for some kids but I know there are plenty who are a bit older who will get a kick out of them. I can just picture my little monsters trying out their fangs and candy all while trying to say, “I want to suck your blood!” in their best vampire voices.

Halloween is right around the corner and that means classroom parties and treats for all the little ghosts and goblins that come knocking on your door as well. With all of the food allergies many schools no longer allow food or candy for class parties and Halloween trick-or-treating leaves many parents of children with food allergies in fear. Today, I am going to share with you an option that goes beyond the standard pencil or eraser that you no doubt, have countless of littering a drawer in your house. How about a Halloween mask gift idea plus printable to jazz it up to set your little monster apart at their class party or make your house the most sought after by food allergy families?

Halloween Mask Gift Idea Plus Printable - A perfect option for classroom parties or trick-or-treaters with food allergies!

This Halloween mask gift idea is such a simple one. If you’ve ever been to a craft store I’m sure that in the children’s section, seasonal area or near the registers you have seen those inexpensive wooden masks that are usually about $1. They are meant to be colored in by kids and you can find them in different varieties year round. This is such a perfect thing to hand out at Halloween since masks go with Halloween just like candy. Even better? Craft stores always have coupons so this can help cut the cost of this already inexpensive idea!Halloween Mask Gift Idea Plus Printable - A perfect option for classroom parties or trick-or-treaters with food allergies!

All of these wooden masks have wooden handles for the children to hold the masks up to their faces and these handles make a great spot for a wraparound printable. I created a simple and fun one to attach to each mask. There is a blank area on the back of each printable for your child to write who the mask is to and from our if you are simply handing these out to trick-or-treaters then you can leave it blank or sign it with your family name.

Fun Pokémon Lunch Box Notes

by Jennifer Wieland
Pokémon Fun Facts and Joke Lunch Box Notes
If your house is anything like mine then you have at least one kid that is Pokémon crazy right now. For me this seems like something I have been dealing with for decades. It’s possible that I should feel that way since that’s because I have hearing all about Pokémon for almost two decades. My oldest is 23 and has been a Pokémon fan since he was five. He got his first Pokémon cards and game way back in 1998 and we waited in line on a day off of school to see the first Pokémon movie the day it came out. Now it’s my three youngest who are all about the Pokémon games, cards and shows. It was because of all of this and with school just starting that I thought it would be perfect to create some fun Pokémon lunch box notes.

Pokémon Fun Facts and Joke Lunch Box Notes

I know you were thinking, “Nearly two decades? Yeah, right!” As you can see though I have definitely got my moneys worth out of that GameBoy Advance SP and the original Pokémon Red game. Six kids later and it’s still working… LOL!

Pokémon Fun Facts and Joke Lunch Box Notes

Some of these Pokémon lunch box notes have fun facts for the budding Pokémon fan. While others have a silly Pokémon joke for your child to share with their friends at lunchtime to get a laugh out of everyone. All of them have Pokémon pictures and a Pokeball motif for the background design.

Pokémon Fun Facts and Joke Lunch Box Notes

It’s super easy to get a set of these for your kids. All you have to do to print off these Pokémon lunch box notes is to click on the image below. That will then open up a printable PDF version of the lunch box notes for you. You can either print them at that time or you can save them for future use.

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Launcher – Summer Camp Fun Plus a Discount

by Jennifer Wieland
5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.


 

It’s getting nicer and nicer outside with each passing day and the kids are itching for the end of school so that they can play all day and have loads of fun. One of the great things about spring and summer is that there are so many cheap things to create for hours of fun. My kids love when I let them make this 5 minute DIY marshmallow launcher. When we make them it’s like summer camp is at our house. They run around the yard and even the house during bad weather shooting marshmallows at each other.

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Quick, cheap and easy are words I love to hear when coming up with things for the kids to make. These 5 minute DIY marshmallow launchers fit the bill on all three. You can pick up every single thing you need at the dollar store and more than likely have some or all of the items at home already.

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

SUPPLIES

styrofoam cup(s)

balloon(s)

duct tape 

marshmallows

scissors

INSTRUCTIONS

Cut an inch or two off of the bottom of the styrofoam cup.

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Blow up the balloon but do not tie it. Let the air out so  it can deflate. This helps to get the balloon stretchy. 

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Tie the end of the balloon as you would if it was inflated. Cut about 1/2″ off of the rounded top.

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Open up the end of the balloon that you just cut and stretch it to fit over the bottom (cut end) of the cup. 

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Use duct tape to secure the balloon to the cup. I like colorful or decorative duct tape. It makes the shooters more lively and each kid can pick a color/design to customize theirs. 

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Now your marshmallow shooter is all ready to go. Pop a marshmallow inside, pull the tied balloon end and let it go! Watch the marshmallow sail through the air. 

One of the things I love about this project is that it’s a great way to add some science into your children’s play without your kids noticing at all. Here’s how:

  • Use both mini and regular marshmallows. Test to see which one goes farther.
  • Hold the cup at different angles. Which angle made the marshmallow shoot farthest?

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Teacher appreciation is next week. That means it’s time to get creative and find fun and unique ways to show your kid’s teacher(s) how much you appreciate everything they have done throughout the year. I know a lot of teachers who like to garden. In fact one of our local schools has a garden that some of the teachers and staff volunteer in. I thought what would be a fun teacher appreciation gardening gift idea? Why, a garden tool and some special seed packets of course!

What I really love about this idea is that not only is it a gift that would be used and appreciated by a gardening teacher but it’s also VERY budget friendly. Seed packets are cheap and found at all kinds of stores in the spring. Gardening tools are actually a great dollar store find I love. 

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

SUPPLIES

Seed packets

printer paper

tape or glue

whole punch

twine

gardening tools or gloves

INSTRUCTIONS

Print the seed packet printable and cut out the envelopes on the black lines. 

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Once the envelopes are cut out, take a seed packet and fold down about 1/2″ at the top. Tape to hold in place. turn one of the cut out envelopes over and place a seed packet on the back side.

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Fold the edges to form the envelope and then tape or glue the edges.

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Your seed packet is now nicely wrapped in a thank you to teacher. Now you will also be able to feel that there is a place at the top where you can safely punch a whole. 

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Once you have the whole punched you can thread some twine through and tie it to a gardening tool or pair of gloves.

8 Awesome Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

Wayfair Housewarming Party - Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas #wayfairhomemaker

Wayfair Housewarming Party - Teacher APpreciation Gift Ideas #wayfairhomemaker

It’s hard to believe that the end of another school year is quickly approaching! My kids will soon be moving on from their teachers they currently have and it’s time for me to thank them for the tremendous job they have done for them and the rest of their students this year. Having worked for our school district before and being an executive board member of our PTA I know how hard the school staff work each and every day.That’s why when I got to host and pick what I wanted to do for a Wayfair Housewarming Party I knew I wanted to focus on teacher appreciation gift ideas. Teacher Appreciation Day is May 3rd this year or you can always just wait and hand them out at the end of the school year. Either way, your child’s teacher will definitely appreciate these gift ideas. 

Being a printable lover, foodie, baker and all around sweets junkie I have some fun and easy ideas from past years here on My Sweet Sanity but I am also going to share some awesome ideas from some of the other Wayfair Homemakers as well.

Upcycled Pringles Can & a Free Teacher Appreciation Printable from My Sweet Sanity (That’s me!)

This is a great way to reuse something and turn it into something special. It’s a project the kids can help with and once the project is done the kids can also help bake a special cookie treat for their teacher to fill it with.

As a baker and someone who routinely baked for the staff when I worked for the district I can tell you how much a little sugar boost is loved during the day.

DIY Painter Tile Coasters from Wife in Progress

I absolutely adore this idea as a teacher appreciation gift! It’s inexpensive, your child can do it themselves and it’s so functional! Your child can let their artistic side come through with this project. Plus with all the warm weather everyone knows how much cups sweat so this would be a great way to help a teacher protect their desk and all the papers they have on it.

DIY Teacher Appreciation Gifts from Organized 31

I don’t know about you but for my kids being on IEPs and having special needs they have multiple teachers, aides and therapists that all deserve thank yous at the end of the year or sometimes at just random times. I love this easy, inexpensive and fun way to tell your child’s teachers thank you for all they do. I know the sugar and caffeine rush will also go a long way in making the days easier on them.

Candle Jar Succulent Garden from Wife in Progress

I am a huge fan of crafts that recycle or upcycle things that would be normally tossed into the trash and end up at some landfill. I also happen to burn a lot of candles here and am excited to give this a try not just as a teacher gift but for me as well. As for a teacher gift succulents in small planters like this are a great way to gift some greenery to a garden loving teacher with pots small enough for her to keep in class near the windows.

Teacher Appreciation Printable Gift Tag and Tea Gift Idea from My Sweet Sanity

I am a tea drinker and I know there are a lot of others that love the stuff as well. Last year I created this adorable lemon slice gift tag printable to attach to an insulated cup filled with different teas and sweeteners. This is a fun and useful idea because who couldn’t use an insulated cup especially a teacher when there are still many schools across the country without air conditioners. This will definitely help keep a teacher hydrated.

“Back to School Cake” from Tiger Strypes

This is a fun, cute and creative way to help a teacher replenish their school supplies for the next year! Plus, as we all know, every great celebration needs an equally great cake! You could even get creative and swap out the pencils for some fun can colorful pens or colored pencils. There are so many possibilities with this one and the great thing is you can get most of the supplies you’ll need to make this at the dollar store.

Free Teacher Appreciation Printable from Craving Some Creativity

This beautiful printable is delightful in its own right but I love how she used a ruler to make it into a stake that sits inside of a flower growing kit! What a perfect and special card and gift idea for a teacher who loves to garden! Plus, the DIY flower growing kit will make for a nice summer project one afternoon. After hours and hours of kids in a classroom I’m sure the quiet project will be a dream.

DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub from Wife in Progress

After a school year of dealing with rambunctious children all day long, every teacher deserves a little pampering. This simple homemade gift is easy to do and I’m sure will be appreciated as a way to get sore, tired feet summer ready. Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of peppermint or want a more summery scent, that’s no big deal. Just swap out the peppermint essential oil for something more refreshing like lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit.

Valentine’s Day Finger Laser Cards Printable for Kids

Valentine's Day Finger Laser Cards Printable for Kids

 

 

I am all about classroom parties! I am that mom that totally gets into it and wants to be a part of all of them for each of her kids. For my 3rd grade son’s Valentine’s Day party I wanted to do something fun for him and that he would love. Him being a complete and total boy, I knew he would absolutely love, love, love a comic book theme and what goes awesome with a comic book theme? Why, finger lasers of course! That my friends is how I came up with this freaking cute Valentine’s Day finger laser cards printable!

Valentine's Day Finger Laser Cards Printable for Kids

The inspiration for these came while wandering around Target and stalking the clearance sections. I found these four packs of finger lasers on clearance and just knew these would make a great Valentine’s Day handout for one of my boys. 

Valentine's Day Finger Laser Cards Printable for Kids

Then the fun began. I tried creating numerous cards to go with these but none of them really grabbed me as being the perfect fit for the finger lasers. That is until I made these comic book themed cards. I mean after all, don’t comic book villains and lasers often go hand in hand? Once i settled on the design I was then able to get the cards printed up, I cut them out, punched holes in them and took some twine and tide on the finger lasers. These cards would also work great with glow sticks or mini flashlights if you can’t find finger lasers.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and as a parent and PTA board member I know that means class parties are in my future.

I’m sure these Classroom Valentine’s Day Card Gift Idea – Watercolor Art sets will be a hit with the kids and the parents.

Since I’m in the Chicago suburbs our kids spend a lot of time cooped up during the winter months due to all of the cold and snow. It’s always important to have things on hand that can help stave off the boredom of a cold, gray and snowy day. My kids love being able to make crafts or create art projects and so do most kids. That’s why I thought the idea of watercolor sets would be fun!
