Halloween Food

Well the wet weather in Brisbane has made me get into doing a few more bits and pieces for the party. I thought I would have a trial run with a snack that the kids will have on their desert table - Popcorn Pumpkin!

I was surprised, I thought that there would be a whole lot more fiddling about but it only took a matter of a minute and I have my little Popcorn Pumpkin.

I had cut out the orange crepe paper first by just tracing around a plate. I made a batch of popcorn (which my youngest processed to scoff!) I wrapped a large handful into cling wrap then wrapped the crepe paper around the popcorn bringing everything to the top. Finishing with Green Florist Tape to form the stork of the Pumpkin.

Chloe couldn't wait to rip it open to dig into the popcorn!

Easy Peasy! Will be a little job the morning of the party to ensure the popcorn is nice and fresh :)

I think these displayed beautifully will work a treat, might even make one or two into jack-o-lanterns...
