The plan was simple, make something super cute for Halloween using the popcorn box and what else was on hand. My mind’s eye thought of a cute haunted house decoration to go next to a Halloween popcorn snack (recipe below). Oh but my mind’s eye and what my hands make have two very different visions. The result is a bit of a fail.
Why a fail? Well, it wasn’t meant to be what it is. At first I was going to do something quiet different, but it just didn’t work. I was running out of time to finish by the deadline, and my mind was blank. After all, we only had one box to work with, if it got messed up, well, that was just too bad.
Then I was inspired at the last moment possible to do something a bit like these houses from Pottery Barn. If you click over there you will see why mine is a fail. Sure it’s black and covered in glitter, but that’s where the similarity ends.
At least it glows (use a LED votive only, lest you burn down your popcorn box house).
Fun and easy Halloween Popcorn:
1 bag of sweet microwave popcorn (you can also use regular)
1.5 cup white chocolate chips
Pop the popcorn according to package directions. Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave at 30 second intervals until smooth, stir in between. Empty the popcorn into a large bowl, then pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn. Mix well, and let it cool for 2 mins before sprinkling with the Halloween sprinkles.
Luckily you can see what other, more talented bloggers, came up with!
