1. The Table:
The web is simply masking tape. Use a fabric tablecloth and masking tape that will remove easily post party. You could also use a disposable party tablecloth though the tape likely won’t remove easily for future use depending on the material.
To create the web, start with a long strip of tape from one corner of the table diagonally to the opposing corner. Then add a few radiating strips from the same beginning corner. Go back and cut small pieces to fill in between each of these strips. You could also begin in the middle with criss-crossing strips to the center of the web.
2. The Plates:
Give the spider plates a little personality with long, crimped legs and mismatched eyes.
For the legs, cut eight 8.5 inch long half-inch strips of black cardstock with your paper trimmer, and run each leg through the paper crimper. Fold each strip in half and fold back a small tab at each end. Hot glue one tab under the rim of a black paper plate. Continue with four total legs on each side. Punch circles for eyes and hot glue to the edge of the plate facing each guest.
3. The Menu Cards and Food Picks:
To keep the menu easy, you can serve assorted sandwiches. To keep the menu fun, you can call them “sand-witches”!
A super simple way to make witch boots is by using a very unexpected tool, the Boundary Waters border punch. Run a 3/4 inch wide strip of black cardstock through the border punch and cut into sections as shown, at the bottom of each large curl. Trim off the small curl with scissors and cut a small triangle into the heel.
Add a striped leg to each boot and adhere to toothpicks. Insert in pairs into sandwiches for a non-spooky take on witches. Mix it up by adding stars and witch hats. The limited edition ‘Hats Off’ lever punch is a great witch hat. Add a small trim of color and a 1/4 inch star for easy embellishment.
These witch legs would also make adorable cupcake toppers.
4. The Cups:
A jack-o-lantern face could add instant personality to all kinds of party items. Cut it with your detail scissors from black carsdtock to add to orange items, such as these paper cups.
5. The Goodie Bags:
Send your guests home with a goodie bag featuring one last way to turn something spooky into kid-friendly. Stamp a spider image directly onto small treat bags and cut a small slit using a craft knife to insert white string, which is taped inside to secure. Staple the string at the top of the folded bag once stuffed for an interactive web. To give the spider a sillier look for the kids, add small googly eyes!
Whether you are planning a spooky or not-so-spooky Halloween party, be sure to put your Fiskars tools to work to make the job both easy and fun!
