Our church Trunk or Treat is always a blast and this year I spent hours in the woods gathering herbs and in the kitchen brewing up potions or writing down spells.
The biggest hit was the Sip N’ Nip potion bottles. They chose a potion from the list and I handed them this odd bottle. Most of the kids had never seen such a strange candy as a wax bottle with something colored inside. The parents were pretty savvy for the most part. I also had regular candy and a bowl of little creepy non-candy spiders, skeletons, rats, etc. Yum.
The bottles were from around the house and some finds at Goodwill with printed labels. My jars of dried basil and oregano now sport creepy labels . I used a glue gun to label a few old books and then covered with tissue paper. Since I used dark red and blue paper, I didn’t really have to do much else except rub some gold stamp pad ink over the raised letters. The large sign was hand painted and the small one was a quick printout and some foam core.
And it was all fun as usual.
