Boo Bag & Candy corn recipe w/ @elmers #GlueNGlitter


Alright who’s ready for the sugar fest Halloween festivities to begin?! I made one last minute Halloween BOO bag to “Boo” some of the neighbors and to pass out candy with. I’m also sharing a super easy candy corn recipe! I had so much fun making this for Elmers #gluenglitter campaign. You can read more about my shop here.

(Sorry the pics aren’t the greatest. It was late and on my I Phone.)

  1. Measure your bag and cut out your Halloween paper the same length. I did my bottom layer 6 inches and the top layer 5 inches.
  2. Glue the top layer of paper to the bottom layer using your glue stick.
  3. Attach the paper to a paper bag using Elmers Glue spots.
  4. Assemble your pinwheel. You can find the whole tutorial here. elmers2 collage
  5. Stamp your letters onto a white piece of paper.
  6. Glue Boo sign onto a pennant banner. I made this 3-dimensional by folding in the corners 1/2 in on both side. Then I snipped the corners off to create the diagonals.
  7. I thought the string was a little boring, so I snipped those right off.
  8. Then I attached a piece of ribbon, tying double knots on each end.

Now fill your bag with treats!! Candy will certainly do… but I thought it would be fun to make a       Candy Corn Mix. I know some of you are still wondering what to bring to your Halloween parties this weekend. This recipe is for YOU! And trust me… everyone will love it!

This is recipe is seriously SO easy to make and takes less than 10 minutes.
