Free Idea: Halloween Invites

This year Willow took Inspiration from Martha Stewart's Severed Finger Invites and made them her own way.

What you will need:
  • Witch finger candy pretzel mold
  • Plaster
  • Cups
  • Stirring Rods
  • Old Ivy Acrylic Paint
  • Licorice Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Acrylic Shiny Spray Sealer
  • Coffin Treat Box (Down load here)
  • Your Invites
  • Model Magic Putty (or silly putty will work)
  • Ribbon (We used leftover Halloween ribbon)
  • Self adhesive Magnets
  • Brown riffita or garden twine
Clean and dry your witch finger mold. Place the model clay where the finger ends and just before the grove that holds the pretzel rod. Make sure you place enough there to be even with the top of the mold. This will allow you to have thick fingers. Mix and pour your plaster in small batches as directions state. Let dry for the full 24 hours. Discard the pieces of clay after you make all the fingers you plan too!

Paint the green part of the finger first then the nails. After the fingers dry take them outside and spray your acrylic sealer. Let the fingers dry for the recommended time that your spray says too. While they are drying cut your ribbon to about 3-4 inches or smaller if you can manage tying small bows. Cut about 1 inch size magnets.
Make your treat boxes as the instructions say.
Invitations: Ours were made on the Avery post card paper printed front and back. One side was a menu the other had games, time, place who to talk to, and general reminder about dressing up. Roll up into scrolls as tight as possible and tie with twine.

After the fingers are dry tie your ribbon around your finger and place a magnet on the back. Place it in the coffin and an invite.

If you noticed we have something on the inside of the lid we have:
Your Invited to a Halloween Party
time and date and contact number and e-mail. We printed them out using small labels.
Once everything is inside Tie up with twin and hand them to friends.

Willow made over 40 of these the last week.
You can also use favor boxes and the fake moss method as well. But we wanted something more fun as they were passed out to Willow's Kids Classrooms. These also make great party favors! Sure to make people talk!

If you are wanting a craft kit just ask willow will hook you up!
