Halloween is coming up soon! If you’re anything like me, you had lofty goals of all the zillions of cute Halloween decorations and recipes you were going to try. But alas, who’s got time for that?
Now it’s go time! Time for something quick, simple and festive!
There’s still time!!! Let’s do this!
All you need is creepy crawly gummy candy and wooden skewers (the kind you use for grilling). We got ours from our local candy shop and Amazon!
Put your candy onto the wood skewers. I liked starting from the top better. That way any sticky areas get covered up! Shape them to look like monsters. Easy.
Try not to eat all the gummies before you’re done (by far the hardest step!).
Use the sticks as cocktail stirrers or enjoy them as is!
Hope you have a fun, easy-going Halloween. It’s the little things. xx. Elsie

What a creative idea…So love these skewers! You could make these every season? love your blog and hope your doing well. Your such a great mama, your kids will always remember the little things you do. I have 2 grown girls, and when they were young I use to write little notes and put them in their lunch boxes, my daughter told me it made her feel so special! Thanks for your inspiring ideas, we need fun & unique, uplifting projects these days?? Melanie
I LOVE this idea!!! So cute! And I could eat gummis forever!
So fun! I’d go into a sugar coma.
I love these! (And gummy candies are my favorite). These would be good on their own as dessert, even without the cocktail part! Quick question, though: what cocktails would you pair these with? I know you’ve got tons to choose from in your archives. Any suggestions?
This is such a cute and easy idea for some party food. I think my favourite thing about it is the teeth!
these are SO cute!
These are great! I love gummy candies. 🙂
This looks like sooo much fun! *I would the 1 eating all the candy b4 placing on the skewers! 😉
Gummy treats are my favorite! This looks like a sweetness overload! Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 😉
This is such a fun idea! Might just have to make some of these if I’m home for Halloween! xx
How fun! Your creativity knows no bounds. 🙂
This is one of the best halloween ideas I’ve seen this year and totally quick and doable for adults and children’s party… now can I find monster candy in time for Friday. That’s the question!
Now this is something that I can handle! Too cute and I think the kiddos will get a kick out of this 😉 Great idea!
Hahaha.. That is a great idea. I like it.
Hi, what a cute post! Small question: where can I find the links to your friends-bloggers? I’m looking for ideas for a birthcard (Christmas baby!). Thx! Or do you have exampels of cute birthcards for a babygirl? Thx again! Tine
These look creepy… but delicious!
There’s never too much (starts singing to the tune of Cameo) candy! Happy Monday ABM fam 🙂
These are so awesome!! I don’t know why I’ve never seen something like this before, it’s genius!
