Halloween is one of those 'holidays' that I haven't really embraced.
I have however, come to enjoy the many crafts and creative costumes people
come up with. (As longs as they are not too creepy or bloody)
This particular project, I had a lot of fun creating and it's so very simple to make.
I am actually looking for excuses to make more of these trays.
All you need is an inexpensive tray. This one is from Dollarama (the canadian dollar store)
Some Epoxy resin, which is available at any craft or art store.
Some ants or spiders and some hot glue.
I simply glued the ants in place with hot glue at the bottom of the tray.
I then followed the package instructions for the epoxy resin and
carefully poured it over the ants. Allow to dry for 48-72 hrs and you're done.
I love how the ants look like they're about to carry away the cookies.
The best part is, that epoxy is food safe once it's dry.
Wash by hand with soap and warm water prior to contact with food.
And here's another fun little idea....
How about gluing some crawly ants up the straws?
Fun right? Just make sure that the ants are low enough down the straw.
I do not recommend giving these straws to children under 3, unless you are closely monitoring them and you know they won't be eating the plastic ants ;). I know this is obvious stuff, but you know...
So there you go, super easy and in my opinion, super adorable !
That's my kinda a Halloween! :)
And what about these amazing Halloween ideas from a few of my pals?
