I’m Jen, the party girl behind Passion-for-Parties.com,
and I am super excited to be here guest-posting on The 36th Avenue!
Today I’m sharing with you an adorable Halloween treat that your kiddos will love!
I hope you enjoy it!
These Witch push-up pops are just too stinkin’ cute for words!
Push-up pops are all the rage right now, so I wanted to put a fun holiday twist on this popular treat.
With just a few simple embellishments and some green Jello, these Halloween goodies were born.
Push-up pop containers (two containers for each push-up pop)
Black crepe paper
Mini polka-dot cupcake wrappers
Red and black Sharpies
For each witch’s hat, cut one 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ square from black cardstock. Trim the top edge of the square to resemble a rounded edge, as seen in the image above. Roll into a cone shape and secure with double-sided tape.
Cut one 2-inch circle from black cardstock for each hat. I used a 2-inch circle punch to make the job easy. Flatten the mini cupcake liners; secure the circle to the center of the back side of the liner.
Add a small amount of hot glue to the edges of the cone, then secure to the top of the cupcake liner.
Measure a length of ribbon to wrap around the base of the cone (mine was cut between 3 and 3 1/2 inches), then secure to the cone with hot glue. Cut a small rectangle out of gold paper. Cut out the center to resemble a buckle, then adhere to the center of the ribbon.
For each skirt, cut one 6 1/4″ length of ribbon, and one 15″ x 2 3/4″ length of each color of tulle (image 1).
Layer the tulle strips on top of each other and align with the edge of the ribbon, secure with hot glue (see image 2).
Fold the tulle back on itself to create a pleat; secure with hot glue (image 3). Repeat all the way to the end of the ribbon (image 4).
Use hot glue to secure the completed skirt to the bottom edge of the push-up container.
Attach eyes to each witch with dabs of hot glue. Use a red Sharpie to draw a mouth on each witch. Add eyebrows or other details that you’d like with a black Sharpie.
Use the disk from the spare container you’ve designated for this project, and secure it to the bottom of the stick to create a stand.
Fill with green jello and allow to set. Top with hats.
Note:These are not sealed containers and the Jello leaks a bit before setting. I recommend placing the containers on a foil-lined tray to catch the drips and avoid a mess in your refrigerator.
Aren’t these fun?!!
