kooky crafts inject a little fun into Halloween decor

1. Pop the popcorn if necessary. Transfer popcorn to a large bowl, and remove any unpopped kernels. Set aside.

2. Melt marshmallows and butter together on low heat in a saucepan. Add five drops of green food coloring and mix well. (Depending on the shade of green desired, you may want to add more food coloring.)

3. Once you are satisfied with the color, carefully pour the green mixture all over the popcorn. Using your hands, mix together until the popcorn is well coated. (Tip: Because of the heat from the green mixture, we suggest wearing plastic food gloves for this step.) Then, taking a large handful of popcorn, form it into a ball. Because of the mixture stickiness, this part can be tricky. Work fast to pack the popcorn together. The slower you go, the more the popcorn will stick to your hand.

4. Press one craft stick each into the tops of the popcorn balls so that about two thirds of the stick is still visible. Set the pop Burberry Handbags corn balls aside.

5. Microwave a bowl of caramels for about 20 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir. Heat for 20 more seconds, then stir again. When the caramels are fully melted, using a spoon, drizzle caramel all over the popcorn balls. (Tip: To add a little more pizzazz to your faux caramel apples, drizzle them with melted chocolate for a double dose of sweet.) Let the caramel harden, then package each popcorn ball in a cellophane bag and tie with a pretty ribbon.

You should have three triangles with a black border and three triangles with an orange border. 3. Draw and cut the letters that spell out We free handed the letters, alternating between two colors of construction paper. You can use stencils, or an even easier option, stick on letters. When you have the individual letters ready, glue each onto its own triangle. (Reminder: The banner triangles will be facing points down, not up.) 4. Cut about 3 4 feet of ribbon. Lay the ribbon out flat, and place the triangles so that they are centered on the ribbon (check your spelling!). Apply a line of adhesive to the top of the triangles (again, facing pointy side down), and adhere the ribbon on top.
