Halloween Party over at Decorate to Celebrate!!

Hello My Crafty Friends,
Welcome to another challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate!! The challenge this week is to create Decorations for your Halloween Party!  

I know all of you are planning and have lots of great ideas for your decorations and I can't wait to see all your entries over at Decorate to Celebrate,  you can enter your projects HERE and also check out all the projects from our Design Team! 

Thank you my sweet friends for all the get well wishes! I'm feeling a lot better:)  I hope to catch up and comment on all your lovely blogs real soon!!!! THANK YOU for stopping by to check out my projects you guys are the BEST!
A chocolate cupcake topped with some crushed Ore Cookies to make it look like dirt with the finger sticking out! I used the Marshmallow Circus Peanuts and a black jelly bean for the finger.  You can check out Skip to My Lou's post HERE which is where I saw this awesome cupcake idea and had to give it a try!! 
These cupcakes are definitely what I'm taking to our annual Halloween Party!! 
I apologize for the dark photos on the pom pom's
I created this Pom Pom with some flying bats which was super easy to make and you of course can add ghosts, pumpkins or what you desire for your Halloween Party and hang through out your home!  You can watch this video HERE to see how to make this Pom Pom.
I created the dangling bats by using some Tombow to adhere the twine and each bat back to back and I then used a mini glue dot to adhere the twine to the Pom Pom.  You can certainly sew the bats together like in the video!
