There is another new teacher meeting this afternoon and, after the success of the apples & caramel dip that I made for the September meeting, I have been appointed to bring the treats for the rest of the year. Talk about pressure! Whatever I make must be easy, inexpensive, and appeal to both guys and girls! I think I may have risen to the challenge this month! I found something similar here where children drew jack-o-lantern faces on orange soda bottles with a black marker as a Halloween party favor. I decided to use faces created out of black vinyl and I absolutely love how they turned out!
You will need some bottles of orange soda. I looked and looked for bottles of Orange Crush but I couldn't find them anywhere. I eventually found bottles of Stewart's Orange 'n' Cream soda. I removed all of the labels from the bottles then used some Goof Off to remove the glue residue and washed them thoroughly in hot soapy water. After drying the bottles I added the vinyl jack-o-lantern faces. I don't have a Cricut or a Silhouette so I had my friend Heidi make them for me. Then I tied some green ribbon around the top to look like a stem and leaves. Really easy!
I think these would be a really cute gift for neighbors as well as colleagues! Give them a try!
