Ghost Poop Wins the Halloween Pin Race

Posted by on September 2, 2014

A few weeks ago, I posted about my most popular original ideas on Pinterest. Now it’s time for a look back at some wickedly fun original Halloween projects and recipes that have been most popular on Pinterest. And can I say that the competition for Halloween re-pins is tough! Some cute ideas, but nowhere near the interest of, say, the college dorm checklist.

 

#1 Monster Mix Snack Mix

Shower to Monster Mix 2012 043

With four simple ingredients (mummy scabs, ghost poop, witch warts and goblin teeth don’t cha know?) and printable tags, this easy and yummy project has been re-pinned 166 times and liked 8 times since its posting two years ago. The crazy thing is, I adapted and improved on an idea that I got off Pinterest! Get the article and the downloads here.

 

# 2 Eyeball Confections

Peanut Butter Eyeballs

Ahhh this is still one of my favorite Halloween creations. Several years ago I repurposed a Christmas recipe that was given to me in high school into a Halloween incarnation. The results were just as delicious and really fun to decorate. It’s a no-bake winner with 22 re-pins and 1 like.

 

#3 Raven Candles

Some great ideas come from seeing something at Pottery Barn and thinking, “That’s nice, but not at that price” and then coming with a similar look for a lot less. That was the case with these Edgar Allen Poe-inspired candle wraps. Easy and inexpensive, this Raven look has been re-pinned 20 times and liked once.

 

#4 Vampire Martini Glasses

Ghoulishly fabulous for serving up a Halloween brew.

Ghoulishly fabulous for serving up a Halloween brew.

Time was, I’d spend hours concocting and sampling a seasonal cocktail. It was tough research, but someone had to do it. (Not so much any longer. Just a lifestyle change.) And then it became about the glassware, too, and these vampire martini glasses do not disappoint! They serve up non-alcoholic beverages well, too, with 18 re-pins and 1 like.

 

#5 Witch’s Kitchen

Witch's Kitchen overview

I admit, I start thinking about Halloween sometime in late July and wait impatiently for my favorite online and local craft stores to bring in fresh, new things for me to play with. Last year, though, my best ideas came to life with just a few things I had about the house. Some jars. A bit of bark. And the thought of Macbeth. A theme was born, along with my most elaborate Halloween collection to date. This fun project has been re-pinned 17 times with 1 like.
