Caramel Apple Wedges -- Yum!

 Need a treat for the Festivities?   I tried a different version of the Caramel Apple.....


I made a wedge.


You need:


Caramels
apples
milk
lemon juice
craft sticks
wax paper


Prepair the apples first by cutting them in fourths and taking off the core parts.  Line up the apples on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.  Next unwrap the caramel and melt the caramel and the milk in the microwave.  I used a 2 cup glass measuring container. When the mixture is smooth, pour over the apples.  Poke a craft stick into each apple slice.  Refrigerate to solidify.  Eat!!!


Too Good!

Spider web

My dd is insisting on decorating for Halloween this year. In the past two days we've made spiders, ghosts, a spider web, a cat, and candy corn bunting. Today is plastic bottle luminaries day, from choosetothrive blog.  But I just wanted to show you our spider web that has pretty good curb appeal.
We put small nails in the large octagon shape and one nail in the middle. Then just wrapped black yarn around the nails and tied it off. We hung plastic bag ghosts (bags over plastic balls) and pom pom spiders (with pipe cleaner legs) from the web.
The candy corn bunting was a paper plate painted with a yellow circle and an orange circle around the edge. We cut the plate into 8 pie pieces, hole punched the edges and laced yarn through it. We hung it with sticky tack.
Last is the cat she drew and cut out. We used a glue stick sparingly to adhere it to the inside of the window.
She is have a spooky good time.
