Katie from Twin Stripe guest posted when I had Colette about a year and a half ago- Valentine's Day surprise balls. When she sent me the idea, I had no clue what surprise balls were!? I was missing out! And, I loveeee hers!!
Such a cute, simple, thoughtful gift idea! And, I always thought it would be perfect to someday make them for my daughter and that time is here!
I did include some candy in the surprise balls, but mostly non-candy treats (including my DIY Halloween chalk), so these are an adorable candy alternative for Halloween.
I went with non-traditional colors, because it is me and pink was necessary. These little pumpkins are ready to be unraveled and are filled with surprises for your littles! (Kalia & Colette unraveled as soon as I was done shooting)
Crepe Paper Rolls in variety of colors
Candy, Small Toys, etc for filling
Double Sided tape
Cut out your pumpkin faces using crepe or tissue paper (tissue paper is all I had). Take double sided tape and tape the pumpkin face shapes to your pumpkin.
Using green (or another color if you like) crepe paper, cut a small piece off and use it to create a pumpkin stem.
Tape pumpkin stem to pumpkin surprise ball.
Happy Halloween!! Hope you enjoyed this year's Halloween crafts- I only do two normally and I went a little crazy this year, I think it is because my oldest is 4 and super into it!
