Halloween ideas -- a baker's dozen

There are so many great ideas on the internet. Today I am posting a baker's dozen (the best Halloween number, after all) of the cutest, easy to do Halloween decorating, party and treat ideas I could find and let you know where to find them.

Above S'mores. Perfect for this time of year. Find out how to make them at

I don't usually go for scary things, even for Halloween, but these witchy cookies are great. Go to to see how to make them. I don't think they will frighten anyone.

I love pipe cleaners. Add pumpkins and they make a really great combination. This craft is featured on

I couldn't find anyone to give credit for this one. I also couldn't find the recipe but the idea is just too cute -- and easy. It looks like Vienna fingers dipped in white chocolate with tiny chocolate chip eyes. Use any "ghost-shaped" cookie or cracker of your choice.

This is one of my favorites and it could be used any time of the year. It is just apple slices, peanut butter and miniature marshmallows. You could "glue" this together using Sun butter or almond butter if peanut butter is a problem. It's also gluten-free! This is from

I have already used this idea from for a pumpkin that is now on my front doorstep. Easy, easy, easy. I love it. I bought a bag of "teeth" from Michael's and the decoration is almost instant.

We made these last year from black and white construction paper and black acrylic paint. Still a good idea -- a good one from

Yet another idea. I wanted to try this last year but I couldn't find the jugs. We don't usually drink dairy around our house but I could use water jugs or bottles. Candles can be a fire hazard but these are lighted with strings of lights tucked into a hole in the back. Great way to light the way for little goblins.

If you are always wanting something healthy to cancel out some of those Halloween treats, here is the best idea ever! The idea comes from

Another idea from Do I need to say more. So easy and perfect.

These ghostly treats are from I love truffles, especially cute ones.

This recipe is kind of like the "trash" recipes. It calls for broken Oreos, M&Ms, candy corn and it looks like pretzels and peanuts all mixed up with melted white chocolate. I don't think dark chocolate would look as pretty. Check it out on

This is quite a nice decoration. Pretty and after you are finished with the candles you could eat the candy corn, if it doesn't get too melty. I love this idea and candy corn is prettier than it is good for you so you could use that excess candy corn and not be tempted by it later. I wanted to try this last year but I forgot all about it. If you want to visit the website, go to

Hope you enjoyed the ideas. It was like a treasure hunt for me.
