I’m a total sugar junkie. My dentists (yes plural! I’ve seen a lot of dentists 🙈) would all agree too. So since I couldn’t wait until Halloween to sink my teeth into something sweet, I made rice krispie treats. Halloween-style of course.
After spreading the gooey rice krispie and marshmallow mixture onto a baking sheet, I added and pressed in Halloween sprinkles. Then, made rice krispie cutouts with my Halloween-themed cookie cutters. Annnnd in case you couldn’t tell I was excited about Halloween, I added some festive toppers!
I thought to myself…hmm, most of the treat toppers we see are upright ones. (You know, like the ones in cupcakes at birthday parties). But why stop there?? Let’s think outside of the box and do something fun…like horizontal toppers! *insert mind-blown meme*
I always like a good crafting challenge so I came up with a couple fun toppers, three of which uses designs from the Silhouette Design Store!
The pumpkin faces are by Hero Arts (Design ID#67247). With my Silhouette CAMEO machine, I cut out ovals out of a clear acetate sheet and the faces using black cardstock. Then, I used craft glue to stick the faces onto the ovals and hot glue gunned a trimmed toothpick to the back of the oval (behind a face piece to conceal the toothpick) to make it a topper.
The “boo!” speech bubble is Design ID#152644. A toothpick was glue to the back of the topper and inserted into the side of the rice krispie ghost cutout.
The other “boo” was my own design and the toothpick was placed behind the “b” so that it was hidden, giving the topper a floating look.
I think these horizontal toppers really add some visual pizzazz to the treats, which makes the eating more fun! 😊 Such a simple and playful way to dress up Halloween sweets!
