Fast and Easy Votive Halloween Giftie



Welcome to Zoulah's Bewitchen Kitchen!

Zoulah is cackling with delight as she brings you this fast and easy Halloween giftie!  It's a great little gift for friends, teachers, and co-workers.  One of my daughters gave these to her friends at Valentine's Day filled with Hershey kisses.

On a side note, Zoulah wants to wish Joni's mom, Nedra, a Happy Birthday today.  She has been gone for over 20 years now and we love her and miss her.  She was a huge inspiration to her daughters and sons in the kitchen.  She also inspired us to love to learn and to try new things. 

All you need are the following:

1. Glass votives
2. Cupcake liners
3.  Ribbon
4.  Candy or little gifties that shine

Zoulah's Notes:
Use a thin ribbon.  For candy, use candy with foil wrappers -- it looks pretty through the glass.  You could also put in a watch, a necklace, bracelet, or a charm.



Zoulah thanks you for stopping by Red Couch Recipes from the top of her witchie hat to the bottom of her witchie toes.

Hi Joni! Such a touching post today, wishing you smiles and happy memories! Love Z's votive gift idea, you're right, it would be great for all of the holidays:@)

Joni, What a nice tribute to your Mom. I'm sure she's smiling down on all of you and is so proud.

Great friend gift idea.

Jacqueline said...

Happy Birthday to Mom! She really was a good example of trying new things. She would be so proud of us that we tried blogging!!!

I made a witch shoe tonight, in purple of course with a little purple bling. That was so fun and so easy. I am going to use them as invitations to a dinner party on Friday!

The Edward and Bella came from on-line. We just googled twilight pumpkin patterns. One year we had one of Pres. Hinckley. I wish I had kept that one! The pumpkins from Orlando were the foam carved ones. I loved that gate.

Cute, cute little gifts that would be so easy to give. So are you giving the kid's teacher's the witches shoes?

What fun!

Did I ever tell you that my mom's nickname in high school was Joni, spelled like yours? (It was because her last name was Johnson, but everyone from her youth still calls her "Joni.")

I love that name.

=)
