Here is a desk top decoration that will get you in the spirit of Halloween. They are quick and easy to make and do not require a lot of supplies. These would make unique Halloween party favors. I used some pumpkin straws but regular colored straws work nicely. The kids would enjoy making these for their friends.
Step 1: Supplies
- Plastic straws
- Magnet strip
- Halloween stickers
- Black paper
- Empty Altoids container
- Finger LED lights
Step 2: Getting Started
- Trace the lid of the Altoids can on the black paper.
- Cut out the shape.
- Tape the shape to the lid of the can.
- Decorate the top with several stickers.
Step 3: The Magnet
- Cut a small piece of the magnet to tape to the LED light.
- Tape the magnet piece to the LED light as shown.
Please note: You want to tape it to the flat edge where there is no switch.
Step 4: The Straws
- Mark the length of the Altoids can on the straws.
- Cut them slightly shorter than your mark.
Step 5: Attaching the Straws to the LED Lights
- Test the lights to make sure they work.
- Tape the straws to the LED lights as shown.
- You may make them shorter if you like.
- Turn them on and stick them to the can.
Step 6: Placing the Lights in the Altoids Can
- The straws go into the Altoids can.
- The LED lights are stuck to the top of the Altoids can for storing when not in use.
Step 7: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts
Led lights are so great! They seem to last forever. I love to use them for a lot of my crafts. These turned out so nice. I like quick and easy projects like these. It makes it fun and is easy enough to do with the kids.
