On Monday, I shared my ideal Halloween dinner party menu, filled with all types of dishes that are slightly spooky without being overly hokey. Today I came up with a concept for a unique invitation for that dinner party.I love Evites, but there is something special and exciting about getting an invitation in the mail. Lately, I have been especially obsessed with 3-dimensional invitations, as it is EXTRA fun to get an invitation that comes in a box!
I created this cauldron invite with about $6 of supplies that I got a Target. It can really be used for any type of Halloween party. I’m sure even kids would delight in receiving a tiny cauldron full of candy corn in the mail!
Here is what I spent:
Bag of 6 mini cauldrons … $1
Bag of toy mice … $3
Bag of candy corn … $2.50
I had the ribbon and the tissue paper already.
Here is a link for a PDF version the invite, if you’d like to print it for your own party:
I printed the invite on food-grade tissue paper, which is about the thickness of parchment paper. I bought it at a restaurant supply store years ago and I still haven’t finished the huge pack. I think parchment paper would also work, you just want to print on the non-shiny side.
Stuff the invite into each cauldron.
I put a small handful of candy and one mouse toy into each cauldron. Be sure to not over-stuff or the tissue will rip when they try to take it out!
Tie the tissue closed with a small ribbon. I think it would be totally cute to have ribbon printed with “trick or treat,” but I got all my supplies for this at Target. If I had planned better, I would have also went to Joann’s for printed ribbon. I’m sure they also have some at Michaels.
If you stuffed it properly, the bag should easily come out!
When your guests open it, it should look like this!
I hope you enjoyed this DIY Halloween invitation! Be sure to click the link above and print your own if you’d like to use my graphics. I left all the party information blank so you can fill it in with your own details.
What are your plans for Halloween?
