I love the idea of turning dollar store items into cool and useful Halloween decor.
A good example of this is plastic vampire teeth. I have had a package of these things hanging around for ages and now i know exactly what to do with them.
(TIP: put a dab of hot glue in the corners before you paint them to help them stay upright)
#1. You can use them as name holders for a sit down meal…(spray paint them with metallic paint to get this silver/pewter effect)
#2. Use them as napkin rings …
#3. Make tiny signs for the buffet to let your guests know what they are eating (or who made what)…
#4. Carve Vampire Mini Pumpkins…These cute little guys would look good with all sorts of coloured teeth…OR
here’s a new idea…put a glow stick or bracelet inside before you put the white teeth in to make them *GLOW*
#5. And finally…Looks great as a drink garnish…(drizzle strawberry sundae syrup inside and around the rim and dust with red sugar to make the vampire blood effect)
