Whenever I’m hosting a party, it’s really important to me that I figure out ways to bring in what is seasonally appropriate. Whether it’s sprigs of holly for the Christmas holidays or pumpkins for a Fall celebration, incorporating moments of authenticity in a new way is just really cool. Which is why I love these trick or treat leaves – with fun little games written on the back based on tricks or treats.

Instructions for Trick or Treat Leaves:

Step 1: Spray paint your leaves black on both sides, and let dry.

Step 2: Cut 50 4-inch lengths of peach ribbon, and tie one end of each to a single ribbon.

Step 3: Hang that ribbon on your wall with tacks and spread out the hanging ribbons.

Step 4: Tie the leaves to each ribbon.

Step 5: Use your Posca marker to write “trick” on half the leaves and “treat” on the other half. On the backside, write out the tricks and treats for your guests.
