"Blood Stained" Halloween Party Invitations
Materials and Tools
printable cardstock invitations and envelopes
decorative hole punch
red food coloring
1. Using printable cardstock, print out your invitations with your party information. A gothic font style fits the theme especially well. Once the invitations are printed, use a decorative hole-punch to make an ornate design in the four corners of the invitation.
2. In a small bowl of water, add red food coloring and mix well. Use enough food coloring to get a mixture that’s blood red.
3. Using an eye dropper, make a few red water droplets randomly on the invitation. Holding the dropper up high will help create a splattered effect. Allow the invitations to dry thoroughly before continuing.
Note: Avoid stacking the invitations on top of each other as they may tend to stick together.
4. For an extra scary touch, once the invitations have dried and are in their addressed envelopes, seal the flap with a few drops of melted blood red candle wax.
Your macabre party invitations are likely to be a particular hit among fans of the vampire craze, which gets an added boost at Halloween.
