Learn Interesting Ways To Use Dry Ice To Decorate For Your Next Halloween Party

Making your next Halloween bash the talk of the town doesn’t have to be overly difficult to do. An inexpensive and easy-to-find tool to use in your Halloween decorating is dry ice. Dry ice creates the illusion of smoke billowing away from whatever item the dry ice is in to create a spooky look. The following guide will help you learn a few creative ways to use dry ice at your next Halloween party.

Wicked Witch Punch

Take a large punch bowl and line the bottom of the bowl with dry ice. In a smaller punch bowl that can fit inside of the large punch bowl, mix one packet of grape powdered drink mix with one packet of orange powdered drink mix. Add three cups of sugar, one liter of lemon lime soda and then fill the rest of the bowl with water. Mix the ingredients together and place the smaller bowl inside of the larger bowl. It should create a delicious black brew that everyone will enjoy drinking. Pour a little bit of water into the bottom of the larger bowl and fog should start to billow out from under the bowl.

Positively Putrid Pumpkins

Carve a pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern. Place a glow stick and a small bowl of dry ice inside of the cavity of the pumpkin. Place the pumpkin on a table or on your front stoop. Add a little bit of water to the bowl of dry ice and fog will start to pour out of the pumpkin. When the fog comes out of the pumpkin’s mouth, it will look as though he is vomiting.

Exciting Eroding Eyeballs

Create a lemon or coconut gelatin mix according to the directions on the box. Spray a mini muffin tin with a little bit of non-stick oil and then pour the gelatin into each of the small openings. Place the tin into the refrigerator for fifteen minutes so that it can set slightly. Take the muffin tin out of the refrigerator and use food coloring to dye each little gelatin mold to create the illusion of eyeballs. Place the tin back in the refrigerator for two hours. Remove the tin one more time and then pop out all of the eyeballs from the tin with a spoon. Place the eyeballs into a large clear jar and fill the jar with cranberry ginger ale. Add a few pieces of dry ice to the top of the jar to create the effect that the goulash dish is smoking.

These quick and easy decorating ideas will take your party to the next level of spooky. They are very affordable (from outlets such as Chilly Willy & Cool Carl’s Ice) decorations to do and will not impact the quality of the food or drink that you are serving.
