Are you planning a Frankenstein themed Halloween party this year? If not, you may want to give it some thought. It’s a great way to celebrate the holiday and pay homage to a classic movie monster all in one shot. If you do decide to throw a Frankenstein themed party, you may want to check out my Frankenstein themed party favor ideas. Here they are:
In my opinion, a set of Frankenstein bolts would make a great party favor. You could opt to make your own Frankenstein bolts out of suction cups and sculpting clay or purchase ready-made Frankenstein bolts from a costume shop. Party City usually sells sets of plastic Frankenstein bolts for less than $3. If you want to go with homemade bolts, you can expect to pay $5 for a tub of air-dry clay and $1 for a package of suction cups through most craft stores.
Frankenstein Monster Masks
Frankenstein Monster Masks would also make excellent party favors for kids. There are party supply companies that sell Frankenstein Monster Masks made out of foam for less than $2 each. One such company is U.S. Toy. Of course you could also opt to give the kids the supplies necessary to make their own monster masks. That way the party favor could also double as a party activity.
Temporary Frankenstein Stitches Tattoo
Frankenstein themed temporary tattoos would also make superb party favors. Temporary tattoo options include replicas of Frankenstein’s stitches and Frankenstein’s head. In most cases, Frankenstein themed tattoos are available for purchase through specialty shops and party supply retailers for less than $2 a pack.
When it comes to Frankenstein edibles, you can really get creative. For instance, you could invest in a Frankenstein cookie cutter or a Frankenstein candy mold and make your own treats. Based on my experience, there are several different types of Frankenstein cookie cutters and candy molds available. Some companies, like Karen’s Cookies, sell cookie cutters made in the shape of Frankenstein’s head. There are other companies, like Copper Gifts, that sell cookie cutters that will make an entire Frankenstein Monster as well as his bride.
If you don’t want to make Frankenstein cookies and candies, you could opt to make treats in the shape of body parts. After all, Frankenstein was made from assorted parts. If you do decide to go that route, Wilton makes a great fingers cookie mold that will help you get the job done. You could also purchase ready-made, body parts candy through candy wholesalers and party supply shops like Oriental Trading. Ready-made options include jelly filled oozing eyeballs, gummy brains and heart shaped lollipops. In most cases, a 50 piece case of body parts candy will tend to cost you $7.
