I’ll be super honest with you, I’m kind of a wimp. I don’t do scary well at all. I’m the twenty-five year old that still covers her eyes in movies and has to run and jump in bed after something creepy (I wish I was joking). Alas, it should come as no surprise that decorating for Halloween is not really my thing. I’m all about some pumpkins and lattes, but scary or gory I don’t  do. Dinner parties on the other hand, I got that covered!

These five-minute DIY scroll test tube invitations are indeed for those that are faint of heart but still want to celebrate. You can make them as creepy crawly as you’d like by adding little knick knacks (like spiders or fingers), or leave them simple with a scroll and plastic bone. It’s kind of mystery dinner meets Halloween, if you will.

Materials:

  • Martha Stewart plastic test tubes, c/o
  • Martha Stewart graphic decoupage paper, c/o
  • Dired moss
  • Cardstock
  • Tape
  • Twine

Write or print your invites onto card stock and layer the graphic gold decoupage paper beneath and seal them together with tape. Roll the invite up, and tape or wrap with twine, then insert it into the tube with a little knick knack like plastic bones from the Dollar Store.

    So clever!

  • These are awesome Ash! And the photos are gorgeous. I too don’t do scary well (totally am a cover-my-eyes, run-and-jump into bed girl too!), but these are just the right amount of spook!

  • What a seriously cute idea!! I would LOVE to receive one of these invites! I have this really weird obsession with test tubes and small glass bottles and now I get an excuse to work with them! :) I literally just stumbled upon your blog and love it – I’m a new follower! xo

    Really really cute! I’m using some beakers and test tubes this year with my Halloween decor as well. I bought I bunch for my son’s Science themed party this Summer hoping they could be used more then once. I love this with the moss, just ever so slightly creepy – perfection!

    Smart invitation! Maybe we can even insert a map to the party location just to make it feel like the deserted bottle message ;)
