Halloween is all about the candy (duh, just ask the 90 million Americans who plan on buying this year – and spending $2.6 billion). Why not get creative and try your hand at a new DIY delicacy?
Even though we’re the at-home teeth straightening experts, we won’t tell you to trade out the treats for an apple. Or – shudder – hand out toothbrushes to trick-or-treaters. With invisible aligners, you can eat all the treats your sweet tooth desires – just make sure to brush and floss before putting your invisible aligners back in.
We found the best teeth-inspired Halloween DIYs on Pinterest and put them to the test. These are perfect for a spooky soirée, pre-trick-or-treating fuel, party favors, and more.
Halloween breakfast is served. Pick up a box of your favorite donuts, pop in a set of vampire teeth, add some candy eyes, and you’re set. DIYs don’t get much easier than this.
Skip the basic bagged candy and craft these cute little bags of pumpkin teeth. All you’ll need is plastic bags, festive ribbon, candy corn, and labels to attach to each bag. These petrifying party bags are perfect for trick-or-treaters or Halloween parties.
Because you should probably eat something healthy, grab a few apples, some peanut butter, and mini marshmallows to creepify a classic snack. Slice your apples, spread some peanut butter on one side, and sandwich 5 or 6 mini marshmallows in between. The only chompers that’ll look better than these will be yours after you finish SmileDirectClub. Wink, wink.
Hand pies are always an instant hit. Choose your favorite recipe for apple or pumpkin hand pies, and use a jack-o’-lantern cookie cutter instead of a traditional circle. Cut out a frightful face and play with the teeth. One tooth, 10 teeth, round teeth, sharp teeth, you name it.
Don’t forget décor. Let’s be honest: Carving pumpkins is a lot of work (and a lot of mess). These mini vampire pumpkins are way faster, kid-friendlier, and Instagrammable. Pick up some mini pumpkins, a little carving knife, vampire teeth, and some colored pins for eyeballs. All you need to do is carve out an insert for the teeth, slip ’em in, and pin the eyes.
Leave the ghoulish grins to these DIYs. Your teeth shouldn’t be scaring anyone this Halloween. SmileDirectClub invisible aligners straighten most smiles in an average of 6 months.
