Move over “You’ve been BOO’ed,” there’s a new Halloween tradition in town.. You’ve Been BOO’zed!
If you have played the Boo Game during Halloween with your neighbors you know what I am talking about, for those of you that are unfamiliar, it’s a fun game to play at Halloween. You grab a Halloween bucket or bag, stuff it full of treats and goodies, leave it on your neighbors door step, ring the doorbell and run.
It’s kind of like ding dong ditch but with candy and everyone is happy you rang.
BOO’zing is like the grown-up version of BOO’ing your neighbors.
I don’t know about you but I’m pretty sure most of my friends would rather get BOO’zed than BOO’ed.
Here’s how to do it.
This “You’ve Been Boo’zed” gift works just like the traditional BOO gifts you’ve seen in the past, except they involve ALCOHOL. Yesssss.
Take your neighbors’ drink of choice, place it in a festive bag, put it on their doorstep, ring the doorbell and run!
You can choose any type of spirit to include in your gift- I used Muddy Boot Wine because it’s a perfect potion, but if your witches perfect stronger libations wrap up a bottle of their favorite booze and include a fun drink recipe card! I suggest using my Ponche de las Brujas Recipe and a bottle of Tequila!
To make your BOO’zing gift extra chic I have a fun DIY way to really dress your booze up with a Witches Broom gift wrap.
It’s easy, totally on the cheap and sure to deliver shrieks of delight from your friends. This is also a great way to wrap up a Halloween Party Hostess Gift.
What You Need:
- 3 brown paper bags (you can get a huge pack of them at the dollar store)
- a 1 1/2- 2 foot long stick – the creepier looking the better
- a rubber band
- booze of your choice
- my free“You’ve Been BOO’zed” printable
STEP ONE: To craft the broom’s bristles cut your first paper bag in 1/2 strips from the top of the bag all the way to where the bag sits flat on the table.
STEP TWO: Open your second paper bag and place your booze of choice inside it and crumble it up like the do at the liquor store if you were “brown baggin’ it”, then place the bag of booze on top of the flat part of the bag you cut into strips.
STEP THREE: Now cut your third paper bag about three inches from the bottom so that it makes a mini bag.
STEP FOUR: Take the mini bag and place it like a hat on top of the booze bottle and crumble into place while tucking it’s edges inside the other bag.
STEP FIVE: Place the stick down inside the middle of the bag behind the bottle. Then gather the loose strips of your first bag and bring them up and around the sides of the uncut bag covering the bottle and stick. Secure the strips with a rubber band. (I suggest looping the rubber band twice around the stick just above the bottle before you gather the strips to make it easier to slide down).
STEP SIX: Wrap twine around the rubber band area to cover it up then tie your “You’ve Been BOO’zed” printable to the broom handle with string. I used black and white bakers string because it looked extra witchy.
Now wait til the sun goes down, park your witches broom on a neighbors doorstep, ring the doorbell and run! WARNING: You will hear shrieks of delight within a few minutes.
