I’ve been looking for Halloween gift ideas for tweens and teens because it seems like everything I find in the store is geared towards little kids. I still like to give the kids a small gift for Halloween even when they are past the age where they’re interested in stickers and little plastic toys. Using some craft supplies from Mod Podge, I created a fun Halloween gift. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links

I’ve been fascinated by decoden lately and have been wanting to try some simple decoden craft ideas. If you’re not familiar with decoden, it’s really the combination of two words – deco for decorated and den for which is short for denwa which means phone in Japanese. This cute craft craze started out as a way to decorate your cell phone case. It quickly became a fun way to decorate any small object whether that’s an Altoid tin, a trinket box or a compact mirror.

Decoden is the art of decorating with small trinkets, glitters, rhinestones, beads, etc. Basically, the more sparkly and over the top the better. Because I’m relatively new to decoden, my project is fairly simple. You can cover the entire surface of the item if you like or leave enough space to see the surface below.

This is what you need to get started on these Halloween gift ideas for tweens:

Materials

Directions

  • Insert a silver Mod Podge High Temp Mini Mod Melt into your glue gun. Let it warm up and very carefully fill the skull cavity on the Mod Mold with it. Allow to dry for 10 minutes and pop out. Color the bow pink or purple and the eyes black. Repeat for as many skulls as you want.

  • Mix the Mod Podge Collage Clay with a small amount of Folk Art Multi-Surface Neon Acrylic Paint in Purple. Stir until well mixed.
  • Using a mini putty knife, spread the Purple Collage Clay on the top of the Altoid tin like you are frosting a cupcake.

  • While the Collage Clay is still wet, apply the sequins and the skull to the top covering as much of the surface as you like.
  • Allow to dry completely & fill with something cute like lip balm and mini nail polish.

  1. What a cute craft for Halloween! I didn't realize Mod Podge made mold melts. I am so out of touch when it comes to being crafty!!
  2. I love this craft. I would've totally wanted something like this when I was around 13. I had no clue Mod Podge had so many different products out - thanks for sharing :)

    How creative and what a great way to make something personal and reflect one's personality.  I really love those cute molds.
  4. Definitely pinned to my crafts board. I never heard of giving Halloween gifts. My family wasn't too keen on the gift giving, but I'm a bit different.
