  1. Step 1

    Download and print rounds. Glue black paper to the backs for sturdiness, and cut out the rounds. For noisemakers, cut mouth slit with a utility knife.

  2. Step 2

    Snip stem off an orange balloon, and stick the cut end through the slit from the back. Attach round to wooden craft stick with craft glue. Blow through balloon opening for a supernatural sound. For place cards, fill in slit with a black marker.

  3. Step 3

    Write a guest's name in iridescent pen on the black border of each round, and set on dinner plates.
