Halloween Projects!



Spooky Block, Cardstock Pumpkin, Punch Spider


I don't normally do Halloween projects, but I have seen so many cute ones this year I couldn't resist! It all started with the new "Spooky" Decor Elements. It was shown at the SU! Convention on a big treat jar. I don't want that much candy sitting around and I wasn't sure where I'd store it the rest of the year, so mine is on a glass block. I put some snack size candy bars in it, but the wrappers were dark and the spider didn't show up very well. I'm thinking I might get some orange lights, but until then I just put some orange cardstock behind it. The spiders come in black or white and in 3 sizes. This is a small. They are available until October 31st.

The pumpkin is made from strips of cardstock. I put them in a stack and used the Crop-A-Dile to punch holes on both ends, then put a piece of ribbon thru the holes and tied knots on both ends. Very easy! I wish I would have made the ribbon longer so the pumpkin would be taller and more round. I added some stamped leaves that I cut out and tied a bow on top. See why I usually do knots?

The little spider is made from card stock scraps and punches: Scallop Circle for the body, Photo Corners for the legs, then 1/2" circle and 1/4" circle for the eyes, and 1/4" circle for the mouth. There's a York Peppermint Patty in the middle for the body. I'm having a hard time not eating him! I LOVE dark chocolate and mint!
 
 
Tomorrow I'll show you the Halloween Cards I made for a swap.
