Halloween Treats & Charms

Happy October!!!
As soon as the leaves start changing, my creativity swings into full holiday gear. Just love this time of year! Here are a few special projects I plan on creating more of this Halloween season.

These charms, when attached to a ballchain, will make a great seasonal necklace! However, this year, I’m planning on giving some of these to friends to hang from their car’s rearview mirror…a bit of mobile decor! 🙂

And they are so quick and easy, maybe you’ll be inspired to make one for your car too!

Supplies:

Ranger Inkssentials Memory Frame

Ranger Inkssentials Memory Glass

Classic Halloween Seals

Vintage Ephemera

Garment Pins

Vintage Jingle Bells

Precision Scissors

Hinge Clips

STEP 1: Adhere vintage seal to vintage paper.  Using glass as a guide, position glass over image, and trim around the glass edge with scissors.

STEP 2: Sandwich image between glass and insert into frame. Clip frame together.

STEP 3: Thread a garment pin through a vintage jingle bell and attach onto hinge clip. Tie ribbon to hinge clip.

STEP 4: Attach hinge clip to top of memory frame.

These treat containers will be perfect party favors for our annual pumpkin carving party! Fortunately, these are also super easy to make.

Supplies:

Black Twirly Twine

Garment Pin

Peat pot

Black crepe

Stapler

Black ribbon

Classic Halloween Seals

Vintage ephemera

Black shimmer alphas

Platinum Stickles

Orange Fringe

Halloween Cardstock stickers

Glue gun

2 inch circle punch

STEP 1: With the glue gun, run a strip of glue along one side of peat pot. Quickly crimp and press crepe strip into glue (does not need to be even folds. The more uneven the better actually). Repeat for the additional sides.  For decorative purposes and to secure folds, add staples. Add black ribbon bow around center of pot.

STEP 2: To create tag, adhere halloween seal to vintage book paper and punch out circle. Add “BOO” title. Punch another circle from cardstock and adhere to the book paper circle. Trim rim with stickles. Let dry, then punch hole to top of tag. Attach garment pin and attach to treat bag with Black Twirly Twine.

This treat container was made with orange fringe. Fold the fringe strip in half and adhere to peat pot as above. Staple to keep in folded position and add a black bow.
