more Halloween fun

This past weekend Maura attended the Teen Halloween Party at our town library.  We made these Cauldron Cupcakes from Meg at MegaCrafty.  These taste as good as they look!!  Mine aren't as neat as hers, but everyone sure did like them.

We also made a Halloween "Tree".  I got the idea from martha stewart Living a few years ago.  First I spray painted some branches black, put them in a vase, then added some 'ornaments'.  This looks great on our kitchen counter!
 The bats, cat, and 3-D pumpkins were all cut on my Silhouette machine.  The Raven and Owl images I got from the Graphics Fairy, I made two copies of each, then glued them back to back with some cardstock and hanging ribbon in between.
The skeletons are from the dollar store.  I went there looking for mini skeletons and there they were!  Amazing.

And now I'm off to try to get some sewing done before this guy gets up:

  1. I love the Halloween Tree, we made a similar thing for our advent calendar last year. Might have to look for some new twigs tomorrow and have a go myself.
