Halloween stuff from over the years

Halloween is fast becoming one of my favorite holidays. As a kid we never really did anything for Halloween, maybe thats why I like it so much now. I love the colors, the costumes, the candy!! Here are a few things I have done over the years.

I made this wreath using cheap ribbon from the dollar store. I made the Happy Halloween sign and the ghosts and bat from Sculpey. That stuff is AWESOME!

The treat jack-o-lanterns are made from formula cans. I saved a TON of them and spray painted them orange. I used sharpie to color a big white label then cut out the faces for the pumpkins.  Since they are made from cardboard I could easily poke a hole in the dies and make a pipe cleaner handle. Tissue paper in the bucket and some treats and its a cute Halloween treat for the kids.

This year my local dollar store was going out of business so all their Halloween stuff was half off or less! It was amazing! So I made some treat trays and treat buckets for family.

Printed the labels for some treats and made some candy wrappers for large chocolate bars, also made some coloring books.

In 2007 we had a huge Halloween party. Here are some pictures of the decorations and food.

Notice all the treat buckets in the background?

Dips served in small pumpkins

Wood crate with added wooden pumpkin and leaves serves for Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving!

Wooden pumpkin painted many many years ago.

I know a lot of people are into the whole muted color thing, but I can never be one of them, for me color is more than just brown and teal. I need some VIBRANT in your face color, especially during holidays like Halloween!
