Decorate To Celebrate Ch#36 -- Halloween!! Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails... :)


It's time again to decorate your celebrations with another Halloween Challenge at Decorate To Celebrate!!
For Challenge #36, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a HALLOWEEN PARTY!!  Let's celebrate EVERYTHING WONDERFUL ABOUT SPOOKY SPIDERS AND SLIMY SLUGS with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more!!  :)

I decided to make a pantry full of soups and stews fit for a ghoulish get-together!!  These fun, up-cycled cans will make perfect favors filled with candy corn and double as delightful decor!!  Each can was cleaned and had the label removed before The-Love-Of-My-Life worked his magic on giving each can a rusty finish...  I then decoupaged a pre-made label onto each can and added a muslin covering with a length of homespun fabric ribbon.
My tags were created by stamping each sentiment on a small piece of muslin that I then trimmed into a tag shape.  I found so many wonderful matching sentiments on my K Andrew Designs "Fall-O-Ween" Stamp Art Set...  "eeek!" for the Spider Fangs, "Best Witches" for the Witch's Stew, and "Batty for you" for the Bat Spleen!!  Oh, aren't they just so fun???  :)
To give the tags a bit of stability, I attached a cardstock tag to the back of the fabric tag (I used my CTMH background stamp for these little tags -- You may recall how much fun I'm having making these tags -- I'm adding them to everything!!).  I also added a sprig of orange berries to each can to make them extra festive...
Don't you think my party guests will enjoy these fun little favors???  I think they'll find them delectable!!  I wonder what other fun yummies I can add to these treats...  Hmmm...  Stay tuned to see!!  :)

Okay!!  Now it's YOUR turn!!  When you link up your project HERE before 11:59pm (EST) on Tuesday, October 30th, you will be eligible for YOUR CHANCE to WIN one of Rhonda's AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL mini albums (remember that your project needs to be a decoration or party supply to be eligible)!! :) 

I would like to enter my cans in the following challenges:
     1.  Anything But A Card Ch#4: Fall or Halloween Colors
     2.  Frilly and Funkie: Anything but a card with a TWIST
     3.  Inky Impressions Ch#81: Anything but a card
     4.  Mark's Finest Papers: FOSTV Ch#42: Anything but a card

Until next time,
