Fall Pumpkins & Halloween Trick or Treat Bags

Today I have one last post for the Fall and Halloween projects I made. 

The first is two different sized plastic pumpkins painted white.  I attached lots of swirls in different shapes and styles, then added a pretty flower in the center.  They looked great on my entry table through out the fall season.

The second is the Halloween Trick or Treat Bags I made for the neighborhood kids.

Here they are... enjoy...

Large 9" Pumpkin
Small 6" Pumpkin

Trick or Treat Bag

My Crafting Recipe for Pumpkins:

The Pumpkins were purchased from Michaels and painted white then varnished.  Stems were painted brown then varnished.  The pumpkins are two different sizes...9" wide and 6" wide.

The swirls were made by Kaiser Craft, Recollections, Prima and Zva Creative.  I purchased them from several different craft stores in my area.

The flowers are by Recollections from Michaels Craft Store.

My Crafting Recipe for Trick or Treat Bags:

Black Bazzill card stock paper punched along one side using Martha Stewart's Spiderweb punch.  The purple, green printed papers & cut out pumpkins are from a 12x12 paper pack by K&Company called Halloween Designer Paper.  The Words are cut from a 12x12 paper pack by Martha Stewart called Carnival.

The Cat Sticker is by Recollections.  I used many different types of stickers and all were from Recollections which I purchased from Michaels Craft Store.

The colored papers were punched using Nesting Scallops by Lifestyle Crafts and the purple paper shape is Labels Four by Spellbinders.

The bag is purchased from Michaels Craft Store and then filled with different candies from the grocery store.

Dot Pumpkins for Thanksgiving

Good Morning!  Today I have finally finished all 20 Dotted White Pumpkins that I will be placing at each Thanksgiving table place setting.  I have made one for each person coming including the grandchildren. 

It has taken me awhile to complete them, which is why I haven't posted anything lately.  Each pumpkin started out green (that's how I purchased them).  I then had to paint each one with 3 coats of white paint to cover the green.  The stems were painted first with black, which I didn't like, then with two coats of a dark brown (much better).  Then I traced on the letters which I had printed out on my computer, painted each dark brown, covered the pumpkin with different sized brown dots then the whole pumpkin was covered with a coat of varnish to make it shine.  I added a bit of Stickles Star Dust to the swirls on each letter and three little gems.  Tied some raffia and ribbon bows, added some leaves, feathers, buttons (for the boys) and flowers (for the girls) and they were finally finished.

So here is a sample of each type.  The one with the flower was made for my daughter and the one with the button is for her boyfriend. 

I really Love them!!!!  I think they are going to look great on our table at Thanksgiving and each person will be able to take theirs home too...

My Crafting Recipe:
From Michaels Craft Store – Small Green Plastic Pumpkins (painted white), Fall Colored Ribbon, White & Dark Brown Paint and Varnish.
From My Stash – Raffia, Fall Leaves, Feathers, String, Jewels & Button
Flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts
The Letters are a font called LD Garbo Script – Printed on paper, traced onto the pumpkin and painted with the Dark Brown Paint
Sparkle is Stickles Star Dust
