Trick or Treat, You're So Sweet!

For Dream Street this month, our assignment was to work with the Superstition line by Tracy Whitney. I adore Halloween and the excitement of it all, so I had fun coming up with an altered project with this line! I decided to make a lollipop arrangement...
I found a wooden box from the craft store, covered it in paper and topped the edge with some of the Superstition chipboard. Then added a "trick or treat" rub on to the edge. To help all the goodies stand up, I put a good size piece of floral foam in the bottom that you would find in the floral department of the craft store. I covered the top with webbing to hide the foam and then just popped up the chipboard pieces with bamboo skewers attached the back of the pieces. They easily poke down into the foam!
To create the little lollipop creatures:
1. Spider - Cut a circle from the patterned paper about 2 1/2 inches around. Distress edges. Punch 2 small circles in the lower body of the spider to slide lollipop through. Add chipboard photo corners for legs with glue dots adhered to the back of the body. Lastly, punch hole in the chipboard tag and tie it onto the lollipop with a bit of twine.
2. Ghost - Cut a ghost shape from patterned paper. Punch 2 small circles from black paper for the eyes. Punch 2 small holes near bottom of ghost to insert the lollipop stick. Cut "beware" strip from patterned paper and attach to bottom of ghost. Add chipboard piece to ghost.
You can just poke these little guys into the foam and they are a cute addition. Or you can make the lollipop creatures just how they are to hand out to the children at school! Thanks for visiting today!

How adorable!! This is really cute and crafty!!!

I just wanted to make a comment about your post on my blog.. You are right about things meaning to be and if not something else is there. It is very true Danielle, thank you for reminding me of that!

I also want you to know that I am praying for your changes with your move. I pray that God clearly show you which door to walk through and shut the doors that are supposed to be shut. And of course, for an easy move without stress or worry too!!!

I am going to take your advice, and not stress about my test if you'll not stress too much about possibly moving, deal?! :)

Have a great rest of the week!
