Spooky Brew! Weekend Project

Here's a fun project that anyone in the family can make. Though a bit of supervision with the scissors and the little ones is always recommended!!!

I got these adorable pumpkin suckers at Michael's. Aren't they just the cutest??? I thought they would be cute in an arrangement of some sort. Maybe just as they are but no, I had to go one step further. Ok, more than one step!!! LOL

I took the suckers and added the layers of punched card stock on them. I had stamped the images at Sue's because I didn't have this set. I punched a full sheet and I'm still not out yet!!! It is such a cute set but I bought some other Halloween sets so I had to limit myself!!! This Stampin' Up! set is called "Batty for You." It's SO much fun to play with!!!!

After I got all the pieces punched out (the images with the 1-1/4" circle punch, the next layer with the 1-3/8" punch and the scallop circle punch) I taped them together. Then I used sticky dots to affix them to the suckers.

I did cut the sticks of the suckers, those things are around 12" long or even longer. I just know they are long!!

I found this adorable coffee cup at Michael's too. Isn't it cute??? I filled it with those glass marbles and stuck the suckers in. I didn't like what I saw and thought the top of the marbles could use something. SO I was going to put vanilla Tootsie Rolls on top because I was making this for a friend who LOVES those!! And then I thought why not try to just fill the cup with the Tootsie Rolls and no marbles. I dumped the marbles out and after picking up a hundred of them off the floor (chasing the cats away while doing that) I filled the cup with the candy and proceeded to add the suckers one by one. I did have to trim the bottoms of the sticks to get them to stick in the cup in various lengths.

I added some fun Halloween ribbon I had to the cup handle but it still needed something more. So I went back to my wall of ribbon and found some cute smaller ribbon and added a piece to each sucker. That was it!!! I liked it and I'm sure my friend Ann will like it too!!! Now I don't know if you can remove the card stock without ripping the packaging because these would be great for Thanksgiving too since they are only a pumpkin and not a jack-o-lantern!!!

This is a fun project for kids to play along with too!! A great teacher gift item as well!!!

I still have a few more Halloween items to post before the SPOOKY day!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
