Halloween Treats and Cool Colors

m&ms halloween colors HalloweenBottles

Just a quick note on how well the halloween M&Ms match Stampin' Up! colors. (Lovely Lilac, Kiwi Kiss, Only Orange and Basic Black). I've been saving these wine bottles for ever and didn't really know what I was going to do with them. They make lovely candy-holder-decorations.

I've just taken crimped black paper and lightly rubbed a silver ink pad over it to give it a metallic-grungy look. Layered on colored card stock, ribbon and super long twist ties (from toy packaging - again one of those things that looked like something could be done with, so saved...). Little medallions were made with the Stampin' Up! "Batty for you" set and dangle from a loop made with the twist tie. Topped with cork stoppers from the craft store and voila! Very cute Halloween themed decoration.

What a great treat to make for a halloween nut you know! The trick will be not eating all of the candy yourself.

More halloween themed crafts in the works...

Funny how you were able to match the colours... I went to the mall this weekend and walked into Hannah Anderson and all I could see were the new SU! colours like Pacific Point, Baja Breeze and Tangerine Tango!
