Delightful Challenges

Good Morning!  It's Thursday and that means another Delightful Challenge.  As I said, I have another Halloween project to share with you.  This week's challenge at Delightful Challenge is a color combo...

Black, Orange, Purple & Green

So here's what I created....

Here's my entire Halloween ensemble - I created a treat bag with cute topper and a luminaria to adorn an entrance way.

First, the treat bag....

I found these cups at the dollar store, so it was pretty simple to add a strip of the Spooktacular Digi paper around the cup to give it some pop and costume.  Add some sweet treats and place in a cello bag.  Then I topped it with an adorable bag topper.

My topper features Sitting Mummy, Spooktacular digi paper and spider webs from the Halloween House set.

Next I created this luminaria.  I did find a tutorial on Splitcoast - I didn't follow it exactly, but I think it turned out really adorable.  These would be great to line a walkway, just add a rock for weight and a flameless tealight.  It's wind proof!

I made my own bat svg and cut them out using SCAL and my Cricut.  So and then adhered with adhesive and pop dots.

This picture is a bit grainy, but it captured the luminaria all lit up pretty well.

I hope you like my project and that it inspires you to create something for your Halloween.  Even if you don't do Halloween, change the paper and adornments and you can create a luminaria to match your decor or to dress your Thanksgiving table.  I'm sure you'll see me do this again for Christmas.

Enjoy your day and be sure to join us at Delightful Challenges.
