MCT: Designer's Challenge

Hi, today we have a Designer's Challenge over on the My Creative Time blog based on the picture below. You can create a project using inspiration from the photo, the colors, or whatever inspires you from it.

So here is what I came up with.

I found this little bucket in the dollar section at Target. I wish I could have made a luminary but this will have to do. I first cut the pumpkin face from an svg in black card stock. I used Modge Podge to adhere it to the bucket. To create the eye balls, I used a larger circle from MCT: Picture Perfect and a smaller circle from MCT: Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves

I added a trim to the top of the bucket using MCT: Fun Stitched Edges and orange card stock. I added Recollection's Faux Jewels to the trim.

I cut out the super cute little ghost from MCT: Stitched Spooky Ghost Dies. I added a Peachy Keen Stamps: Cutie Pie face and chalked the cheeks. I added the ghost as well as a spider web from MCT: Wicked Fun Dies to a paper stray that also came from the Target dollar section.

Next, I stamped the "Happy Halloween" sentiment onto the tag from MCT: Teeny Tag Greeting Stamp Set. I then tied it to the straw using American Crafts Black and White twine.

I filled the bucket with black present paper and some yummy treats. I then stuck my decorated straw in the middle and now it is ready to be a spooktacular gift for Halloween!
