Recycled Halloween Party Fun!
On the Spotted Canary website, they are having a contest on items using recycled things. Each of these items uses something I am recycling or using scrap paper or rescuing from a thrift store.
Up above is a coffee filter book. Now, if I had a coffee maker that used cone type filters, I would have used filters after they had filtered the coffee! These coffee filters are tough cookies, and you could easily rinse them out, allow them to dry and use them as pages in your book. For the cover, I used chipboard that I recycled, spray painted it black and then used a tab off of an aluminum drink can as extra support where I put my holes for my binder rings. the stickers are all Sticko and the Happy Halloween is from the Spooktacular line from K & Company. You are going to see lots of Spooktacular in this post.....I love that new line from K & Company!
Spooktacular! It looks like a big lollipop!
Halloween containers for that candy for the trick or treaters! If you want to do a trick or treat can for the trick or treaters to carry around, the paint cans like you buy at the DIY stores make great ones. I actually have one spray painted black and ready to decorate. Jackson is due on October 28th, so he just might need a trick or treat container! LOL! Won't that be Spooktacular?
On this can, I spray painted it black and then I cut borders using those great EK Success border punches! The glitter pumpkins I have around the can comes from 12 by 12 sheets from K & Company's Spooktacular line as does the decoration on the lid and can.
Spooktacular line and we have room for LOTS of candy! (If only I could have some!) I also used some scrap paper to make a sour cream container to put candy corn in....from the Spooktacular line....do you think you have that now? Spooktacular.....it really is!
