Candy Corn peat pot buckets...

 
 
 














My turn to share a tutorial over at RRR.   I started with some little peat pots and painted them up in pumpkin orange.  I used my crop-a-dile (remember those?) to make holes on either side and used some faux canvas ribbon in black for the handles.  I than added some homemade crepe papers to the bottom and top of each bucket.  My next step was to make some bows using plaid ribbon in black and added then to the side.  From here start having fun layering your diecuts and images and add dimension with some foam adhesive.   Other than that I just had to add a bit more ribbon nestled inside the gingham.  I added orange seam binding and Halloween bakers twine along with a hand stamped Maya road tag and jingle bell to finish them off.  Now they are ready for some candy corn or other sweet delight for this coming Halloween!  Enjoy, cherry

Cherry, haven't been to your page in a long time. Sometimes, I just do not have time to browse the net - for weeks at a time. Today, I saw your cute buckets and I just had to leave a comment. They are so darling, they put a smile on my face. If I have time, I will try to make a few for Bunco friends. I love Halloween (it brings out the kid in me)and I want to thank you for the inspiration.

These are darling! I was thinking of you the other day when I was in Bi-Mart and wondering how things are going.

I quit my job and am back to blogging and taking care of us.

Hugs,
