Happy Witches Halloween 3 Day Blog Hop

 DAY 1 of 3
If you just came from Zentita's blog, then you are right where you are supposed to be. If you have happened upon my site, then great, but I am the last one on this hop and you have missed so much, so please start at the beginning on Angela's blog and make your way back to me.   So, Time to start thinking about Halloween. It is one of my favorite holidays, because it is in my favorite season of fall. I love the warm colors, all of the small kids who come trick or treating with their special cute costumes on.  Some of them are too scared to come to the front door because my husband does a good job of decorating the outside and making it a bit too scary for the little ones. I miss not being able to eat candy anymore, but then I guess that's good, since it doesn't add weight to me either.

This is a 3 day hop and we had a choice of putting up one project for all 3 days or 1 for each day. I have chosen to post 1 project for each day, so make sure to come back and see the other 2 projects.

For my first day I am posting a pumpkin pail. I made 30 of these for my daughter's class. She is a teacher and I like to make her class something for each holiday. I added a pencil to each bucket, along with candy.  It is made with Sizzix die cut out 3 times and taped together. A circle was attached at the bottom of the pail.  I attached a green handle, circles for the eyes, a triangle for a nose, and two photo corners for the mouth. I added shredded paper on the inside to give it a scarecrow look.

 This is the Sizzix pillow die. You need to cut 3.  This is the large circle die. You need to cut 2.

Tape all 3 pillows together. Cut off the top perforated edges

Cut out 2 large circles from the circle die.  Put tape on the inside and outside edges of the flaps on the bottom of the pail.

Put one circle on the inside of the pail and one on the outside and squish them together.   Use ink to distress all of the creased edges of the pail. Add the handles with brads. Add the faces.

I am last on the hop, but make sure you start over again tomorrow to see a new project again.
