Spooky Spider Treats

October! Can't believe it's here. The year is going by entirely too fast. But, on the plus side, October means plenty of excuses for Halloween stamp projects (of course, I got headstart last month with the Boo Banner).

No better way to get the trick-or-treat season started than with a Spooky Spider candy jar. This was so fast & easy to make -- the perfect project for my time-crunched schedule.

The ingredients:

  • Spooky Spider Décor Elements (small)
  • Eat, Drink & Be Scary stamp set
  • Shimmery White, Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango cardstock
  • Tag Punches (small & regular)
  • Tangerine Tango 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon and a bit of black hemp twine

But, of course, you can't have a candy jar and leave it empty ...

A bit of a close-up on the tag, embossed with black embossing powder ...

and the Spooky Spider striking a pose in front of Halloween colored M&Ms ...

Putting the vinyl wall decal on the glass jar took about 5 - 10 minutes (and that was moving slowly as it was my first time using the décor elements). The tag was another 5 minutes or so (quick & easy thanks to the tag punches).

If you want to make your own jar, Stampin' Up! is offering the Spooky Spider décor elements in 3 sizes (and, you can order online thru my site, too!)

I'm taking this jar into work to provide a lil' Halloween spirit (and, so I don't eat all the M&Ms solo)
