Halloween Treat Boxes and more Pumpkins!

I spent the day in my studio...FINALLY! It is so unorganized in there that I didn't get much accomplished. It sure was better than watching Auburn get beat by Mississippi State 14-19 though! War Eagle?!?!

I bought these cute little four inch or so paper mache boxes and thought they would make cute treat boxes. I painted them for my neighbor's grandchildren for Halloween. I will fill them with tissue paper, candy and maybe some cash:

I cut the spiders out with my "Cricut" machine and attached them with pop dots.

I also painted a couple more pumpkins. My daughter Heidi has asked me to paint her some, so I thought she might like these:

Well not much else to report from chilly West Virginia. Think I will catch the rest of the Alabama game in hopes to catch a glimpse of my nephew, Carl Tyler, who is on their cheerleading team. ROLL TIDE, ROLL!

What a great idea. I think the boxes might be something I could actually do myself. Thanks for sharing them. I also think you did a great job on the pumpkins.
