Hi friends, it's October which means Halloween is coming. I love all things spooky and scary....orange and black......frightful and delightful. Pumpkins and gourds, witches and bats, black cats and ghosts.....it's all so fun! Without further delay, it's time to show you my 2010 Halloween Inspiration Station. I use this old wooden carrying tray with inserts to keep all my Halloween goodies tucked inside. By keeping themed supplies all in once place, you get a good idea as to what supplies you actually have on hand. It's fun to go shopping in your own boxes and bins. Plus, it's very inspiring to see all the goodies grouped together. You can pick and choose from all the trinkets and baubles and papers. Of course I don't use each and every item that I tuck into my Inspiration Stations.....I just use what inspires me at the moment and the rest goes back into my stash when the holiday is over. Fun stuff!Small and Medium Manila Parcel Tags, Medium Orange Parcel Tags and Large Metal Rim Tags from my Etsy shop.
Orange Soda Carnival Ticket under the ghost....and stitch up the sides with dark thread to keep it in place.
Brown Paper Sacks that I will fill with candy bars or homemade treats. I've got a few friends that I'm sure would love some fun Halloween mail!
Kraft Silk Ribbon to tie the tags around the sacks. As you can see in the background below, border stickers make for some quick and easy accent pieces....I used snippets on my tags and across the sack fronts. Such cute little goody bags....with a vintage flair.
Hope you enjoy! Please feel free to share what your plans are this Halloween. Jordan's birthday party is finally is this weekend and we're making caramel apples, mummy looking pigs in a blanket and witches fingers....I haven't gotten much further than that. I think I'll get out my Halloween decorations so it will look festive when her little friends come over!
