The One About the Halloween Broomsticks Loot

You cannot imagine how long I have waited to post "got crafty" on my Facebook wall on which this post is linked from!  As I have mentioned several blog posts ago, life got in the way of crafting.  Right now I'm tickled pink that I'm starting to find my crafty groove back!

My craft comeback post begins with the Halloween Trick-Or-Treat that took place just last Saturday in our village.  Children from the village dressed up in their Halloween garb and went trick-or-treating from one house to another.  Here are Hon-some's niece and nephews:


Off they go!

Trick-or-treaters come by...

Meanwhile, I got busy making loot bags for Hon-some's niece and nephews.  Got the idea from Mareng Martha.  I made broomsticks loot bags!

I placed candies and treats in a plastic bag and put the whole thing in a paper bag.

Then I got another paper bag and cut all four sides into strips.  I left the base intact and placed the candy-filled paper bag on it.


Another angle


I placed a branch inside the paper bag then gathered up all the strips.  I tied all the strips together using a black ribbon.

Then I cut out pumpkin-shaped tags from orange tagboard.

Not bad, huh?  It was Hon-some's first time to actually see me crafting (he just used to see all the finished crafts) and he was wowed!  Hahaha!  Happy halloween!!!
