Halloween Treat Holders!

It's almost time for Trick or Treaters!

So I have made some cute treat holders using the NEW Twist and Style tool from Eileen Hull. I used a few of Eileen's die made by Sizzix and I was off getting my Halloween treat holders made.

First photo is the finished holder using the Twist & Style tool and can you guess what Eileen Hull die? It is the canister die! Just didn't use the cover! Easy fun!

To make this one you will need:

Canister Die
Twist & Style tool
Mat board
DecoArt Media Modeling paste 
Ephemera-Tim Holtz
Distress Ink
Also shown is garland made from Eileen Hull Garland die

Cut Mat Board out using Eileen Hull Canister die
Adhere together using adhesive of your choice
Paint Canister 
I distress inked just a bit
I used a stencil and DecoArt Media Modeling paste mixed with black paint and stenciled pattern onto canister and let dry.
Using the Twist & Style tool I twisted some wire together
Punched holes on two opposite sides of Canister and put wire through holes and curled
Decorate your canister to your liking!

Next I have a Hot Air Balloon using the Twist & Style tool and Eileen Hull Cubes die die.

 For this one you will need:

Extra Large Die Box Cubes-3D
Mat Board
Twist & Style tool
Light Bulb
DecoArt Black Mister
Paper of choice-I used Tim Holtz

Gather all materials

Spray light bulb and large box using Deco Art Black Mister

It will take a couple coats on the light bulb

Punch holes in each corer of the largest block
Twist you wire and insert into holes
Twist wire into place
At neck of bulb I tied some netting to hold in place and then brought wire up and around bulb.
Twist wires together at top.
Embellish as you wish and fill with candy or a witch!

These are so easy and fun you could have the boxes made and have a decorating party. Put a bunch of embellishments out on the table with adhesive and what a fun night to be had by all!

What will you be putting in your Treat holders?

Make sure you check out Eileen's Blog to see what the rest of the DT has made!

Live, Love and Art!
