Projects from Halloween past - #1

So, I was clearing out some files and organizing past projects and stumbled onto several things I've done in the past.  Truth be told, I'm kind of done with Halloween/Fall crafts for this year.  Bring on Christmas right?  Ya, I know, come December 18th I'll be wishing for Valentine's Day, it's just how I am.  However, since Halloween is still to come I thought I'd share some past projects with you.  Plus this one can double as Christmas too - why not kill two birds with one stone, right?  Can you just imagine a holiday decoration that you can put out in September and not have to pack up until January?  Sweet, right?  (Boy am I lazy!)


So I started with this lovely piece of craft wood.  It's made by Kaiser Craft and they make all kinds of fun scrapbooking and home decor related items that you can add your personal touch too.  I'm a big fan and have used several of their albums too (remember this post?) - And for the record, I don't work for them, I just like them.  This shape is actually a Christmas tree but when I first saw it I immediately thought "Candy Corn" and so I made this....


Then I realized the whole back side was still a blank canvas.  So I flipped it over and then I made this...

Cool, right? It's a double purpose craft.  You hang it up for Halloween and then just flip it over for Christmas.  Too bad it's not three sided, I could have done something for Thanksgiving too.


You don't have to have the Kaiser Craft product to make this.  It could very easily be recreated by just using chipboard that you cut to size and then cover.

Hmmm, what else do I have hiding in my files?
Enjoy!
