Ghoulish Goodies

My most favorite night is almost upon us .. Halloween !!  I am hoping that we get lots of trick or treaters this year .. with being in a new house for this holiday season it is hard to tell so keeping my fingers crossed .
I also have a little haunting adventure coming up on my blog on Saturday (October 22) but more about that in a bit.

I wanted to share a couple treat boxes I made a couple years ago .. so easy and fun to create. You can add as much or as little embellishment as you like .  I had ordered these particular cardboard boxes from Uline .. I checked recently to see if they still have them and they are not on their website.  However you could use any type of cardboard box so long as it takes well to paints and things of that nature.  I painted the boxes with regular acrylics that I had laying around my studio and then used alphabet stamps to do the text .  The Raven is painted on from a stencil and then I just brushed some strokes of paint around him .  The spooky box was sprayed with some  gold glitter mist and I used a circle stamp all around the box for added fun .

I found the raffia bits at Michael's .. they have it in black and white and asst halloween colors . Then I stuck some treats in them and they are ready to be enjoyed !

You could even do these for the Christmas or Hanukkah holiday season !  Cute stocking stuffers , handmade edible goodies and so on !  Change up the raffia colors to suit the holiday!

I also want to share a sneak peak of a fun Christmas goodie that I will be creating in the next couple weeks which I will also be puttin up on my etsy shop.  I have quite a few ideas to incorporate into this fun project but since Christmas is sneaking up on us I will be starting with that one :)

 And ... on Saturday .. I will have some hauntingly good fun since I am participating in A Fanciful Twist's Halloween Party !!!   If you would like to join in too all you need to do is check out Vanessa's post with all the details .  It is sure to be lots of fun so hope to see you there and be sure to come here to see what I have brewed up !


  1. Cute! I love the raven. I'm so lazy about wrapping things like stocking stuffers. Such a good idea!
