Halloween Bat Treat Bags

I love this time of year. Halloween is my favorite holiday
by far. Each year I like to conjure up a treat bag
to pass out to my favorite goblins and gules.
Whisker Graphics Bitty Bags are always on my go to supply list.
The colors are lovely and the product is super easy to work with.

I sketched that little bat. Pulled out some bitty bags and went to
work making that little guy a pair of treat filled wings.

For the size bat I chose to work with Middy Bitty Bags fit the bill.
Fold the bag accordion style, like a fan.

Fill the "bottom" half of the bag with some candies. I choose
a fun size bag of M&M candies. Their size and the fun size amount
fit perfectly. Crimp the center of the bag, as neatly as possible with
your fingers. Then tie the bag in half with a bit of twine.

Fill the other half of the bag with some more candies,....
another fun size bag of M&M candies.

Flod over the open edge and secure with a bit of glue.

Then cut out the bat and hot glue to the center of the bag.

Cute and easy. Below is a printable of the bat,
just drag and drop it to your desk top and
print away.

Fall Catcher Modern Natural Found Object Wreath

My youngest son loves to collect little bits
of nature. Every day he presents me with the
little gifts he finds rocks, leaves, pinecones,
acorns and sticks. Lots and lots of sticks.

So, he was the inspiration for what I'm calling
a Fall Catcher. With the stick of the day, some
leaves from my neighbors maple and lovely
Whisker Graphics products, we whipped up
this little "modern natural found object" wreath.

First we began by wrapping the stick with a
little washi tape. Then we tied some divine twine
to the stick for hanging our little treasures on.

Next I got started on making the little sticker lanterns.

Pinch and fold the petite stickys in half.

Stick 1/2 of the sticky to the other 1/2 of the
second sticky.

Keep folding stickers in half and sticking them
together until you have reached your desired fullness.

Then seal up the stickers around the piece of twine.

Cute!!! I can't wait to do a fuller version!

Next we ties leaves to the twine.

That was it,...... cute fast and fun. Hang on
a door as a modern natural wreath.......

...or hang in the air as a fall catcher.
