Vellum Pumpkin Centerpiece

Raise your hand if you love pumpkins for fall decorating. (I’m raising both of mine!) I love how versatile they are and that you can use them from the beginning of fall all the way through Halloween and Thanksgiving. There are a lot of pumpkins at my house. Today we’re going to do a vellum pumpkin centerpiece with lots of class and that can easily be changed up for any occasion. Let’s get started!

Vellum Pumpkin Centerpiece Supplies:

Step 1: Tear strips of vellum. Paint one side of the strips with decoupage glue, and begin adhering them to the pumpkin. Vellum is a stiff paper by nature, so you may need to hold it on the pumpkin for a few seconds while the glue begins to bond. Don’t forget the stem!

Step 2: Continue around the pumpkin covering everything twice for a more even appearance, and let dry.

Step 3: Tie a ribbon around the stem.

Step 4: Cut three leaves using a craft knife or electronic cutter. Adhere them to the pumpkin using the decoupage glue.

Now just group your vellum pumpkin with a Natural Twig Pumpkin, some Berry Garland, and flowers, and you have a beautiful centerpiece to enjoy all season.

Halloween Ghost Boxes

I love creating holiday projects that are inexpensive and easy to make. That way, I don’t feel bad about throwing them away after the holiday is over, saving storage space. This project certainly fit my quick and easy/cheap criteria- but it doesn’t look like it!

Halloween Ghost Boxes Supply List:

Step 1. The first step in this project is to select a box shape for your electronic cutting machine. You could also select a box template, and hand cut it. You will need three finished boxes.

The best part about the project, is you can resize the boxes to fit three of them on one 12×12 sheet of cardstock. Even though Core’dinations Vintage Collection cardstock is textured to resemble worn demin- it cuts beautifully in electronic cutting machines!

Step 2. Assemble the boxes using a hot glue gun.

Step 3. Trim a small piece of floral foam to fit the inside of the box. It doesn’t need to fill the box, it will just be a base for the ghosts to sit upright.

6

Step 4. Adhere foam pieces to the bottom of the boxes using hot glue. Cut a section of green tissue paper to cover the floral foam. Adhere tissue paper to the top of the floral foam in the box.

7

Step 5. Using an electonic cutting machine, cut three ghost shapes from white cardstock. You could also hand cut your ghosts. Trim wooden skewers to desired length, and adhere ghost shapes to skewer using hot glue.

8

Step 6. Insert your ghosts into the boxes. Using an electronic cutting machine or dies, cut the letters “BOO” from black glitter cardstock. Make sure to save the centers of the “B” and an “O”, this is what I used for the mouths of my ghosts.

3

Step 7. Adhere “BOO” letters to the box fronts. Adhere the “B” letter centers to the end ghosts, and trim the center of an “O” for the middle ghost. Adhere google eyes to each ghost.

5

Admire your “BOO”tiful creation!

Halloween Paper Treat Boxes

Are you collecting easy Halloween paper craft ideas?  I’ve got a quick way to give treats to friends and family that’s cute and festive! Make up these Halloween paper treat boxes to hide candy or non-sweet treats – surprise your kids, or leave at a co-worker’s desk to make their day!

Halloween-Treat-Boxes-CoredinationsHalloween Paper Treat Box Supplies:

Paper Halloween Treat Boxes 1

Step 1. Cut your paper to the dimensions that will accommodate your treats.  Trimmed paper must be 7″ wide, and I found that 5-6 inches was an ideal size for treats.  You can get 3 boxes from a 12×12 sheet of paper by trimming it as follows:

Cut your 12″ paper in two pieces at 7″, leaving a 5″ wide scrap.  Cut your 7″ wide strip into two equal parts 6″ long.

Your remaining 5″ scrap should be trimmed to 7″ wide.

This will leave you with two cuts for boxes 7″x6″, one 7″x5″, and a 5″x5″ scrap that you can save for another project.

Step 2. Use punch board to create your box templates.

Step 3. Assemble your boxes and tie one end closed with baker’s twine so that you can fill with treats.

Step 4. Embellish with spooky stickers!

Step 5. Fill with treats and tie the second end closed.  Note, a small hole will still remain in the ends of the box, so button-type candies would fall out.  Bite-sized chocolates work much better.

Give these as gifts to the kids (and kids-at-heart) in your life!  They don’t have to be filled with candy – these are a great festive shape for non-sweet Halloween treats, too.  Stickers, rubber balls, jewelry, and small action figures would be great additions to these treat boxes!

I hope you enjoy this quick treat idea!

DIY Acorn Card & Box

Hi friends!  It’s Joy here, sharing a fun fall acorn box and card with you today.  What a fun way to say hello, thank you or happy fall to that special friend, co-worker or teacher!

Acorn-card-Coredinations

Acorn Card and Box Supplies:

Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the pieces for the 3D acorn box and card from Core’dinations Neutrals cardstock and Core Basics white.  These are the pieces that make up the box.

Step 2. Emboss the top of the acorn, the stem and the tan square piece that goes on the card using the Darice basket weave background embossing folder.  The leaf is embossed with the Darice crackle embossing folder.  After embossing, the sanding really brings out the texture.  So cool!

This card is just three simple pieces!  YAY to that!

Step 3. Cut a piece of white cardstock for the inside of the card and stamp it with a stamp from the Joy’s Life It’s All Fall Puns stamp set.  I thought this sentiment I created was perfect for this card!
