Yeah I said pumpkin poop, so what! I mean didn't you ever read that book, Everyone Poops? Read the poem and you'll understand why this year we will not be carving our pumpkins. We'll be "felting" them instead. I can't wait for you all to see how spooktacular they turn out.
This week I'm getting straight to the point, leaving out all the unnecessary TALKY TALKY, that I tend to do. Who am I kidding. PAAALEASE!!
Making it's first debut on Smell the coffee Lisa, I now present to you:
I Googled "Pumpkin Clip Art" to find the cute little pumpkin logo and then just copied and pasted it into Microsoft Word. I then pulled the cute poem from Organized Christmas, and typed into the Word document. I used my neighbor D's funky scissors to cut out the poem and just used my glue tape to tape it onto the cut (I cut it up myself with regular scissors) orange poster board I purchased from Walmart for $.57. The yummy Pumpkin Poop found inside the pumpkin designed treat bags (I had these left over from the Halloween Treat boxes) are no other than Reeses Pieces. Can you say YUM? I think the Boys ate more of the candy then I actually used to make the project.
I made a total of 5 of these.
The plan is for me to make all the kids trick or treat bags. There are 5 kids, all boys (My son, his brother, RJ the neighbor and my two nephews.) Sheesh I hope I'm not leaving anyone out. I hate that feeling, like when you are forgetting something or someone. Anyway, I can't give the kids empty trick or treat bags, that would be just wrong. So inside each of the bags they will find their Halloween Treat boxes, Mummy Gum, Pumpkin Poop and these cool Pixie Tricks (all these items can be found on my blog, click on Halloween under labels on my left side bar) you're about to see. Who knows what else will be inside the treat bags.
I don't know this is all I've made so far.
Now without further ado, I now present to you:
Pixie Tricks (Yeah I thought of these all by myself, can you believe that? I'm serious, I didn't steal it from anyone. Okay maybe an idea here or there, but not one specific place.)
I purchased a bag of Pixie Sticks from Walmart and I actually bought the cute tags I glued to the pixie sticks off ebay, 30 for $2. I would have made them but I don't own the cute flower punch and neither does D my neighbor. Anyway both sides of the pixie sticks have a different Halloween picture on it. The orange ribbon, I believe I purchased from Walmart and had on hand. The green jar The BF had sitting in the garage.
Being the genious that I am, I thought for now, until I put these in the kids treat bags, I'd use the jar and left over Reeses Pieces to make a cute table centerpiece. Now if I can just keep The Boy from eating all the Reeses Pieces, this display might actually last a week or two
I wish I had more of the cute cut outs, I don't think 15 of them are enough.
Just in case you were wondering, I'm totally taking donations so I can purchase my own paper punches. I've found them for $13.95 each on ABC Distributing, plus you have to pay shipping. Let me know if you'd like my pay pal information to make a donation. LOL
So that's all I've got for this weeks Halloween Spooktacular. Coming up next week, a Spooky Halloween Tree (I've already picked my branches). Now if I could just find some cheap miniature Halloween ornaments before the end of the week. Any suggestions? If not it will be a Spooky Ghost Tree!
Oh what the heck, one more photo for good measure.
You all come back now you hear!
