Trick or Treat!

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year.  It is a season where there isn't a big dinner to prepare, there is lots of candy and you can be a child again for a few hours when dressing up in costume!  I love handing out candy in costume to all the little ghosts and goblins!
This month The Robin's Nest has its Halloween papers on sale at 20% off.  Be sure to do your shopping early to give you plenty of time to make your Halloween treat bags, party favors or Halloween decorations. 

Today I have a cute Trick or Treat Shadow Box using The Robin's Nest papers, cute Halloween Ghost and Bat Embellishments, Black Dew Drops , Connie Crystal beautiful crystals add and bite of sparkle.
Cut papers to fit the shadow box.

Spray paint the white shadow box with a flat black paint. 
Adhere the papers to each of the boxes and add all your spooky treasures! In the large box in the lower right corner are alternating Black Dew Drops and Black Diamond Dew Drops on the borders tiny rusty ivy, and a vintage three prong fork with a little owl bead.  The Robin's Nest Little Friends Snow Angel in the upper right corner (with wings folded back)!
