I really enjoyed the challenge of making a project each week. Hope they do this again!
We don't really do Halloween in a big way around here. I just thought it would be nice to have a little something spooky. Although the kiddos assure me that even though I added shiny green eyes to the little bat, he is still more cute than spooky. So here is my project. It's a basket for the Halloween candy we will give to the trick-or-treaters. It's made of canvas lined with craft weight Pellon iron in interfacing.
And here is a close up of those not-so-spooky-glowing-green bat eyes.
I guess they are not really so spooky after all. But I don't really do spooky. CSI is about as terrifying as I can handle. So this will do nicely for this holiday. Especially since it is going to be in plain sight.
That (above) is the base of this project. Just a couple of rectangles of canvas with the heavy interfacing ironed on. Then I sewed the corners up to make a box, made a liner and put a bottom of heavy styrofoam to make it even more rigid. Super simple, very fun. I think I could even make different liners for other days or seasons. Not that we will really need a candy basket this large for any other season but....it is possible.
I also want to say a big Thanks! to Krista for linking to my little circus project on her blog! Thanks :)
