My Creative Space: Halloween bits and bobs

I was feeling crafty yesterday so decided to make a few things along the theme of Halloween seeing as it was the 31st October...

Being new to the area I wasn't sure if we would get any Trick or Treaters or not so I bought some fun size Milky Way's to be on the safe side. 


I decided to make some of the treats a little bit more interesting...I cut some toilet roll tubes in half, covered them in orange paper, drew some little pumpkin faces on them and wedged 2 Milky Ways in each. Orange circles topped and tailed the tubes and then I wrapped them in some plastic (cut up sandwich bags) and tied the plastic with green and white bakers twine (I was hoping to use Green curling ribbon but can't remember where my present packing supplies are!) I was quite pleased with how my little pumpkin treat containers turned out...


We (Mr Mischief and I) also baked some cupcakes and I decorated them with orange butter icing and then chocolate writing icing and green sprinkles to turn them into little pumpkins...


And finally I decided to make Mr Mischief a little superhero eye mask to go with his superhero cape I made him last year. I found some red card in my scraps box, drew a rough eye mask shape on the back and cut it out then cut out eye holes. I found some star stickers for some decoration and then used some blue wool to tie around each side to hold it on his head...


He had lots of fun rushing around in his superhero costume. 


I named him Mr Mischief (of course) and here he is with his loyal sidekick McRhettles rummaging in the garden!


It's funny how it's the days when I get randomly creative that I have the most fun!
Today I'm linking up with Our Creative Spaces.
