ONE last Halloween project for 2009

Okay, talk about last minute here! I finally finished decided it was close enough to finished to use for tonight. I made LB1's last year, but just had to make one for LB2 and I was thisclose to scrapping the whole thing and using canvas bags all adorned like I've seen floating around blog land, but I held back and said "Rachelle, just do it already."


Black cauldron, 77cent craft paint and ribbon. Done, done and done. You might remember last year I used a boa around the top instead of ribbon. Well considering I was still trying to sneeze out the feathers from last year I opted out of that and tore it off. :)






For those of you who say "I can not hand paint worth a cent, not possible." Guess what? Me either, here I'll even give you a close up of my imperfections.



Imperfections or not, I think Bat Girl and Spider Girl will be happy with them! They'll look even better with all the candy they get.for me If only it would warm up a little for us to go out tonight!? We might have to wear our snow suits!



*Finally found, after a year where I was inspired to do this project! Susie over at Susieharrisblog.com did this last October! I put it in my idea file and never saw the link again. Search search search and I can now credit her! Woohoo! Her painting is much better than mine. She puts me to shame! :) It's okay though, she's a doll, I'll let it slide.*




Happy Halloween!
