Halloween Blog Hop ~ Day 3

Welcome back for the final day of the Halloween Hop.
I am extremely pleased that you have returned for another day. I have been excited to read the comments and eager to make something appealing to all who visit.

I planned on creating some yummy treats to share with my children. I think they get a little jealous sometimes since I make all these neat treats for my students, so this scary sweet is going to be for them...no tricks either!
Supplies...Today Joann's had a special on the Wilton candy melts...$1.49 per bag. I purchased 4 bags. Michaels had the candy molds on sale for buy one get one 50% off.
These are the new molds I thought I had to buy (my 16 year son searched for the old Halloween ones and said he couldn't find them).  I was a bit concerned with the skulls, but they are actually pretty cool. There are two separate pieces and you attach them with melted chocolate. Once the chocolate dries they stick together perfectly. (Excessive candy can be trimmed. I did not trim mine since I figured my kids can eat it rather than discarding.) The tombstone is fun too! It is two pieces and the top one sits in the base.
Just a few more pieces. Remember I said my son looked for my candy molds? Well, when I got home I found them right where I told him to look! I had  3 different pumpkin molds and a haunted house (not pictured). I decided to keep the new molds and I am glad I did! Those tombstones are my favorite. I am going to make more and add different colors.
 Here is another project I wanted to try.

These were Halloween colored scraps I found in my paper box.
I ran all of the pieces thru our paper shredder to make confetti for a gift box.
I used Martha Stewart Drippy Goo edge punch to create toppers.
The bakery size treat bags are just right and they fit inside the box. 
The Chinese take-out style box will be a surprise.

Thank you for visitng throughout this weekend. I have enjoyed creating these projects and it was thrilling to see the other projects too. It never ceases to amaze me that there are so many talented people. Here is another goodie that I will be adding for the winner that will be announced on Monday morning. Be sure to leave a comment on each project posted for a greater chance of winning.
Sunday's addition.
All the Halloween/Autumn treats!

Don't forget to visit Dorcas at 4 Crafty Angels and then all the others along the hop. A big THANKS to all that participated!
