Happy Labor Day! The "un-official" end of Summer makes us think of what's ahead. Falling leaves, cooler weather, lots of football games and then before you know it- HALLOWEEN. My most FAVORITE holiday in the world. Today, the designers participating in the Designer Crafts Connection (see logo at right of page to hop forward and back) are bringing you various ideas for party favors OR anything else they want to.
I thought these small wine bottles (recycled, emptied, thoroughly cleaned out and labels removed) would make the perfect Halloween party favors. Filled with small treats, they would be the perfect spooky addition to your bash or just to make for those special neighboorhood friends or co-workers. Fill with seasonally colored m&Ms, skittles, jelly beans etc.
I simply covered the bottle with scraps of patterned paper, added some layered punches and a stamped motif and a pretty/coordinating piece of beaded bling and fabric scraps. For the lid, I painted the lid with white acrylic paint, varnish and Krylon webbing spray to give the Halloweeen Party Favors that special touch.
Insert a glue dot or a small piece of double sided adhesive tape to the inside of the lid. Tape the end of the string to the tape. This will allow your recipient to remove the Halloween party invitation once they unscrew and remove the lid.
To mail, and inexpensively I might add, purchase a plain white bubble mailer and spray with the webbing spray. I purchased my mailer from Office Depot for about $1.75 and it can be mailed with the bottle inside for under $2.00. Make sure you use clear packing tape to secure the mailing and return address.
