Corrosive Challenge #160 - Treacherous Treats

Trick-or-Treat!  Well, maybe no tricks this time.  Our new challenge for this fortnight at The Corrosive Challenge Blog is to  make a Halloween themed treat holder or container.

This month we are lucky enough to welcome back an amazing Sponsor, Sassy Studio Designs. There are some awesome new Disney Villain and Halloween releases available right now.  Perfect for playing along with our challenge!  I decided to work with Wicked Honey part of the Halloween Honey's collection at the Sassy Studio Designs Store.  I love her!
Picking the image was easy, but this truly was a challenge for me.  At first I was going to buy a pre-made container of some sort, but I really wanted it all to be handmade, so after a little googling, I decided on a cone holder.  It worked out perfectly because it also looks a little like a witch hat!  I simply took a piece of design paper and made a cone, glued the edges together and trimmed the top to make a circle.  I added black feathers around the rim, and attached a ribbon for hanging.  I also added a tassel to the bottom using more feathers, a circle sentiment ("A Treat For You"), and ribbon to hang it.  I added pearls, flowers and some stickers to give it all some dimension.

She is colored with Copics, and cut out using a beaded oval Spellbinder die cut.  I added glossy accents to her lips and eyes, and Eucalyptus stickles to the cobwebs on her hat and sash.

This was a super fun project, and now I have a handmade decoration to add to my collection of Halloween stash!  Can't wait to see some sickeningly sweet projects at The Corrosive Challenge Blog. Come and join the fun!
