Candy Corn Hanging Treat Holder



Before Halloween comes and goes, I wanted to show you a little project I put together a while back for Through the Craftroom Door. My friend Marti, one of the founders/publishers, asked if I'd do a little tutorial for the magazine on coloring with Tombow Dual Brush-Pen markers. As soon as Marti mentioned a Halloween project, I thought about this adorable Stampendous Hang Out Spider set. I know, I know, I've posted with this set a few times already this fall, and each time that bloomin' image is colored nearly the exact same way - fancy that! But that's what happens with tutorials - you end up with a jillion extras of the exact same image. So please bear with me and yet another spooky green watercolored background for this cute little arachnid.

In addition to a candy-corn-themed card, I was inspired by the sentiment in this set ("Let's 'Hang Out' This Halloween") to make a tussie-mussie-style candy corn hanging treat holder. Wouldn't these make cute party favors? Or teacher treats?

For step-by-step Tombow coloring instructions, check out my tutorial in Through the Craft Room Door. I haven't seen the current issue yet, but I do know it's featuring all different coloring mediums, plus tons of other papercrafting content!

Thanks for popping in today!

I love seeing your little spider on various projects! Helps us keep in mind that we need to ink up our stamps more than once a season (something I know all of us crafters are gulity of!) Wonderful little project- guess I better get to work on some Halloween giftys for my neice and nephew!
