It's time for Tag it Tuesday, crafty friends!

Good morning and welcome! Today I am sharing a multi-media project for Tag it Tuesday. I had so much fun with this. I've had a never-ending love affair with paint, specifically spray paint, and dollar store items forever and it really comes in handy when the holidays roll around. These awesome candy dishes, for example, are actually glass candle sticks and floral arranging bowls--buck apiece! In fact, everything you see here is from the dollar store, except for the tags and banner I made for today's assignment. -- yep...the raven, skull, spider, gourds and netting...all came from the dollar store. Oh and even the tray, but that's a project for another day. ;)

On this one, I used the spooky ghost die, slider treat box, and chocolate greetings dies. The sentiment is from the All Around Halloween stamp set.

For this label, I used the vintage label and banner die set and the awesome witch stamp from Fright Night. Love!

Here you see the ADORABLE dishes (can you tell I love how they turned out??? Totally!!!), sans candy, with the sweet little wooden scoops inside. The "antique" tray I mentioned earlier.... used to be silver. Watch for a separate post on this project coming soon.

I hope you enjoyed my fun project today. I sure did! And hubs loves it because, well, candy! ;)

  1. FANTASTIC job with your AWESOME Halloween project Shar, LOVE IT!!!!:)

  2. This is wonderful, Shar!! Could you please share what type type of glue and paint you used to adhere to the glass? I love this idea!! ~hugs, Saundra

    1. Thank you Saundra! :) The paint I used is just regular Krylon spray paint. This happens to be indoor-outdoor but I've used other kinds of Krylon on glass too. My fave glue to use on such projects is Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue. It works great for glass to glass application and drys fast and strong. It's the gold bottle. HTH!

  3. You are amazing, Shar! These are so cool!!!

  4. Shar ~ Well this is seriously to FUN, too CREATIE and TOTALLY in the mail to my house ~ ASAP! LOL! Seriously LOVE how you find $1 finds and make them look like a million dollars! Have a great day!

  5. Shar, these are SO neat!! I love how you take things from the dollar store and turn them into works of art. Great job!

  6. Your idea is wicked awesome OMG I have craft envy right now as I'd see something like this but not in a million years would I envision what you did. You are extremely talented and oh so clever. Watch out Martha Stewart. You are good really, really good!

  7. Awesome job on your project. Your Dollar Store is full of goodies. A very clever idea. Can't wait to see what you have in mind for the tray :D
