For my first project I made coffins with candy skeletons inside. Which would be perfect as party favors for your Halloween Shin-dig, or super cute as invitations if you included a little card with the details inside! 
 
For my second Spook-Tacular project I made a graveyard scene. 
I used the chocolate skeletons and "buried" them in brownies for a Spooky Halloween Dessert!

Okay, on to today's project..... no skeletons or chocolate this time lol!
How about some cute, yet kinda spooky hanging lanterns!
Jack-O-Lanterns that is!!


I used the Spooky Treat Basket files for the lanterns.


 The Jack-O-Lantern faces came from a couple sets:



The leaves and stems I used are from the Fall Celebration Kit.


I used the Spooky Treat Basket set to make the lantern part, 
but instead of cutting the sides with lots of strips, like the file comes:

I altered it to make the long rectangle at the bottom taller, 
and the strips shorter to become top and bottom pieces.

But then I decided that I needed to leave the top open a little
so I could get the LED tealights in and out. I made one of
the pieces hinged and took the strips off half of it to make a lid.

They fold up to be able to reach inside!

But if you want a good seal so the lights show up brighter you can
just tuck it down a little into the lantern like this.

I hope you've enjoyed yourself along the hop so far! Thanks for joining us this weekend!!
You're next stop is Jessica L.

And come back to visit next weekend when we will be participating in 
another AWESOME blog hop featuring Peachy Keen Stamps!!
