Trick or Treat!

Jen Matott here to share a fun little project that I did for Halloween.  I just love decorating for Halloween!

Imagine that you have handed out candy since 6:00pm and now it's 8:30 or 9pm and you are low on candy and it's getting late for the kids.  You need a sign to let trick or treaters know that you are done for the night!  I found this idea on Pinterest and made my own little sign for this purpose.

 I started with a canvas banner piece from Donna Downey, Prima Marketing.  I used Faber-Castell's Stamper's Big Brush pen in Black to stamp the Background Basics 2 dotted stamp in 2 rows.

 Then I used Card Labels to stamp the oval frame onto a book page.  The "out of treats" was stamped with Prima's Press.   Next, I used Scrap Happy Glue to adhere the cut out frame to a doily and also glued some of the Candi and Jelli Dots onto the stamped dots.

 A bit of ribbon was added to hang it from the door knob for a fun way to let the kids know we are out of treats!  So cute!

I hope you liked this Halloween decoration!  Trick or Treat...
