Halloween Candy Jars


Each made from a 4″ clay pot as the base and 4″ clay saucer for the lid and spray painted with black gloss paint. A wooden finial is added to the lid for easy opening. The lid has a gasket seal for a tight fit.

Each piece measures approximately 9 1/2″ tall (with lid) and 4 1/2″ wide at the widest part (which is the glass bowl).

Makes a great Halloween gift!

Available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.

Mason Jar Tissue Holders

So fun to make and look great in any room or to give as a gift.  These tissue holders (including the tissues) are available for purchase at my Etsy shop.

Materials needed:

  • Wide mouth Mason Jar with lid
  • Xacto knife
  • Felt
  • Hot glue
  • Spray paint for the lid
  • Acrylic paint or chalk paint for the jar
  • Paint brush
  • Embellishments
  • Tissues (Use Kleenex Perfect Fit as they fit perfectly in the mason jar.


  1. Paint the Mason jar with acrylic or chalk paint.
  2. Spray paint the ring part of the lid.
  3. Using the lid insert from the Mason Jar, cut a circle out of the felt. Then with the Xacto Knife, cut an X in the middle.
  4. Use the hot glue gun to glue the felt to the inside of the lid. This will make it more sturdy when you go to pull out the tissue.
  5. Put the tissues inside the Mason Jar and screw the lid on.
  6. At this point, you are ready to add your embellishments as desired.

Gingerbread Tag and Bottle Tag

The scalloped tag, door hanger and gingerbread figure were created with the Cricut and Design Space.  The To/From stamp is from The Chatty Press.  The gingerbread figure is embellished with Reflections rhinestones and the icing is made with PermEnamel White Accent Liner.

The challenge at Allsorts Challenges for Week 278/9 is “Tags”.

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #180 is “All About the Holidays”.  The holiday I chose is Christmas.

I rocked the Watercooler with my tags:

Coffee Card

This stamp is a blast from the past.  I haven’t used Changito from Stampendous in a while.  So when I saw the challenge over at Double Ds, which is a coffee challenge, I thought of this stamp.  The card is an A2 card with the mat being a touch smaller and the Kraft cardstock cut at 4″ x 5.25″.  The coffee cup is cut using the Cricut and Design Space.  The sentiment is written with the Cricut.  As I said, the stamp is Changito Coffee stamp from Stampendous.

Double D Challenge – Tea or Coffee

Christmas in July

An A2 card with the white cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The branch is cut using the Cricut and Design Space.  I cut one on green cardstock and one on vellum and layered them.  The pearls are from Reflections.  The sentiment is written with the Cricut.
