Halloween Decor Ideas with Vicki Chrisman and a Prize Winner!!!

Hi Little Blue House friends, Vicki here today to share a Halloween door decor project I created with some of my new products from The Little Blue House.

I started with this simple wood frame shape,
but any plain frame works just great also. I've found some great deals at garage sales for frame for these kinds of projects. 
All it needs is a little paint and your set to go.
I used the fun new Pebbles Inc Halloween collection to create these different sized medallions.

Below is a little three step process of how I assemble my medallions. I start with  one to three strips of paper the same width. ( depending on how big you want your medallion to be )

To have some of the medallions over lap the other, you will have to use something to lift them up higher off the frame. You can use a little piece of 1/2 foam, or in my case I used a small round wood piece about an 1/2 inch thick.

I was most excited to add a banner piece for the Glittery "October" puffy sticker from American Crafts and also the other Glittery pieces, to pull it all together.
I'm loving how this looks on
my front door :)

Thank you soo much for stopping by and letting me share this project with you today!

Some you might think Halloween is about the "Tricks",
but I think it's all about the "Treats"
So why not make the containers you give them in ..... super cute!
I always have a few little ones , close friends kiddos or my nieces and nephews that I like to have a little something special for. 
 Fun little treat bags and buckets are fun to dress up for them when they come Trick or Treating.I think they would also be super fun for teachers, coworkers, ect..   Big kids like candy too :)
 These Treat bags from Crate Paper and white Bakery bags are perfect for dressing up.  I love having the bags with windows on hand for prettying up and putting cookies in for friends.
The Pebbles Inc papers I used are perfect for Halloween. I loved the title cards sheet!  They are so easy to add to a bag, or mat and add to a painted dowel to stick in a container. 

I wrapped the cute gingham ribbon around my painted dowel, before I added the  "Happy Halloween" sign.
I couldn't have enough of those little jack-o-lantern  medallions from Crate Paper !! Oh my how darling!

Another favorite is these wood veneer pieces from Crate Paper
I decided to first mist mine with orange.
After the mist was totally dry, I went back in with black sharpies
Dressing up little gift bag is simple and fun. They always made those who receive them fell extra special.
