"So What's New" Blog Hop Is Here!

Welcome to our 2 day So What's New Blog Hop!!! I'm so excited to be participating in my first blog hop! If your hopping over from Susan at Croatian Crafter, then your in the right place. If not, you'll want to hop back to Leah at My Craft and Chat Cafe  and start at the beginning so you can see all the goodies the newbie bloggers have made. Many of us have blog candy to share so you definitely don't want to miss the chance to win.  We are displaying our work to help you get to know us better. We decided that anything goes so I decided to show my creativity by making some home decor for Halloween. I wanted a treat jar for my counter in the kitchen so I decided to make this little cutie.


Supplies to get started.
 Painted black and sprayed with polyurethane to give shine and protection.

White vinyl was used to create poison and bats.


Added silver glitter in the lid.
This was so easy and quick to make that I'm thinking I should rush back to Michael's and get some more glass jars. They had pink, blue, yellow, and orange for 2.99. What a bargain! I had no idea they came in colors. I was looking for clear. I'm so happy I found my pukey green bowl:). It worked perfect for my design.


Recipe:

6" glass bowl
4" terra cotta pot
4" saucer
Ribbon
wooden ball
Poison - 1.82" Happy Hauntings
Bats - 1.24" 1.35", 1.50" Happy Hauntings 
E6000 glue
polyurethane spray
silver glitter
white vinyl
sponge brush
black acrylic paint

Here is my blog candy that you have a chance to win!!!
