Wilton Cookie Class - Halloween Cookie Bouquet

Today I took the Wilton Cookie Blossom Class at Michaels.  Our teacher was Anita and I had a blast.  I created this Halloween Cookie Bouquet.  I bought the Halloween paint can at Michaels and picked up the floral Styrofoam and  candies at the Dollar Tree.  I used the Celebrate It 20 pc Halloween Cookie Cutter set which I also bought at Michaels.

This was my first attempt at cookies on a stick.  It seems sooooo much easier that making a whole cake.  I see lots of cookies in my future.  :)

Here are the cookies - you couldn't see the bat hiding behind the "BOO"

Halloween Wine Charms

I just love fall!  It means the holidays are coming and I have already started the transformation of my home decor.  I have fall colors everywhere!

There is a ton of Halloween decor out, so I have been trying to figure out what my first project is going to be.  Awhile back I found wine charm wire hoops on ebay.  They were 100 for $6.00!  I went ahead and bought them and knew I would use day.  The other day I was browsing in JoAnn's when I came across some Halloween charms for jewelry making.  I figured how cute and easy that would be to make some Halloween wine charms.  The charms were $3.99 for 5 with 40% off.  Can't beat that!  So, I bought a pack and made these 5 wine charms with beads I already had at home.  I have a feeling that my friends are going to get wine charms for gifts this year.  : D

Braclet made with Jolee's Jewels

I made this braclet to match the jewelry we received as one our gifts for standing up in the wedding.  I used the Jolee's Jewels (from Michaels) that were same color as our necklace and earrings.  I had the clasp and spacers laying around, so I figured it would be a good time to use them.  I thought it came out very well.  :)
