Fanciful Halloween Treat Holders

These were so fun to make.  I think it was all the creative out of the box steps. I want to send a big Thank You out to Sue from Sue's Stamping Stuff for coming up with such a terrific idea!

The bases are made from candlesticks from the dollar store that are spray painted black and glued together with E6000. I learned the hard way to make sure and set them on a level surface that pets can't jump up on. :) The toppers are also from the dollar store and are either candle holders or vases.  The two taller ones are two candlesticks glued with tops together so I could get some added height. I just love these ~ can't wait to decorate with them!








These will be entered in the following challenges:

Brandi, these are GREAT!! I've wanted to try something like this, but haven't yet -- I really like that you used different containers for the top -- I think I'm inspired!! :)
