I know candy corn is one of those things that you either love it or hate it....personally I love it so I thought it would be fun to make a little cone filled with tricks and treats....


I stared off by painting the mini paper mache cone with Art Anthology's Limeaid adding lots of texture as I applied the paint.   


Next I painted several sizes of the Art Anthology Embedibles with Imperial (purple) Dimensional Paint and left them to dry over night. 


After all the little dots had dried I glued them onto the cone using Aleene's Tacky Glue in a random pattern and added a bit of Black tiny Ball Trim around the edge of the cone.  A bit of Purple and Green Twine were twined together for the handle.


I then added this darling little trickster from the collage sheet - Happy Halloween.
And of course I filled it with a fun assortment of candy corn and pumpkins!
Mmmmmm - off to to a bit of snacking now - LOL!!



Art Anthology Supplies: Limeaid, Trolley Grey (on the moon), Imperial Dimensional Paints, Embedibles Circles


Other Supplies: Moon & Sentiment Stamps (JFF Rubber Stamps)
