Happy Halloween from the Pumpkin Patch!!

Here is a fun Halloween Decoration or Trick or Treat Pail designed by Angela Barkhouse. To recreate this fun pail

Use the Cricut Expression and die cut the following shapes
PaperDoll Dressup Cartridge –
Size 3 ½ & 3” - ghosts
Size 2 ¼” – grass (after cutting, emboss grass with the Forest Branches embossing folder)
Size 8 ¾” – fence
Size 3” – black cat
Size 3” – bat
Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge-
Size 3 ½” – Pumpkin
Using the Stampendous Jumbo Jacks stamp, stamp pumpkins on orange cardstock, stamp face parts on yellow cardstock, and stamp stem on green cardstock. Cut out and assemble.
Cut 2 pieces of blue cardstock 7 3/8” x 12”. Adhere these to the pail. Adhere the fence to the pail, then the grass over the top of the fence. Using foam dots, position pumpkins, ghosts, bats, & cats around the pail.
Using the Pre-Inked Outline stamps, stamp “Welcome to my pumpkin patch” and “Treats” onto green cardstock. Punch out each letter with the 1” square punch. Adhere the letters “Welcome to my pumpkin patch” around the bottom of the pail on the grass area.

Cut a 5 ½” circle from blue cardstock. Adhere this to the pail cover and then adhere the letters “treats” around the top half of the blue circle. Place a 3 ½” pumpkin to the cover.
Using the 2 5/16” wooden block and Brayton 25 pt font, spell out “HIP HIP HOORAY TODAY IS CANDY DAY” and stamp on a 3 ½” pumpkin. Tie a ribbon to it and hang from the handle.
