"You've been Booed"

Last Wednesday my Halloween treat cone project was featured on The Little Blue House blog. Take a look at this simple and fun project!

You’ve been BOOed” Door Hanger
Don’t you love the Halloween tradition of secretly delivering treats to neighbors on their front step with a note that they’ve been “Booed”? Here is a super cute project for delivering these treats in style.
Roll a full 12”x12” piece of double-sided patterned paper into a cone. I used the Crate Paper- After Dark Collection. Use Scor-tape to secure the edge. Trim around the top. 

Punch two holes at top and thread ribbon through holes from front to create a hanger. Knot ends so they do not pull through the holes. 

Tag: I inked the edges of the tag with black ink. Add Orange and Diamond Stickles where desired to decorate tag. Tie to one side of the handle. Tie two bows with a coordinating ribbon at base of hanger.
Cut 4 12”x1 1/2” strips of coordinating paper and score entire length of each at 1/2” intervals. Fold at score lines. 

Add Scor-tape all around open edge of cone and position 2 strips over tape around opening. Pinch into “pleats” as you go. Add Black Stickles around lower edge of “ruffle."

Glue two remaining strips together end-to-end to form a circle and create a rosette. Add Black Stickles to edge.
Cut kraft tag into a 1 3/4” x 5 1/2” strip. Dove tail the ends. Add Orange Stickles around edge. When dry, add “BOO” glitter stickers, 3 glitter star stickers and handwrite “You’ve been” to the left of BOO and add “ ‘d “ to right.

Glue kraft banner to center of rosette and rosette to center of cone. 

Fill with treats and hang on the doorknob of a special friend or neighbor!
