UnBOOlievable Blog Hop

Welcome to the UnBOOlievable Blog Hop!


Today a great group of crafty ladies have teamed up to share with you some super spooky and cute projects, just in time for Halloween! If you've come from Teresa's blog, you're in the right place. If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog

October has been an insanely busy month for me, and all of my projects have been kept fairly simple. For today's hop I decided to make some party decorations that could be used to accent a Halloween centerpiece.




I've seen these paper straws a lot around the blogosphere lately and was so happy when I finally saw some at Michael's! I purchased a pack of 15 (there were three of each color - black, orange, and purple) for only $1.99! They're super cute and I can't wait to come up with some other project ideas for them. 

The main shapes are cut at 4" from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge and the spooky pumpkin and bat are cut at 2.5" from the Teresa Collins Chic & Scary Cricut cartridge. I blinged them up a little bit by adding some adhesive rhinestones around the border. Super cute and easy, and they can even be reused if they don't get damaged during the chaos of the party. :)

Before you head to the next stop of the hop, please check out my 600 follower giveaway! I'm only 35 followers away from reaching 600 followers. :)

Your next stop is Christine's blog!

  3. What a great idea! I have some of these straws only they're from the Pepsi Co. I wonder if I can paint them with Halloween or possibly Christmas colors. Thanks for the idea!
