Halloween is just a few days away!

And since it is so close, over the next few days, I want to feature a few last minute projects you can pull together for Halloween.

We all love jack o' lanterns so how about a jack o' lantern shaker! This was inspired by the lovely Sara Batkin who knows how to do Halloween right!
Start with a painted dowel, a jack o' lantern face (mine is 3 inches, cut with the Cricut Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge), and a treat cup.
 Fill a treat cup with rice or beans or something that will rattle when shaken.
Attach the treat cup to the round circle cut for the back. The treat cup has an adhesive edge so just peel off the protective layer to expose the adhesive before attaching.
 Attach the face to the top of the treat cup. I just used glue dots. Attach the dowel.
Add a bit of ribbon and rattle away! Happy Halloween!
