A "Boo"rific Halloween

At The Sisterhood of Crafters this week the challenge is "Celebrate the Holidays". The holiday we are celebrating is Halloween. It's less than 2 weeks away.

For my Halloween project I decorated up these small plastic pumpkins and filled them with candy for my kid's teachers.
All I did was add some paper to the eyes and nose and colored in the teeth. I just stamped a tag and added ribbon. Very simple.
This was what the pumpkins looked like when I got them. I found them at the dollar spot in Target. There were 6 of these in a bag for a buck, I couldn't pass that up. They also had black witches caldrons and white skulls.
Now see what my Sisters did for their Halloween project at The Sisterhood of Crafters.
