Halloween Spider Pumpkin

I can’t stop making black & white Halloween decorations this year..I just love the combo! I also can’t get over these cute little white pumpkins I found at Target recently. With some new Lifestyle Crafts cutting dies I was able to transform a plain white pumpkin into a spooky spider pumpkin to add to my Halloween decor.

Lifestyle Crafts Tricks 'N Treats

From the new Tricks ‘N Treats collection I used the Spiderweb Punches die to embellish this itty bitty pumpkin. I simply cut the dies out then ran them through my Xyron machine. Off topic but I purchase this at Michaels about 6 years ago and recently found it in my garage with the original cartridge. What was I thinking!?! I love this thing! Have you used one? You can create stickers out of anything that will fit. I purchased it for my scrapbooking but as you can see I’m way behind on my scrapbooking if I just recently discovered it again. My only complaint about using it with such small dies is that a lot of the stickiness got on top of the spiders. But overall I like my new Halloween spider pumpkin, it’s different and the colors work perfectly with my decor.

Have YOU pulled out the Halloween decorations? What are your favorite Halloween colors?
