Craft Fair Goodies: Gross Halloween Test Tubes

October 1, 2010

in Altered Stuff,Craft Fair

yep, I said gross. Haha. I was going for silly & gross with these. I've always seen people using test tubes as a creative way to package candy - and I love the look! Unfortunately I could NEVER find the test tubes anywhere.Thanks to one of my readers who emailed me an idea, as well as a link to this store where I bought these test tubes. Price was great & shipping was super fast! I highly recommend.(FYI - I also bought these cork stoppers to fit into the test tubes)


These are filled with Skittles. The Halloween fair I am doing is a Peanut Free event so I had to stick to candy that is known as Peanut Free. I separated the Skittles out and decided on names for each color. I grabbed some inspiration for these on various websites - so I cannot take full credit for all of them.


"Bat Boogers"


"Frankie's Fungus"


"Pumpkin Poop"


"Ghost Droppings"


"Vampire Blood"


And here are ALL the test tubes I was able to create out of one large bag of Skittles. Not bad!


All stamps are from the "Batty for You" stamp set from Stampin Up - one of my all time faves.

I printed the names on my computer using the font "Kirsten ITC" and then used the Stampin Up Word Window punch to punch them out. I used some brads to adhere them to the scallop. I am very happy with how they turned out!

These are wonderfully spooktacular!! Is it hard to get into craft fairs. I am a SU Demostrator and recently moved to an area where I know very few people and know very little about the surrounding farm communities. Do you have any suggestions how to get involved in the local communities. I miss teaching classes and thought this would satisfy my need. Thanks for your help and suggestions.
