2. Boo Bags
Ghost treat bags so easy it’s scary!
Frosted plastic gift bags or white sac bags turn into a ghost after trimming
off the tops. Round the top corners of each bag with scissors and glue two
googly eyes. Fill the bag with your Halloween treats. Punch two holes through
the top portion of the bag and thread your Twisted Sugar Twine bakers twine
through the holes, and tie in a bow.
3. ITSY BITSY Wreath
Turn any wreath into a cute and creepy spider web in minutes!
To do so, randomly distribute 8-10 pushpins around the backside of the
wreath. With the bakers twine tie a knot around a pushpin. Take your string
and go to the opposite side of the wreath and loop around pushpin,
repeating this step up, down, and side to side with all pushpins until desired
web look is achieved. (For big impact, place a large plastic spider in the
middle of web). For more crawling fun, cut and hang long strands of twine
from wreath and adorn with plastic spiders crawling up twine.

branches or cinnamon sticks). You’ll need about 20 lengths per candle/jar.
Run hot glue along stick. Attach stick vertically to side of candle/jar. Be sure
to use a low-temperature setting to minimize melting. When glued stick is
dry; glue next stick snugly against it. Repeat step to cover candle/jar. Using
bakers twine tie a bow around candle/jar.
5. The Thankful Tree
A fun and simple Thanksgiving project the whole family will be thankful for.
Take a bunch of long branches and place in a large vase or jar. Wrap bakers
twine around the top of the vase/jar. Cut out scrapbook paper shaped leaves,
circles, tags, hearts, or get as creative as you’d like. Use marker or pen to
write on each leaf one thing you are thankful for. Punch a hole in the finished
leaf about 1/4 to 1/2 inch from any edge. Cut twine 5-7 inches long. Put the
twine through the hole and tie the ends together to make a loop. Hang the
loop over a branch end.

leafs and hang one for each day.
