Mr. Pumpkin Head Skeleton: OTP Project for The Cutting Cafe

Had quite a bit of fun with this project over the weekend. I was wearing glitter and glue for most of it!

I have wanted to make a Halloween Apothecary Spice rack since I spotted one somewhere. I must have been scrolling through Pinterest, but I can't find the pin.

I was inspired to finally get this done after getting a really fun printable stamp set called Halloween Trio from Regina at THE CUTTING CAFE that I wanted to use in conjunction with my rack!

Mr. Pumpkin Head Skeleton turned out to be my favorite part of this project! His body was the "stick" to a lolly pop that I have been hording for years in my Halloween paper. I was happy to find it and really wanted to use it!

The witches hat also came in the set and made me happy to get colored up and added as a decoration on my rack. You can see it there at the bottom snuggled up with a purple glittered rolled rose.

Here is a top view of my bottles, tree, and Mr. Pumpkin Head.

One last photo of my large blue bottle in the middle. That twine that is twisted around that bottle is actually blue bailing twine I found along the side of the road.

By the way, as I colored up these images, I realized they would make super awesome cupcake toppers. Give it a try! I'd be happy to pass along my address so you can send me some of your "work" for me to sample!
