Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On

There's a "whole lot of shakin' going on at the Hover home with these
Crafty Secrets Halloween Party shakers!!


These were super easy to make as I already had the "shaker parts"
constructed and just waiting to be used!


The shakers are made from a small round paper mache box
that I had already painted black and glued the lids on after adding rice
for the "shake".
The wood dowels were in place as well....
all I had to do was decorate.


I started by using circles cut from the vintage images
using Crafty Secrets Creating With Vintage Halloween CD #4
and



(backs)

After the circles were glued on front and back,
I added rick rack around each.

A paper trim was glued around each.

I wrapped ribbon around the dowel rods,
tied on tulle and various other ribbons
and I had myself fun Halloween Party Shakers!


and visit the Crafty Secrets store.....
always not only great products but a great sale going on too!!
