My latest attempt at craftiness!

I love to blog stalk crafty blogs! I have found some really awesome ones lately... there are some amazingly crafty ladies out there! I love seeing all the fun things they have created but hate the guilt I feel after visiting their sites... guilt from not decorating my home as cute as theirs, for not throwing as awesome a party for my kids as they did, for not doing craft projects with my kids... etc. Oh well, some day I will have the time and energy to try all those amazing ideas.
When I saw this project, I knew that I had to do it... it's just too cute to pass up!

I put a cake board on top and then wrapped a coordinating ribbon around the edge.
Can you stand this?! I just love it. Here is the instructions so you can make your own dang cute cake platter.

Pointy boots
 Flat, plastic platter(charger) or Plastic cauldron 
Orange vinyl
2 heavy duty plastic cups (not disposable)
Black electrical tape

2 - Orange 1.5" wide ribbon 36" long

2 - Black/white polka dot 22" long
2 - Black/white check/striped 18"long
2 - Orange thin ribbon 12" long
2 - Black thin ribbon 7" long

1. The boots were purchased at Saver's and had hardly been worn. 
I bought black  boots and then cutout vinyl, orange circles with my cricuit.

Stuff the boots with newspaper - leaving about 2 inches of space at the top.

1. These heavy duty plastic cups were green until I spray painted them orange, I also bought these from Saver's.

2. To make the stripes - adhere black electrical tape around the cup - easy, peasy!! 

This was how the website did it, with the black cauldron on top of the feet, also SUPER cute. I may remove the cake plate and put my cauldron on for trick or treaters.
