I am so excited to be sharing my first Epiphany Crafts project with you today! I love creating Halloween projects and I have this fun candy dish to share with you. I combined cutting files from SVGCuts (Cauldron) and Snapdragon Snippets (3D Witch Boots) to create the dish. I kept the cauldron fairly simple. I embossed the outer panels with the Sizzix Spiderweb embossing folder and tied a bit of ribbon around the top.
I decorated the legs and the witches boots with the Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor patterned papers. I also added some small tags to the shoe laces I made using the EC Round 14 and Pennant 25 tools.

I love, love to make home decor projects for Halloween, and I’m always looking for something quick and easy that I can make for myself, and possibly a few extra for little gifts, too. Where I live in the South, we call these types of things ‘bowl fillers’ because they are small enough to pile together into one big bowl. Love how they look all jumbled up together!
1. Cut a piece of muslin fabric. Gather an old plastic bowl and fill the bottom inch of so full of water. Add dye to the water and soak your fabric in the bowl for a minute or two. There are many supplies that will work well for the fabric dye. I used spray mist ink, but you could also use fabric dye, re-inkers, food coloring, or even Kool-Aid powder.
2. Remove fabric from the dye solution and allow to dry completely.
Tip: if your fabric is too dark, immediately rinse it under tap water to remove some of the dye before it dries. If it’s too light, plop it back into the bath for a few more minutes. Remember that your fabric will lighten a bit naturally as it dries.
3. Create pumpkin patterns from scratch paper. Fold muslin pieces in half and pin patterns to the fabric. Cut out.
4. Stitch faces onto the pumpkins. I used excess fabric cut into rough triangles for the noses. The mouths are a piece of hemp string stitched on with black embroidery floss. Create eyes using the Epiphany Crafts Round 14 and Round 20 Button Studio Tools and black patterned paper. Stitch eyes to pumpkins.
5. Pin right sides of fabric pumpkins together, and machine stitch around edge, leaving approximately a 1/4″ seam allowance. Start your stitching from one side, stitching all the way around until you reach the top. Leave the top open. Flip your fabric right side out. Stuff with polyfill batting, add a piece of stick for a stem, and whip stitch top opening closed. Tie fabric and twine around the stem.
