Decorate To Celebrate Challenge #87

Good Morning Friends & Welcome Visitors!

Today is a new challenge at Decorate To Celebrate! This challenge is "Anything Goes".  (No cards allowed unless they are 3-D box cards).  It is really getting chilly here in Maryland so for my design team project I decided to make a Scarecrow Hot Chocolate Gift Holder.  I know a little boy that doesn't like candy very much but he loves hot chocolate; I thought he might like finding this in his trick or treat bag.

Here he is without the hot chocolate inside.

I used the mug from SVGCuts "An Afternoon At Aunt Elaine's" I used Powder Puff Chalks from Quick Quotes to give him his sweet face.  I am getting super addicted to them.  It seems like no project is done until I chalk it.  The twine is Halloween Orange Licorice, and everything else is from my scraps/stash of embellishments.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Craftin' Desert Divia's -Link It Up Party #43 - Brown & Orange
Clear It Out Challenge Blog - "Use Orange Stash" I used Orange Button, Orange Scrap Paper, Orange Clothes Pin, Orange Candi.
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Trick or Treat or Something Sweet
Die Cuttin Divas - Challenge #189 Halloween
Party Time Tuesdays - PTT Challenge #187 Anything Goes
Craft My Life - October/November - Anything Goes But A Card
D.L Art - October Linky Party
Not Just Cards - Challenge #5
Creative Cutting Challenge - Challenge #41 Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge- Challenge #282 Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving/Bon-Fire Night
