Halloween Coffins

Are you getting ready for Halloween? Our weather forecast for Friday evening is supposed to be cold, windy with a chance of (are your ready for this?) SNOW flurries! Who would have thought that word would be in the forecast this early in the season. Oh my!
Because of my weight loss this year, I've decided not to give out candy this year. So I found little packages of pretzels to give out. I hope the kids like them. We really don't get too many kids anymore. We used to get about 100 but lately it's been more like 20-25. I do like to give my co-workers something. So tonight I finished my project for my co-workers.

I made little coffins and originally I just had the RIP on the front but it looked too plain. So I found this pumpkin by Beccy. I put the R on top of the pumpkin. I'm going to fill them with pretzels.
I am entering these challenges:
That's it for tonight. I am looking forward to the weekend and hoping to get  a bunch of crafting time.  But every time I plan that something always comes up. I do have to make a handout for a Girl Scout science and math training I have coming up. Always something to keep me busy. Have a wonderful Thursday!

These are so cute Donna! I love your idea of filling them up with pretzels and handing them out at work... I'm sure they will be very well received.
Cheers,
Beccy
