halloween centerpiece craft project

Elizabeth Gray from Stampin’ Up! sent over instructions for how to recreate this adorable “Trick or Treat Ensemble“. I’m especially loving the DIY Halloween-themed wrappers on the mini chocolates! (I’m not sure what brand the chocolates in the picture are, but they look about the same size as Hershey’s Nuggets, which come in lots of yummy flavors and are available at most grocery stores.)

Read on for step-by-step instructions, after the jump!
