  • Black Craft Twinkles Writer paint
  • Jar of Snow-Tex (4 oz.)
  • Glamour Dust Glitter by DecoArt
  • White jumbo cupcake holders (mine were from Wilton)
  • Medium sized smooth foam ball

  2. Lay cd on top of adhesive on remaining 12" x 12" paper and trace with pencil. Cut out with scissors.
     
  3. From the 12" x 12" black paper, cut out two strips 12" long by 2" wide. Lay side by side to form one long strip. Place tape in middle to join the two strips.
     
  4. Accordian fold the strips back and forth in approximately 1.5" segments. When finished, cut diagonally on both sides 1/8" down from top of folded strip. Unfold to reveal pennant banner design.

  5. Carefully glue gun pennant banner around side of CD, and cut off and glue any excess that overlaps.
     
  6. Use glue gun to glue top of styrofoam cone to bottom of CD.
     
  7. Embellish bottom of stand with black and silver self-adhesive rhinestones, and dot in between pennant sections using orange rhinestones.

For cupcake:

  1. Using liner brush, paint alternating sections fo the cupcake holder Jack O' Lantern Orange. Let dry.
     
  2. Use Black Craft Twinkles to dot in between these alternating stripes as shown. Set aside and let dry.
     
  3. Cut off the bottom of the foam ball to create a flat surface using kitchen knife or styrofoam cutter.

  4. Add a few drops of water to your bottle of Snow-Tex paint. This will give it a creamier consistency for your "frosting". Frost your cupcake everywhere except for the bottom. While wet sprinkle on beads and gently press into place. Also place wooden ball into place into this wet paint. Sprinkle on Glamour Dust as well over top. Let dry.
