October was one of my chosen months to create for Toletown ~ a fun gathering place for Creatives! (found on-line here) ~ and the ‘painting topic’ for October was ‘Boo Crew‘. Once I learned of this, the ideas started forming in my mind, and immediately my thoughts were to create a ‘Boo Crew Brew‘…then the ideas kept my mind busy from there.

Creating a Punch Jar Label and coordinated Straw Slides….. and then serving it up with Monster Cookies on the side!

How darling are these ‘Boo Crew Members‘ with their leggings and socks!

Paint your very own ‘Boo Crew Brew‘ Punch Jar Label and coordinated Straw Slides thru an instruction packet and video provided thru Toletown (found here).

Can you imagine creating Mr Froggie and Blackie the Cat as Straw-Slides as well? The ideas keep coming.

Once painted, be sure to fill up your Punch Jar with your favorite Halloween Punch Recipe (click here for a few idea on Pinterest).

Then add the Straw-Slides to each glass and serve-it-up!

Here is a fun idea ~ add your guests name to each banner for a place setting or cup IDs.


Looking for something sweet to serve with the ‘Boo Crew Brew’? Try our Monster Cookies ~ sure to put a smile on each guests face, and melt their hearts too.

Yes, you can play with your food. Recipe Below.

Then Create, Serve or Gift these Yummy Monster Cookies with a fun ‘Cookie Keeper’! By simply sandwiching the Monster Cookies between this hand painted big and small ‘gather round ornament‘ and tie it up with string! (surface found here).

Paint your very own ‘Monster Cookie, Cookie Keeper‘ with this pattern (found here), created in acrylics ~ and on sale for a limited time!

It nicely coordinates together with ‘Boo Crew Brew‘ for your next Halloween Gathering!

How ever you serve it up ~ enjoy this fun ‘Boo Crew Brew‘ and ‘Monster Cookie, Cookie Keeper’ creative project….from my heart and hands to yours.

exclusively, Amy.
