I first painted a tote like this about twenty years ago, when I first got into decorative painting. I love everything about the Halloween season, & I loved this tote. I gave it away to a relative, & I've regretted it ever since. Especially since I've visited said family member many times over the years, including the Halloween season, & sad to say, the tote hasn't made an appearance for many many years. Taught me a lesson on who to give my beloved handcrafted items to!
Anyway, being the organized type A person that I am, I held on to all my patterns from previous projects, & I vowed to make this Halloween tote again, for me! I even recycled this wood tote, having picked it up in a yard sale a few years ago, specifically with this project in mind. Hopefully I'll have it finished up soon, & will post the final result!
