Wow, I can't believe how time flies...Halloween is right around the corner and it's time to Decorate to Celebrate Halloween Style. I just love this new DT I am on because I can make decorations till the ghosts come home...I mean cows come home. LOL Speaking of ghosts...yup you guessed it, today's decoration has something to do with ghosts. For trick or treating we always go back to our old neighborhood and spend the evening with my best friend and her husband. She always puts out a huge a spread of food and then we take the kiddos trick or treating. Well her kids have outgrown that stuff and my Austyn has already said this is his last year, but I have Miss Bella to take trick or treating then. Anyway, after trick or treating we come back to Kim's house and we have hot chocolate and something to eat...usually sloppy joes or loaded potato skins or loaded nachos...and sift through the kiddos bags and like I said, she puts on a huge spread. This has been a tradition for about 13 years now and we so look forwards to it every year. So I always make her something for hosting such a great party before and after the trick or treating.
So this is an eraser that came in a pack of 12
different style, from the dollar tree and I created a
mold of it using my new found LOVE for
Amazing Moulding Putty (so be on the watch for more molds)
here is what the mold looks like when done. It sets
up fairly quickly so I can start making my embellishments
within minutes...yeah, love the ease of this.
Then I used my Creative Paperclay ®
to create my little ghosts.
aren't they cute?
I did paint them with white acrylic paint
but I forgot to take a picture
Now as you know I am a frugal crafter. A while back
I made a wreath using a frisbee that had the center cut
out of it and have been desperately trying to find more
of those buggers with no luck. We were cleaning out
the cupboards last week and I had a dozen ice cream
pail lids so hubby gave me the idea to cut the center
out of them and use them as the wreath base...wow,
really, why didn't I think of that...thanks honey!!!
So I traced another circle inside the lid and cut an X
with my exacto knife and then cut the triangle pieces
Then I wrapped ribbon around the lid
and hot glued the ends.
I also added a pop top to the back as the hanger.
I made a bunch of rosettes and recently I saw someone
had a design on the edges so I used my hole punch and
punched every other score mark with it
I added some stick pins to the top
here is my rosette with the little ghost attached with
hot glue and those cute little google eyes. I did
ink around the edges of the ghost for depth.
I used my SCAL 3 and the
Ecraft to cut the BOO out
I got this file last year from
somewhere and can't remember
where from, so if you recognize it
please let me know and I will link you!!!
and here is my finished product.
Isn't this just the cutest ever?
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I will see you back here in 2 weeks. Now don't forget to make your own decorations for a Halloween Party and link up at Decorate to Celebrate I can't wait to see what you create!
