Fall/Halloween Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to my part of Nicolette's Fall/Halloween Blog Hop for Day 2.  You should have come here from Gill.

For today's project, I incorporated a broom, eye screws, Cricut cuts, packaging twine, and another of Lisa's fabulous bows.

Yes, those are my Skechers in the picture.  I had to stand on the table to get the whole thing in the picture.  The witches' hats are from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.  I used Make The Cut for the letters.  The font was TypoUpright BT.    I was going to post a close-up picture of the font, but my picture didn't cooperate with the uploading process.

From here, please go see what Lisa has created for your viewing pleasure today.  I hope everyone has a blessed and beautiful Sunday.

Fall/Halloween Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to my part of Nicolette's Fall/Halloween Blog Hop.  You should have come here from Gill's

For my Day 1 project I created a sort-of wreath for the front door.

I started with an orange plate charger from Michael's.  The "Happy Halloween" in the middle is actually a coaster, also from Michael's (are you beginning to see a pattern here?).  The flowers are from the Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge, cut at 1 inch using the Shadow feature and then layered.  I used Bazill cardstock on the flowers.  I also used the Studio G glitter glue from the $1 tower baskets at Michael's on the flowers.   Some of them have little skull beads in the center.  I hot glued everything together.  The skeleton hands were hot glued on the back of the charger to look like they were reaching around.  A ribbon was glued on the back with E6000 as a hanger. 

The bow, I have to admit, I didn't do myself.  My good friend, Lisa, fashioned it for me because mine always look terrible. 

I am really glad I participated in this hop.  It actually inspired me to do more Halloween decorating than I usually do. 

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of my project before continuing on to Lisa's blog to see what she's created.
