It sure is hard to believe that September is nearly over, and Halloween is just around the corner! I thought I would share a few Halloween projects that I made for my booth. Of course you already probably know that they involve glitter and Mod Podge, my two favorite crafting supplies!
I really love this owl from Karen at the Graphics Fairy. Doesn't he look spooky? I had an unfinished wood plaque in a neat shape that I loved, and I thought it would be perfect to create this glittery wall hanging with. I also found the orange and black patterned paper over at the Background Fairy (Karen's other site). I began by painting the edges of the plaque black, then decoupaged on the papers, followed by a dusting of glitter. I really like how it turned out!
A scrap piece of masonite that just happened to be the right size became a cute little hanging. I just decoupaged this adorable little girl popping out of a pumpkin, which I found over at Moonlight Magic. A wire hanger, and some crinkly orange seam binding and black raffia (oh, and I can't forget the giltter!), made for an easy, peasy project!!
I really love making glittered jar candles, and I used the same images as I did on the hangings. Orange, black, and gold crinkly seam binding add a fun touch! Since I am new at having a booth, and not sure what to expect sale wise, I didn't want to get too carried away making tons of Halloween stuff all at once. If these sell out, I'll get busy and make some more!
They were so much fun to make! And they look even prettier when lit!
Just as a reminder, my friend Miranda over at Blooming in Alaska is having a giveaway to celebrate her 100 followers! She is giving away a brand new copy of Flea Market Style, as well as a $25 gift certificate to anything in my Etsy shop. I know she would be thrilled for you to pop by and say hi (and become one of her followers, hint, hint!). But hurry, tomorrow is the last day you can enter! Good luck!!
