A Little Halloween Decor!

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I am excited to share the new MFT Spider Web Die-namics and Stamp set with you today. I created a Halloween decoration from a paper mache witch's hat and I am really happy with how it came out! You know, when what you picture in your mind actually works!


I started by painting the brim of the hat with black paint and covering the top of the hat with patterned paper, Echo Park Chillingsworth. I did use 12 x 12 paper. 


Then I used the new Spider Web Die and cut the web from MFT Heavyweight Cardstock Black Licorice and the spiders from black glitter paper. Then I stamped a sentiment from the set and cut it out with one of the Sentiment Strips Die-namics


To create the ruffle on the the brim of the hat I used the 1/4" Rosette Die-namics. I cut five strips, glued the ends together and then folded along the score lines. I used 3 in 1 glue to attach the ruffle to the hat. The final touch is orange, glitter tulle tied in a bow.
