Halloween Ornament

Just a few more days until the fun spooktacular night that's filled with goblins, ghouls, and all sorts of creatures. Which leaves just enough time for one last project. And for this project I have an ornament, perfect for that last bit of decorating. So let's get going on how it was made.


I started with a small piece of glossy cardstock that was cut to fit between two pieces of glass.  I simply inked the cardstock with Orange Kurecolor Ink.  To create the splotches on the cardstock, I just flicked it with a couple drops of alcohol.


Next, using my Zig Writer in Black, I stamped a skeleton and sentiment.


Once the ink is completely dry, place one piece of glass under the cardstock, one piece of glass on top of the cardstock, and then wrap the edges of your "sandwich" with foil tape.


To take away the shine of the foil tape, I used my Zig Painty FX pen in Black.  I just randomly painted the edges as I didn't want to fully cover the tape.


Next, I painted a metal frame with my Black Zig Painty FX pen. Again, I wanted a thin coat of paint so the metal would slightly show through.


Once the paint was dry on the frame, I mounted the glass piece on top. Then I found a bauble in my stash that I inked with Orange Kurecolor Ink and attached to the metal frame.  To hide the jump rings I used to attach the bauble, I added a die cut bat.


Lastly, I added a strip of ribbon so the ornament could be hung.


 As an added note for all those attending parties and Trick or Treating, please be safe out there.
