Halloween Table Decoration

Fall...cooler weather, shorter days, and Halloween. That one ghoulish day when we can all pretend to be any character we want.  And let's not forget about the fun parties.  So I created a fun table decoration just for a Halloween party.  So let's get started with how I made  this project.

To start, I added a few glass beads to a Ziploc bag, then added in a few drop of Orange Kurecolor Ink. Then just shake the bag until all the beads are coated in ink.

Then, I simply dumped the beads out on my craft sheet to dry, which only takes a minute.

Next, I used a Zig Painty FX pen in Black to paint the rim and bottom of a glass.  I used a small piece of decorative tape to mask off the stem of the glass, this way I had a clean paint line.  Once the paint was dry, I simply removed the tape.

To add a bit of contrast, I used a Zig Painty pen in Iris.

Now on to the medallions.  I used my die cutting machine and steel die to make three medallions.  I used my Zig Writer in Arctic White to add a bit of detail around the edges.  Then, I used my Zig Writer in Black to outline the center portions.

Now to put it all together.  Start by adding the beads into the glass.  Next I die cut a couple of bats and used my Zig 2 Way Glue pen to adhere them to the glass.

 One medallion I stamped a short sentiment in the center and then simply laid at the bottom of the glass.

Next, I added straight pins to the back of two medallions. One of them I simply laid across the glass.  The next I stood up in the beads and also added a bit of ribbon.

A fun project to create, and how cute would this be sitting amongst your other Halloween decorations?
