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.
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.
