Boo Candle

We're just a few days away from that spookiest of nights, so what better time to show off a fun home decor item? I used the ornament template from JnW Crafts to create the jack-o-lanterns.

To start, I used the ornament template and felt to make the jack-o-lanterns. Then i used a brown marker to give them a few highlights. Lastly, I cut out some eyes from black felt and added the letter stickers.

 Now on to the candle. I wrapped it with some burlap, then added a strip of tulle. Next, I added a felt owl.

Now I just layered the jack-o-lanterns on top of the candle,and voila, project complete.

How cute would this be as a part of a centerpiece on a table of sitting on top of a mantle?

Boo to You!

It's the beginning of a new month, which means it's time for a new challenge at Scrap It Girl. This month's challenge is all about embossing folders. With Halloween just around the corner, it's the perfect time to make a spooktacular card.

And it was super quick to make too! I just ran my cardstock through my embossing machine using a web embossing folder. Then I used a bit of black and orange ink to make the web design pop.

To make the spider, I started with four strips of wire, wrapped them together, bent the ends for feet, then painted it black.

I used my JnW Crafts ornament template and some orange felt to make the spider.

Now it's just a matter of putting the spider together. Of course I added a couple of googly eyes.

To finish the card, I added some dimensional paint drops to the spider and a sentiment.
