Halloween Wreath

I am so excited to share this Halloween wreath using products from Whisker Graphics.

As fast as the months are coming on us, it isn't too early to be thinking about Halloween. Today I will share with you how you can make a fast and easy wreath.

First I started with this stryofoam wreath and some black felt. I just used the 8.5 x 11 piece of black felt and cut them into strips. I used 3 piece of black felt for my wreath. Rather than using hot glue I used straight pins with black heads and started pinning the felt onto the wreath. 

This is the starting of wrapping the felt.

This is the wreath all wrapped with the felt.

Now you start wrapping the wreath with the twine. I used the Divine Twine Metallics and just started winding until I felt there was enough on the wreath.

Now comes the part where you make it your own. I added a spider from the Dollar Store and made the two smaller spiders using my Silhouette Cameo and a little paint. I also cut out the flower using my Silhouette Cameo and put them on the wreath and finally added a bow to finish off the wreath.

Please don't forget to check out all the wonderful products at the WhiskerGraphics store.

Stick it Down Card Sketch

Today I get to share with you my fun card I made using the sketch from Stick it Down.  You have until the end of the month to use this sketch and create your own card and share it on Stick it Down.  Who knows you might be next month's Guest Designer or win the month's RAK.  Go on, give it a try.

Something fun coming your way

I love to alter items and that means pretty much anything. So when I was asked to participate in an altered art blog using paint brushes I said yes.  I participated in an altered paint brush swap once before and had so much fun that I couldn't wait to make another one.  So this is just the time to give it a try again.

Mark you calendar for "The Handyman's Holiday Blog Hop", October 5th through the 8th.  There are some great ladies involved in this hop so I know there will be lots of inspiration.  I hope you will join in the hop and get some inspiration and want to create your own altered paint brush.
