I love crows for decorating this time of year. And they are everywhere! This is a $1 Store project featuring my crow and a Christmas Box. I picked up the crow for $2 and the box was $1.25 and I grabbed the wee witches hat at Michaels with my 50% coupon bring it to about $1.50. This whole project ended up costing about $5! Not to bad.
I popped the cone portion of the witches hat off so I could wrap it in matching paper. Then I glued it back into place.
The 31 is from the TH Gothic Boo die. I attached the tinsel and used my heat gun to age the tinsel.
I used up some old orange ribbon and attached this skull from a $1 bracelet. TH Skull n' Cross is some perfect hardware I glued in place by folding the brim.
Another skull and some glittery Halloween accents glued on top.
I made a banner with grungepaper and HAPPY HALLOWEEN stamped. I used some walnut stain ink to distress the edges. The attach with hot glue. A little glitter pumpkin and Spanish moss complete the creepy scene.
The Iron Fence boarder die is wonderfully gothic. The I attached the Word Band. A little more tinsel adds some bling.
I love the Apothecary Skull! He's so creepy. Then I used the eye ball from the Remnant Rubs- Elements.
Another great addition to my Halloween Collection!
I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!
This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale! How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern. I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights. I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one. Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial. So, I decided to create my own. With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life. Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.
Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch. Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself. In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will. Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid. I can draw but not s…
Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees. OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas. Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.
There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base. Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.
More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman. I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.
Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees. Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.
They look like flocked Canadian trees. Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.
Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold. I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs. Then wrapped the b…
