Wow! Are you ready for Halloween? Where does the time go? It's a fun time around here. Parties are booked. Costumes are still in the thinking stage. Any ideas for the 80's era?
These wooden masks are painted with acrylic craft paint and sprayed with a clear gloss. Squares of craft paper were glued behind the eyes to give them a very playful expression.
Glue and glitter give them plenty of sparkle. They are outlined with a a Black Sharpie marker. These look great in potted plants or in arrangements of fall foliage, apples or pumpkins.
Styrofoam balls wrapped in strips of Halloween fabric make simple decor for tables and mantels. Nestle them among fall leaves or group two or three on a tray.
Black tulle net, feathers, a black rose and ribbons were added to a purchased mask. If you like to collect bits of ribbon, buttons and odds and ends this is the perfect project to use some of those whimsical tidbits.
The finishing touch for your Halloween table could be this witch hat. It is quite glamorous with it's finery. A plain cardboard hat was decoupaged with torn pages from a book and then given a smokey wash. Curved edges made with glue and glitter. Strips of fabric are pleated and set with a glue gun. The crowning touch more feathers, tulle and a black bird.
May all of your happy holidays begin with a spooky Halloween!
