Recycling Halloween Spirits!
I love Halloween, it is a wonderful holiday filled with creativity and fun. I love the costumes and all of the camaraderie that we all share.
I love creating unique items for my Halloween décor. So this year I decided it was time to use those junky paper sales flyers in my newspaper for something fun.
A Haunted Wreath!
So easy and fun to make!
one wire hanger bent in a ring
bottle of acrylic paint
squares of junk paper with a slit cut in
Pearl Paper to make the ghost
Teresa Collins assorted embossing folders
Lots of fun.
Steps: Take the bent hanger and paper squares. I tear a hole in the center of each of the paper squares and coat them with acrylic paint. I use my hands and get covered with paint. I love doing this. Now at first you will think it won’t work and then all of the sudden the papers dry up and start filing out your wire form.
I love the texture from the acrylic on the junk paper. I let some of the type show thru and it makes a wonderful indoor decorating item. Once dry then you can put on your embellishments.
I chose to make ghosts and leaves to haunt my wreath. I applied the texture to the paper first. I love my Teresa Collins Embossing Folders, and I used them to texture my ghosts.
I used the Stardust and Décor Circles to emboss my Ghost. Then I smeared colored glitter glue on all. I love my wreath and can’t wait to make more of them. Please join me in using items that we normally throw away to create fun.
See you next week!
