DT Monday Challenge ~Halloween Decor

Good Morning!  Welcome back for Design Team Monday Challenge. This week's DT challenge is Halloween Decor. We had to make anything BUT a card or layout.

For my project I bought a paper mache witch hat at Michael's and altered it. First I painted the hat inside and out, using black acrylic paint by Americana. Then I sprayed the brim with Moon Shadow Mist "Bucket O'Blood Red" by Lindy's Stamp Gang. Once it was all dried, I wrapped the cone part of the hat using some material I got at Joann's, and glued it down with my hot glue gun. I used the "Raggedy Wizard" pattern file on  my hat. He stands about approx. 8 inches tall and the pumpkin is about 5 inches. Behind the paper pieces I placed a Halloween pick I got at Michael's as well. On the edge of the hat's brim I hot glued feather boa all around the hat.

The pictures really don't do the project justice. It looks so much better in person. This was I fun project to make.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team projects!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
