Hi Pebbles Friends!
It’s Amanda, & today I am sharing a super sweet Halloween decor item that makes for a spook-tacular gift!
I LOVE Halloween, and the new Spooky Boo collection is just perfect for Halloween cards, decor & memory keeping!
Here’s the gift I’m sharing today…..
Trick or Treat!!!
How fun is this?!!
Not everyone in my neighborhood celebrates this holiday, so to let Trick Or Treaters know if it’s ok to visit, we all hang a wreath, banner or decorative item on our front doors. I thought this cute door hanger would be a perfect gift for our new neighbors across the street. I hope they like it!
Here’s how to make one of your own….
Start by trimming a sheet of chipboard into a 5″ wide triangle with an 8″ point. Cover both sides with your fave papers from the Spooky Boo collection. I chose the reverse side of HOCUS POCUS for the front side, and SWEET TOOTH for the back. Use your We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile, or similar tool, to punch holes in the top corners of the triangle.
To add that ‘Halloween’ feel, (& hide those ugly chipboard edges) apply METALLIC CREAM CHALK in black to the edges of the triangle.
Insert burlap ribbon into the holes, tying it off with knots to create the ‘handle’. I use burlap as it’s quite sturdy and won’t perish easily! Use 1″wide black ribbon to create the fancy concertina trim at the top of the triangle.
Kinda looks like a carrot as this stage, but once we start embellishing the triangle you’ll barely see that orange base!
Embellish with faux spiders web (stretched cotton wool), and one of the smaller WALL BATS in the center of the triangle.
Next, foam mount PRINTED CARDSTOCK SHAPES on top of one another to create a focal point. I love the framed witch silhouette supported by the little bat ephemera, but there are tons of options in the PRINTED CARDSTOCK SHAPES pack to choose from!
Here’s a closer look for you…..
Lookin’ boo-tiful already! But it really needs more…….
For my gift, the ‘Trick Or Treat’ sentiment is a perfect adornment to the top of my decorative door hanger, but again many of the PRINTED CARDSTOCK SHAPES or 6″ x 12″ ACCENT STICKERS would work for personalizing your decor!
I also tuck a few PRINTED CARDSTOCK SHAPES into the top of the focal point. Now it’s starting to look super spooky!!!
Add more ribbon & trim to the ‘handle’, as well as a length of ribbon at the triangle point. Adorn the ribbon with more cobwebs, and for finishing touches attach those fabulously freaky WALL SPIDERS.
Witches, spiders, bats, & pumpkins – totally CREEPIN IT REAL!!!
Here’s how it looks hanging on the door…..
A spook-tacular Halloween gift that really does say Boo!
I hope I have inspired you to get started on your Halloween crafts with the new Spooky Boo collection today!
