Halloween/Fall Creations Seasonal BLOG HOP

Welcome to the •MAKE•IT •CraftySeasonal Blog Hop! This month we will be featuring Halloween and Fall creations. If you’ve arrived from the talented Lisa's "Pretty Paperie Sweets" blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost, don't worry, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here with Julie, in The Scrap Zone.

It’s easy to hop along with us – just click the link at the end of each blog post to move to the next one. Just a gentle reminder to please leave comments for the other bloggers as you hop through! Enjoy.

In this hop we have 9 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using various CTMH products from the Annual Inspirations catalogue. These should help you get in a Spooktacular mood for Halloween.

I looove decorating for Halloween, so I created a spooky luminary. This rectangular luminary really sets the mood when it is lit up and the room is dark.
TIP: use a battery-operated tea light, so no fire-hazard with this project.

I chose a different Halloween image for each of the four sides. The Haunted House, Raven, Spider Webs, and Bones were all cut using the Cricut Arbooking cartridge. To add a little sparkle along the bottom and up along the edges I used some shimmer trim.

TIP: To help make the light glow, I used wax paper to line the inside - much more affordable than vellum.

Here is what each of the 4 sides look like lit up.

The following supplies were used:
Card Stock: Colonial white for the bones, Black frames and cutouts
Itty bitty sparkles for the eyes of the raven and the spider
Marker: Shin Han Golden Yellow used to colour in the windows in the haunted house
Shimmer trim: Black
Cricut cartridge Artbooking: All the images came from pages 70 and 71, the frames were all cut at read dial 7" and the raven at 1.75", the haunted house at 3.5", and the spider at 2.5".
