Halloween Post 3 ~ Decorating for halloween
The Halloween theme carries on, the cakes are made and now its time to make some halloweeny decorations :)
Simply and cheaply made again, these banners are made from halloween confetti available for a £1 in any supermarket or on Ebay. You can buy mixed packs or individual designs such as pumpkin faces or little ghosts. I have threaded a mix of designs; skulls, pumpkin faces, spiders and ghosts on 2 strands of embroidery cotton, but you could easily use black sewing cotton. I have then draped them around the outside of Gertie's Cottage :)
The halloween signs are card making embellishments from a pack bought in Hobbeycraft.
The other thing I had a go at making this week is candles!! Disastrous, LOL and the label on the candle jar said 'Believe all things are possible' Ha!!
Anyway, I tried with two little skulls and stuck bits of cocktail sticks in the top with intention of dribbling hot wax down the cocktail to make a candle.
Well.... hot wax got everywhere including my fingers and this is what I got... reminds me of a couple of people... LOL
These are just halloween fun makes and will be discarded in the bin after halloween so they don't have to be perfect, but I am quite happy with the candelabra for the Wizards and Wands Library though :0)
Last halloween post tomorrow before Gertie's Halloween bash for Kat's Big Halloween Blog Party.
