Hello!! I have been off work these past few days and have been super BUSY making lots of fun Halloween and Fall projects. I will be sharing all of them over the next few weeks.
First of all, I must give all the credit to Hilary Kanwischer. She was the guest designer for SVGCuts in September and this was her project. I will not be re-writing on how to make this as she does a terrific job on her post for SVGCuts titled Spooky Pumpkin Cauldron. Her pictures are much better than mine as well. I did use my own embellishments and patterned paper so it's not an exact replica.
Secondly, there is actually a flickering, battery-operated tea light inside the pumpkin's head. It doesn't really show up here but looks awesome in my dark living room.
Lastly, I was really surprised with how little patterned paper I needed for this project. Mostly, you will need several sheets of black card stock (about 4 to 5).
More details below!! I really can't begin to tell you how much I LOVE how this turned out.
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY TODAY!!
|The whole project is sitting on a short, wide-based candle holder.|
|I used Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the flower. The feathers are|
from the Halloween craft section in Hobby Lobby.
|All the patterned paper is from October Afternoon's Witch Hazel Collection.|
|The fence and ghosts are die cuts as well. |
Love how the ghost peeks out from behind the cauldron.
|The filler is Spanish Moss. I love the creepy, bony hand reaching out of the cauldron!!|
