Happy Halloween All! Tara here, back again with a spooktacluar project for Creative Embellishments. I’ve created an Altered Witch Hat perfect for Halloween decor and table centerpieces.
I started with a paper mache witch hat that I purchased at Michael’s. First I used a Prima chicken wire stencil and texture paste to add some dimension. Then I sponged dabbed the entire hat with matte black paint. Next going in with silver Inka Gold to emphasis the raised areas created with the stencil. Then I started adhering my handmade paper flowers, using G45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe and the TH Big Blooms flower die. I layered several paper flowers then added satin blooms on top. Also, arranging various paper leaf dies in the flower clusters.
Next I embossed all my Creative Embellishments chipboard elements, including the MINI SPIDER WEBS, 3/4 MINI GEARS and the title TRICK OR TREAT. I rubbed silver Inka Gold over all my chipboard embellies. I added a small metal skull to the web, a big glitter spider, several black feather along with a few black sprays.
Lastly, I spritzed the entire hat with white ink spray to soften the look! I hope you all enjoyed this project and are able to gain some inspiration for your own Halloween creations!
