Happy Halloween.

Jennifer Snyder sharing some Halloween decor a la Creative Embellishments. The new collection of wood decor designs enables you to create gifts and decor pieces for any occasion.

I chose the whimsical Witch Legs  to decorate.  These  are generously sized measuring  7.7″w x 11.8″h each  so  they  are  wonderful  for  hanging  on  walls  and  doors.  

I painted the wood pieces with black acrylic paint before decorating.  After the paint was dry, I cut pieces of paper from Simple Stories Boo Crew collection;  bold and bright, cheery and fun.  If you look at the individual sections on  the legs, I was not concerned with perfectly cut pieces.  I wanted some of the black painted wood to show.

After the pieces were glued in place, I coated the entire leg and shoe with Deco Art crackle glaze and let dry completely – for those fabulous crackles to appear.  Gotta say, waiting for crackles to appear is like watching grass grow.  I was going to check the progress every 15 min.  Oh oh oh there’s a crackle.

Next after the crackles were dry, I assembled the Creative Embellishments  bat shaker and filled it with Trick or Treat shaker mix from Buttons Galore.

 

 

Fun finishing touches were added to complete the whimsical witch legs.

I topped with orange and black buttons from Buttons Galore, Cob Web lace bows and 3D bat buttons also from Buttons Galore.  The shaker mix can be used for accents as I did with the little stars on the boots.

I’ll leave you with one final image of the finished witch legs hanging on my front door welcoming everyone to my house.

 

Happy Halloween and happy crafting.  Be sure to check out all the wooden home decor designs available at Creative Embellishments.
