Spooky!

What can you do with a polystyrene ring a bit of crepe paper and some Sizzix dies that have sat on a shelf forever ( They seemed a great purchase at the time!)...........

Make a wreath, I can never get these rings covered so they look nice... so this time I've just painted it with acrylic paint... bright green!

I cut lots of rageddy flowers with Flower Layers No2 die.. crepe paper is ideal for this as it's nice and floppy... and cheap! They were pinned on with a punched flower in black flocked card (Doodlebug I think)and a flower shaped sequin.
(Sounds scarily like you know what!)
The Phrase "Sweet with Skull" die was cut and pinned in place. Bats cut with the BatsNo3 die were covered in black glass glitter and glued onto florists wire and poked into the ring


an alternative is Pumpkin Toy....
or House, Spooky


All papers are Basic Grey Eerie..
This is the project for the monthly Efemera Ink group which meets next Monday...... I'm cutting it a bit fine with the samples...there's a Home Sweet Home one to make yet!
