I love decorating for Halloween, so I thought I'd create something fun for my fireplace mantel using the new "Ghostly Greetings" designer paper and some wooden letters. It turned out pretty cute, although I must admit that it doesn't seem to have enough bling, so I'll probably dress it up a bit more. I have some ideas, like adding some jack o' lanterns or some stamped candy corn to the front....I'll have to think about it!
The wooden letters are about 6" high, and I got them from Joann's. I painted them black, then traced and cut out the letters. Added some ribbon, a stamped skull from "Batty for You", and a scalloped circle. Hmmm...maybe I'll add some more of those little guys from that set to this...
I will be offering this as a class on October 24th, just in time for Halloween. Cost is $15. For the first time, I will be offering this as a class-by-mail, so if you're interested and want this cute "BOO" sitting on your mantle this Halloween, let me know! Cost is $20, including shipping, and I will include all the pieces you need to put it together. I can even put it together for you if you prefer, just let me know! Ribbon and patterned paper used may vary slightly from what is shown.
Date: Friday, October 24th
Where: My stamp pad!
Class should last about 1 hour.
Supplies Used: Batty for You stamp set, grosgrain and patterned ribbons, Ghostly Greetings designer paper, wooden letters, black paint, scallop and circle punches.
