I just wish it was a bit bigger here in the UK. I try to do my part though by holding a Halloween party every year, even though the list of attendees seems to get smaller as all my friends have kids and decide that costume parties aren't for them anymore. Boring farts I say!!
Aaaaanyways..... on to a couple of decs I did this week
Papier mache pumpkin!
I'm afraid I did cheat a little as I bought the papier mache base from Hobbycraft, but this is my pumpkin gal after I...
- coated her with orange acrylic paint
- did some shading and dappling
- coated her in glitter glue to make her sparkly and give her more of a shine
- hot glued some fake autumnal leaves and then glittered the leaf veins (my first time with a glue gun, my new favourite tool!!)
Planning to pop her on the coffee table, on a nice black sparkly cobweb lace tablecloth, with some LED tealights inside
I've also been working on making a wreath this week for the front door
I took a polystyrene ring and covered it in rusty orange coloured ribbon, and then cut up some more fake leaves, and cut out a load of bats/skulls/ghosties out of foam
Then got the hot glue out again!!! I started with the larger leaves and then added some smaller leaves on top, then added some googly eyes to my foam skulls n ghosties and added them to the wreath. Then I recalled some grey-black [fake] roses I'd bought the other day and decided to add those around the centre. And then I got the glitter out again and glittered the leaf veins and the petals of the roses
And that's my Halloween fun for this week
