Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year next to Christmas. Usually I have completed at least one Halloween project by now but this year I have been slow to return to creating. When I saw this paper mache witches hat in Michaels I was finally inspired to start something for Halloween. I also purchased two paper mache pumpkins, but that is for another post.
I started by painting the hat with two coats of black acrylic paint. I had my papers chosen in advance - the wonderful new Graphic 45 collection "An Eerie Tale" - and was inspired to start right away. I love fussy cutting and layering and the Graphic 45 papers are perfection for this. You can see some of my past Halloween projects on my previous post.
I made patterns and started cutting. I use Elmers glue to attach the papers as it holds well and I can spread the glue with my fingers to all of the edges with not much mess. So here I am cutting and gluing and having a good time. Stay tuned for more photos as this project progresses.
To see all of the creations being made on other blogger's workdesks go to the Stamping Ground blog at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ and share by posting your workdesk update!
We are still having beautiful sunny Fall weather here in this part of WI. It is to be in the high 50's for the next few days. We did have a couple of cold days a week ago and wouldn't you know the heat in my apartment wasn't working, so a very cold night but now fixed - I hope! Wishing you a happy day today!
