Webster's Pages: Trick or Treat Blog Hop!

Welcome to Webster's Pages Trick or Treat Blog Hop! (You should have came from Larissa's blog but you can always go to Webster's Pages blog and start hopping with us!) Today the design team is featuring projects with the "Once Upon A Halloween" collection. For my project I made a spooky piece of home decor. Take a look...


First I cut a 4.25" square of heavy cardboard and then started layering - patterned paper, vellum, punched borders, mini messages stickers, that sweet cat cameo and jewels. I stitched things in between adhering and added pop dots for some layers.


 I punched a spider web and then placed the purple resin flower in the center. I used a black and white striped straw as the "dowel" and hot glued the layered piece to the top. (The straws were in a package of orange/white and black/white at TJ Maxx.) 


I have a collection of vintage wooden spools and used one as the base that I jazzed up with patterned paper and flower (LOVE the new ones). I hot glued the flower and the straw to the base for a little more stability.


Super simple and a fun new piece to add to my Halloween decor! Your next stop on the blog hop is the fabulous Emeline!

Be sure to leave a comment here and on each and every blog you visit on the hop. There are "Hidden Halloween Treats" (prizes) along the way - winners will be announced at Webster's Pages next Friday.

Thanks for stopping by today!
