Happy Monday everyone! It is almost BOO day and I have to say I have been having a blast making Halloween and Fall themed projects and love jumping at a chance to participate in anything that involves crafting those themes. If that is you too, then does Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog have a treat for you! The fantabulous Design Team has brewed you up some amazing creative potions that just can’t be missed! Head over, check it out, link up and join the Boo Spectacular party! Just be sure to make a project that has at least one Cricut cut and has black and orange in the project!
For this project I decided to make another yarn wreath using the colors black and orange. The wreaths are super easy technically to make, just time consuming. A great “couch potato” project. All you do is get a 12 inch foam wreath form Michale’s or Jo-Anns and being wrapping the wreath with yarn using colors and patterns of your desired choice.
Once the wreath was done, I began making my embellishments. Using Cricut Craft Room so I could manipulate the images, I began with the witch. I used Mini Monsters page 41. I hid her face so I could use Peachy Keen Dolly Dumplings for her face. I cut her and all her layers at roughly 4 inches. I used some pastels from Stampin’ Up for her cheeks and Gelly Rolls for her freckles and eyes. I added some Glossy Accents to her eyes and shoes. I added some polka dot orange ribbon and purple tulle around her hat and more polka dot orange ribbon and purple bling to her dress.
For the banner, I used the basic circle cut from Mini Monograms at 1 and 1.5 inches. I stamped each orange circle with Halloween sentiments from Close to My Heart, Perfect Fit Halloween stamp set using black in from Stampin’ UP. I embossed the black circles with Cuttlebug’s Spots and Dots folder. I threaded orange baker’s twine from Twinery and glued down with my ATG gun. I finished the witch by nesting her using hot glue onto some sparkling black and purple tulle that I made into a flower and pinned into the foam wreath.
For the scaredy cat, using Paper Doll Dress Up page 49. Using Cricut Craft Room, I hid her face, cut her at roughly 4 inches and then distressed her with some white stamp ink. I used Peachy Keen’s Everyday Character with white stamping ink from Close to My Heart. I used green Stickles for her eyes and black Glossy Accents for her nose. I tied a 1/8 inch ribbon around her neck.
For the moon, I used Mini Monograms circle cut at 4.25 inches. I embossed with Cuttlebugs Spots and Dots and dusted with Ranger Perfect Pearls Biscotti to add shimmer.
For the bat, I used Create a Critter 2 and cut it out at 2.75 inches and fastened a wire spring to the back of it and stuck the other end into the foam wreath securely.
I finished the wreath by adding a 2 inch orange and black bow for the wreath to hang from.
