SOC Trick or Treat
It’s almost time for Halloween! Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is only a month away and I’m not even going to mention how many days until Christmas!
Trying to recuperate this week, I did decide to play along to the new challenge in The Sisterhood of Crafters.
Lisa B is our hostess and the challenge is TRICK or TREAT – make a Halloween inspired project. With all the wood pieces we have in the garage, I had my husband cut me several 1 ½” by 1 ½” blocks because I wanted to create some Halloween decorated photo blocks. I had made some several years ago and still had the Halloween papers which had blocks of seasonal words. I couldn’t even tell you who the papers were from, that’s how old they are.
Yeah, my wire bending ability isn’t the best but it will do. I used craft wire which I glued into a small drilled hole on top of the block. These came along really quick. Painted the blocks with black gesso yesterday morning before work, took the papers with me and punched/cut them out during lunch. And also snipped the wire to length and curled one end. Before heading to bed, I added the paper squares and gave it a nice coat of glossy Glue n Seal. Got up this morning and glued the wires into the drilled holes using Beacon’s 3 in 1 Craft glue. I still need to add ribbon to some, but they work pretty good to hold spooky messages or photos even is the wire is all wonky!
I still have Halloween papers left, sigh! Guess I might have the girls help me make up some more! Since I also have some old Christmas papers, I might have to try to create some of these with the Christmas theme! But I don’t want to think Christmas yet – let’s enjoy fall first. Head over to The Sisterhood of Crafters to check out what the rest of the gang came up with – lots of great inspiration and then join us and play along! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
I’m off to work, tonight I have to clean my craft room. Just have to…… it’s an unspeakable mess .
Until next time……..
