My Rusty Pickle Blog Hop Project:
Happy Halloween Hanger
by Julie Walton
and here are the instructions/tutorial:
Rusty Pickle - Costume Party Line of Papers, Chipboard Frame, Buttons, Gems
Paint, Shimmerz Paint and spray
Wet lightly or mist one full sheet of paper and gently place it within the embroidery hoop, be careful not to tear. While paper is wet tear the excess away, leaving some showing around the edges like a ruffle.
Paint the wooden embroidery frame to your liking, dont worry about being perfect. I used Shimmerz paint and a gloss acrylic.
Spray the paper/frame with Shimmerz mist or something similar.
Cut a circle from the paper of your choice, best to be little to no pattern. Make a pumpkin face with buttons, add stickles and rick rack for the stem.
Using a chipboard open type frame, ink the entire surface with black. Spray with Shimmerz mist or something similar. Adhere to the top part of the circle.
Take a wide strip of paper of your choice and fringe it, so it looks like grass. Adhere several rows to the bottom part of the circle. Adhere your pumpkin with pop dots within the fringed paper.
Place your title within the chipboard frame. I cut out the words from a sheet of paper and cut them into squares and inked each.
Thread floss through some larger buttons, add some rick rack to the tops and adhere them within the fringed paper at the bottom, like pumpkins sitting in a field.
I added some gems and dew drops randomly in the fringed paper as well. I then cut out a pumpkin and a witch from the patterned paper and added them randomly. I dotted stickles on the chipboard frame and then added some rickrack to the top of the embroidery hoop using the closure to tie it on.
And its ready to hang! Hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog and that you were inspired by my project. I will randomly choose one comment from all of the comments left on my blog to receive a little kit with the things you need to recreate my project! So go forth and comment!
Dont forget to visit the next Rusty Pickle Chef blog for more inspiration!
